This is mainstream for Rich. While most go the SBC/BBC route Rich is the salmon going up stream to mate.

Rich,
  What size is that early model injected hemi in the background of the picture.
Oh by the way the Packard is very nice also.  smiley
Tom G.
PS. Does the hemi fit in the vega?

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

I saw it first and was keeping quiet about it hoping you all would look at the Packard.

It's a '92 +.030 and it came out of the Vega to make room for the Packard. Also Dan, I don't care what anyone says, I have never mated with a Packard.

Is that because the Packard was a Clipper?

It was from a Patrician and now I am more worried than ever.

On the outside chance some one has not seen an assembled Packard in a Vega, this is it.
