Woodn’t You Rather Have A Woody?

The Packard Proving Grounds had their annual early summer Cars ‘R’ Stars car show this past weekend. The theme this year was “The Classic Beauty of Wood in Auto Styling”, and there was an assortment of “woodies”, not just in terms of marques, but also there was a variety of body styles on display. While most people visualize woody wagons, and while there was plenty of long roof lumber there were also a couple of impressive convertibles including a Chrysler Town & Country  and a rare Ford Sportsman. There was even a full custom ’48 Ford woody wagon that’s been chopped, slammed, turned into a two-door with suicide doors, and powered by a 4.6L DOHC engine out of a Mustang. In addition to the Ford and Chrysler woodies, Buick and Chevrolet were represented as of course Packard was, with two very nice postwar Packard wagons and an elegant 1930s model. I don’t know if the show organizers were trying to be funny or not, but they even let a couple of Chrysler LeBaron K-Car convertibles, with their fake wood side panels, park with the real woodies.
