Bah!  Humbug!  Only the Franklin and the Packard are classics!  Wonder if the former was once veterinarian Dr. Doehm’s car from Roslyn (at 55 Bryant, under the bypass)?  If so, see <http://sbiii.com/automotv.html>, about half-way down.  Sam, III

I agree with Sam’s comments, (the Franklin and Packard are the only classics). No that Franklin is not the one owned for decades by the vet under the bypass. His was a 1933 Olympic sedan, this is the one that used the same body/fenders/chassis as the Reo Flying Cloud. the last I knew the vet’s car was in Mass.

Hoo, sibling; did I ever mess up (and Walt fell into my unwitting trap)!  Howard’s Chrysler is most definitely a full Classic; so sorry, Howard.  [Thanks, Walt, for identifying the William Dohm (not Doehm) car; I amended my web page accordingly.]  Sam, III
