1940 Packard Sedan & the Ladies

Local Ramonian Don Eccker stops in for some wine tasting while displaying his 1940 Packard Sedan and graciously allow others to be pictured  with this beautiful beautiful piece of art.  Pictured left to right are Ramona Cafe waitress Dalia; Pamo Valley Winery owner, Jennifer Jenkin; Pilot and Ramona Airport Executive, Jaye Matthews; Ramona Cafe owner Sonia Steiner.  I think this car needs to be a permanent fixture at our place!  Don later gave me detailed specs on the car:

It’s a 1940 Packard 4dr sedan that was “Hot Roded” . It has a Chevy Vortec engine, Air Conditioning, Power steering, tilt steering wheel, power brakes, Power windows and a power trunk, The interior (counsel & dash) I fabricated from scratch and installed full working power seats from a Infiniti Q45 luxury car. Chrome completely redone inside and out, Paint was Jaye’s idea, The fenders are 2004 Nissan Maxima Champaign pearl brown and the body is 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser cream White with some of the Champaign brown pearl added.
