|Day 1 was topped off with an outdoor concert by the Air Force Band of Flight playing tunes written by Glenn Miller and members of his Orchestra infront of the hangers.|
|Day 2's main event was the America's Packard Museum. Packard was John DeLorean's first automotive employer.|
|The Packard Museum is located in a restored Packard Dealership building from 1917.|
|This Packard was the last automobile that Al Capone owned.|
|Cheryl checks out a luxurious Packard limo which the museums rents out, chauffeur included! More information here.|
|Packard's service area had an elevator to the 2nd floor where they stored cars for clients while they were on vacation. The train station was just across the street.|
|Larry & Al check out some hidden cars out back.|
|Packard's "Used Cars" even had their own indoor show room.|
|Thanks for all the work & a great weekend, Larry!
