    Inside Packard’s Legendary 1932-39 V12.

    Nope, I don't, Dave.

    I only owned a V12 once - a Mercedes SL. I still kick myself for selling it.

    i got to ride in a v12 packard limo, it was a 36 or 37. very smooth and powerful, i didn't get to drive it. i did get to drive a straight 8 packard it was a coupe, a 39 i think (it was many years ago) i do remember that coupe being the smoothest car i have ever driven without question.

    i don't think tesla will have the same notoriety, but we are comparing 2 totally different vehicles.
    it's time to change the air in my head

    Arr, Bo. I've been down there a few times. I'd keep the top up and the air conditioning on during the Summer and cruise with the top down in Winter.
