    SHOW AND TELL

    We had some visitors again this week.
    Patrick Donlan and Michael Kidd popped in for a tour.

    Patrick is a collector of our models and an avid car enthusiast in general.

    This is his Packard Hawk.
    The engine was started for us and we're happy to report that the car sounds as good as it looks.
