Packards: Salado, TX, April 2006

29th Annual Texas Packard Meet

We had the privilege of attending the Salado, TX Packard meet.

The absence of judging and trophies made for a refreshing and relaxed atmosphere.

Texans are, indeed, some of the friendliest folks you’d care to meet!

Despite the heat, there were almost 50 cars.

We thank meet registrar Beverly C, for making us feel most welcome! Click on any photo to enlarge.
