Want an Old Packard?

Specifically, Neil Young’s old Packard:

Only $49,500. Damn I would love to have that old thing.

I thought an old Packard wagon was needed before we step off the cliff of the MA senate race.

I hate hearing this:

Folk singer Kate McGarrigle died yesterday of cancer. Kate performed and recorded with her sister Anna. She was the mother of Rufus and Martha Wainwright. She had a beautiful voice.

@Capt Howdy: Packards just blow me away, but woodys … oh wow. I love them. More metal in that thing than in six Honda Civics.

I dated a girl (yes I did that) in college who had one. the front seat was like a living room and the dash was nickle.

she was bitten on the ass by brown recluse spiders living in that car on two different occasions

@Capt Howdy: Dangerous – that sounds like a job for Click and Clack.

@blogenfreude: Mr. Blogenfruede, is it you, or Nojo, who is a Jalopnik fan? Regardless, here is the idea that struck me, if you, or anyone here, does read Jalopnick, the most wonderful thing about it is that they organize races, which they call the “24 Hours of Lemons,” the rules being that the cars must not have cost more than $500. I am amazed this racing series has not been picked up by one of the cable channels, it would be great TV.

Anywhoo, I have lost all realistic hope that we will buy an Ark and all take to living communally on the high seas, a liberal version of the Scientology SeaOrg (laugh at me if you will, I had real hopes).

But, its certainly a much more modest proposal, we could, if there are enough armchair gearheads among us, enter a Stinque car in the Jalopnik 24 hours of Lemons? No? Anyone?

@Capt Howdy: In college, for no reason but randomness, I was a great fan of Loudon Wainwright III. He did write some good songs, its not just Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road. Sorry to hear this one.

@Promnight: I confess to being the Jalopnik addict. If I could, I would enter the 24 Hours of Lemons … and win! With a crap Alfa Romeo. Because I am that guy.

@blogenfreude: Dude, I would totally throw 20 bucks into the kitty if it means we’d have a Stinque racecar in the 24 Hrs of Lemons.
