 Remember I said something about a Packard Pick Up truck in the Packard car thread?

 Well , I have one started from that Forty Ford beast  hot wheels thing, but my son has already taken it to Colorado when I was in the hospital.

  But , I found some pictures of a REAL one, a 1938 model , just to prove they did make one, pretty beast too --- I think.:bow:









   There you are , mine will also have the spare tire in the rear fender .AND the hood and grill from the already wrecked 34 -- they are almost the same.

 Thanks Bernd,

  It is nice to have folks who realize it takes work to make them look like they do--- I  have had many NON-modelers ask how many times and what size hammer I used to smash them , and a couple of people actually asked if I used lighter fluid or gasoline to burn up the 50 Ford ragtop!!  These people were not joking --they were completely serious!!

I've also discovered that many people have no idea about anything. My problem is I have a very high curiosity index. I want to know how it works even if it means taking it apart with a hammer. :P

Packard and Cadillac sold funeral  "flower cars" that looked like very fancy pickups, but the bodies were built by Henny or Superior.

Amazing work, Dave! I'd never thought of modeling a junk car with the hood open and the header removed from the block, though it's something I've seen in person countless times.
I would love to try my hand at this, but I model the WW2 years and you'd simply never see anything like this just sitting around as people rabidly collected and donated scrap metal for the war effort (most of which, sadly, was never actually used for the war effort, it turned out...).
