Woodies and Surfboards at the Murphy Auto Museum, Oxnard, CA

By frankpackard

Dec. 17-18 will be the last weekend of our Woody and Surfboard exhibit.

It was a lot of fun putting it together. I want to thank all the woody and surfboard owners who shared their prized possessions with us to display for the public here at the Murphy Auto Museums.

The exhibit was featured in the Ventura County Star newspaper.

The oldest car on display was our 1929 Ford Model A wagon.
It went out on the road last week with its owners for Christmas.

We have had two 1950 Ford Woodies, a Pontiac and for the last weekend a 53 Chevy Townsman Woody, complete with surfboard on the roof rack.

Visiting the Candy Store in Burlingame, CA

By frankpackard

The Candy Store is a car club in Burlingame, CA.
Members display some of their cars in the club house that was once the Packard Dealership.

The club is planning a road trip south this late summer and hopefully will visit the Murphy Auto Museum in Oxnard.
