This little gem just arrived today. I found it waiting for me when I got home this evening. I couldn't wait to get some photos of this one.

I am thrilled beyond words with this model. I saw photos of this Packard done by John White a few years ago, it looked amazing. Just this weekend I came across an eBay listing for this particular model, also crafted by John White. It was a bit pricey, but I did not hesitate a moment. I made it mine.

Now it is not quite perfect, a few small issues here and there that I will do my best to address at some point, but even as is. She is so amazing.

Very nice! That detail job really makes it stand-out (or "pop" as I like to say).

Good find!  I have the original BRK version, and it is one of the last Packards in my Packard collection, sitting alongside the 1958 Packard Hawk by Bruce Arnold.

(later)  I just saw on eBay one Frobly red 1958 Studebaker Packard Hawk.  I'm not going to follow up on it but I thought someone else might want to look at it.

Perfect color to contrast with the gold.  This Brooklin model screams out for 2-tone.

It looks great, John, and so does yours, Harv!

I have this "Packardbaker", in its standard color, on display with its proud parents:
