Bob’s 1953 Packard Caribbean convertible was already unique.

Then he dropped an LS3 engine and 4L65E tranny in it, and topped it off with special “Packard”-etched coilover covers and valve covers.

Bob’s father found the car in Wisconsin, wrenched on it for a while and, after he passed, Bob finished the job in time to take it on the first Hot Rod Power Tour this week.

It’s Bob’s fourth Power Tour, but the Packard’s first. And he’s driving the entire tour.
