The Hupmobile was being recalcitrant, so it needed to be towed around the corner. These two beautiful Packards were quite obedient and slid right in to their new homes.
The old showroom (the post-war showroom) looks a bit bare now, but there wasn't time to bring in other cars to fill in the blanks. That will probably happen tomorrow. And on Thursday, we take possession of the beautiful 1917 Packard Motorbus. Things are shaping up nicely!
Amid all this madness, I did have a few visitors today. It included a gentleman from Grove OK, another gentleman from Vinita OK, a couple from Victoria, Australia doing the whole Route, and this charming, adorable honeymoon couple from Porcari, Italy (that's in the beautiful region of Tuscany.) I just loved them. They brought me outside to look at the car they rented. They were very embarrassed about the bright color and the smallness of the car, but they were having a great time fulfilling lifelong dreams of cruising Route 66.
That's all for now. A pop up thunderstorm just started, and I'd better get off the computer!
It's not the Hup's fault. They were always sort of out of step. Owners made them think they were Cords... Then one gets parked and gawked at all day you kind of have to expect it.
How many machines do you have? I counted 12 in your picture...
I think we have about 16 that are of a quality to be put in the showrooms, but we also have several others that need some work before they are ready to be shown. We also have a '29 Hupp, but it must be at my ex-husband's house because I haven't seen it for a while.
Will you put the Citroen 2CV in the new showroom?
I'm not sure, Trevor. The Citroen might go to David's house, since he restored it for his current wife.
