    Check this cool car out that Frontier Auto Glass did a classic car windshield replacement



    Packard was an American luxury automobile marque built by the Packard Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan, United States. The first Packard automobiles were produced in 1899, and the last true Packard in 1956, when they built the Packard Predictor their last concept car

    Packard bought Studebaker in 1953 and formed Studebaker-Packard Corporation of South Bend, Indiana. The final "Packards" were 1958 Studebakers wearing "badge engineering".

    1946–1956

    By the end of World War II, Packard was in excellent financial condition, but several management mistakes became ever more visible as time went on. Like other U.S. auto companies, Packard resumed civilian car production in late 1945, labelling them as 1946 models by modestly updating their 1942 models. As only tooling for the Clipper was at hand, the Senior-series cars were not rescheduled. One version of the story is that the Senior dies were left out in the elements to rust and were no longer usable. Another long-rumored tale is that Roosevelt gave Stalin the dies to the Senior series, but the ZiS-110 state limousines were a separate design.[35]

    Although the postwar Packards sold well, the ability to distinguish expensive models from lower-priced models disappeared as all Packards, whether sixes or eights, became virtually alike in styling. Further, amid a booming seller's market, management had decided to direct the company more to volume middle-class models, thus concentrating on selling lower-priced cars instead of more expensive—and more profitable—models. Worse, they also tried to enter the taxi cab and fleet car market. The idea was to gain volume for the years ahead, but that target was missed: Packard simply was not big enough to offer a real challenge to the Big Three, and they lacked the deep pockets with which a parent company could shelter them, as well as the model lineup through which to spread the pricing.

    High Angle Driveline burned down

    High Angle Driveline in Paradise California owned by a dear friend Jesse Jaynes has burned down and now he has no way of making a living. He and his family were lucky enough to get out of town before the fire consumed his business and his residence. Even though I have never met Jesse face to face we have developed a special friendship due to us both being in the driveline business. He is a very well respected driveline builder who specializes in off road and raised suspension four wheel drive trucks. A wonderful guy and he is always ready to help whenever I have a question.

    I cannot imagine what he and his family have experienced so far and have had to do just to escape the fire and now they have nothing left to go back to. The insurance may pay some of the expenses but it will not do it quick enough that he will be able to feed his family today. I am asking that anyone who is in the automotive aftermarket business, driveshaft business, 4x4 truck and off road racers and anyone who has ever had a driveshaft built by any shop in the nation to please donate whatever they can to help out. I am hoping that we can do this together to raise enough money to help support his family until he gets back in business or gets a job.

    The photo you see is not his actual place but its too soon to get any photos at this time. I hope that it is ok that I borrowed the photo from the Daily Herald website and photographer AP photo/ Noah Berger. If it's not ok please let me know and I will remove it. I can be contacted at Denny's Driveshafts 1189 Military Road, Kenmore NY 14217 phone 716-875-6640 email tech@dennysdriveshaft.com
