The car in ? is the '34 Packard LeBaron Speedster pickup I picked up in one of 3 lots I won in that auction Rich Faber was talking about a couple of weeks ago. Chris Senyitko built it, he did a fine job on it. Matter a fact I picked up 3 of Chris's cars in the 3 lots I won. The '39 Maybach Panel Custom is on the other auction now. Chris also did a '49 Ford Surf Panel custom that I'll probably keep. I'll post it at a later date.

To add more background, the Packard pickup was the first model my friend Jerry commissioned Chris to do for him in 2018. I recall Jerry sending me the in progress pics that Chris would send him. I probably still have them somewhere. I'm pretty sure Jerry and Chris conceived of the idea together. Jerry had a lot of great ideas for interesting modifications, and Chris loved the challenge of bringing Jerry's ideas to life. The '49 Ford surf wagon Hollis references above was also Jerry's idea, among many others. Chris and I talk frequently, and he and I both discuss how much we miss Jerry. The loss goes beyond just him as a person. He was an idea factory, and because of him, numerous unique diecasts exist. I have several of them, and now a lot of others who won them in the auction have some too. Jerry's concepts live on. I think he'd really appreciate the legacy of creativity he left (although he'd laugh at the idea that he was "creative." But he was!). Thanks for spotlighting this, Hollis.

Best,

Rich

Hi Geoff,

I've been planning to do that for a while, actually, but we recently moved, and a lot of my cars are in storage at the moment. Once I get things better organized, I'll try to share some of my models here. Please don't expect a lot anytime soon though! I have a lot of catching up to do since the move. Thanks!

Best,

Rich
