2018 Spring Meet on May 6th: "Packards Under the Oak". The Florida Packard Club Spring Meet was a great success.
The turnout was excellent for a first year event, and the quality of the cars and the people were outstanding.
Packards on display represented the best of the 1920s, '30s, '40s and '50s. Everyone had a wonderful time and we gained two new member families. Sincere thanks to Rob, Stacy, Kate, Hank and Robbie Evans for their hard work and smart planning. The weather was superb and the Evans' home and "The Oak" are magnificent and were enjoyed by all. Rob says his family plans to do it again next year! Read the full report with pictures in the next issue of The Caribbean Courier, newsletter of the Florida Packard Club.
2018 Devereaux-Kaiser Collector Car Show: This year's D-K Show took place at Lakewood Ranch in Sarasota on Sunday, January 28th. Rain was in the forecast, but didn't stop the show (actually, the rain did not start until the show was almost over). With 1,200 vehicles on the show field, the show was a big success. Currently sponsored by the Sunshine Region AACA, the show was started by Maurice Devereaux and our founder, Tom Kaiser in Mr. Devereaux's front yard. This year's show was the 49th annual one. The Florida Packard Club had a tent with information, many years' pictures from our annual meets and much history from previous D-K shows. Visit www.sunshinregionaaca.org for more information.
2017 Fall Meet: The Fall Meet was held on Sunday, November 19th. Beautiful Packards were displayed under majestic oaks and outstanding, clear and beautiful weather. In addition to the Packards, attendees enjoyed a visit from the Florida Region of the Horseless Carriage Club (HCCA). The oldest HCCA vehicle displayed was built in 1909, and the newest was from 1927!
Thanks to the many members and friends who attended. A delicious lunch was served and was free to Packard drivers. Special thanks for those who brought their Packards for all to enjoy.
The next Fall Florida Packard Club Meet will take place on the 3rd Sunday in November, 2018.
