The Bonham & Butterfield Collector's Auction, Brookline Mass...

The Birthday Packard. A lucky Maine kid got this for his 18th birthday in 1931. A true Maine denizen, it was his only ride for the next 42 years.

Under the big top (complete with ghostly onlookers... the original owners, maybe?)

That's a bit of a tan something-or-other that I'm shooting over -- forgot to note what.

First you go to a party with girls in red coats then you attend a PHANTOM & GHOST Car auction. Man I'd like to, but we just don't have them here!! LOL Nice shots Big D. Like I said in Brian's post I cry every time I see a car show or auction!

By gum, I was so fired up last night, I forgot that step -- how about a sharp Raja-mobile...



Dawg -

I'm not going to purchase -- I'm hoping to get a story to sell. Unlike most of the other owners who hand restorationover to somespecialist and just throw money at the car, the guy who restored the Rolls Landaulette did all the work himself. He was born on a New England farm where, he said, "We didn't have Nintendo, but we did have a machine shop in the barn." During the resto, he machined parts for the frame, engine and the three governors (throttle, spark advance, and fuel flow) and alot of detail hardware.

The governors do exactly what today's in-car computers do, continuously adjust engine parameters based on load and speed... except instead of one chip, the total governor tally comes to some 1,500 parts!

Sounds like a man after my own heart, D. Wish you luck on the story.
