1917 Paige Detroit,"the most beautiful car in America."

                  To celebrate Tom Lyle Williams,
           116 Birthday.....Jan 19, 1896.....

My cousin, Chuck Williams, aka, BBI, and I met with Steve Snyder, of Vault Cars, at Barrett Jackson's Classic Car Auction, in Scottsdale Arizona....We discussed our great uncle's, 1940 Packard Victoria.... which has been in Steve's, father, Bill Snyder's, collection for over 40 years.

Tom Lyle Williams,

What came out of that meeting, was a decision to meet on March 18, to view the Packard Victoria and make a video, for my blog. Check this video of Chuck and Sharrie toasting Tom Lyle's 116th Birthday.
