• We are aware of the performance issues with the forum. These are due to problems with Comcast's shared lines in the Columbia, PA area. On December 15, we signed a contract to bring a dedicated fiber line to the forum servers. It should take somewhere between 30 and 90 days to install. Thank you for your patience.

Nice watch. "Ask the man who owns one" was Packard's slogan, a foolish slogan if my single experience with Packards was at all representative. When I was in my early 30s, needing a somewhat roomier car to complement my Morgan roadster, I bought a Packard limousine. What a mistake! It stuck out my garage door by more than a meter. Its geriatric fuel pump, located in the gas tank, was too feeble to reliably send gas to the engine, causing many of the Packard's return trips to be made via flat bed truck. But the car was roomy and well equipped, having such amenities a roll-down window between the passenger compartment and the driver's seat, and a built in siren.

I'm going to print this information and keep it with the watch. Many thanks, Brian
