When Robin Cawelti attended an antique car exhibit in San Francisco and saw a yellow pre-war Packard convertible, her perspective on life altered. If there were any way at all she could swing a deal to buy a Packard, she would.
Soon thereafter, one of her colleagues mentioned that his father had an old car he was selling. Cawelti attempted to learn more about the car, but her colleague knew nothing more. A few months later, she learned the car was a 1938 Packard 110 Touring Sedan located in New York near the Finger Lakes region.
