This is the building which houses the Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum. It was founded to preserve the history of The Packard Motor Company. There was a time when The Packard was considered to be the finest automobile in the world. The museum is home to 22 Pre-War Packards ranging from the 1900's to the 1940's. All of the cars are in full working order. The museum also houses lots of memorabilia including hundreds of old dashboard clocks (self-winding), hood ornaments, side lamps, and much more. In my opinion, these cars are pieces of art, beautifully crafted, and every bit as inspiring as any sculpture in any museum, anywhere. Soon, I will show you the cars themselves.
