One Message About, and Another From, Our Sponsors...


Although he's not been a DLCV member for several years, the name Bernie Jacobson will be familiar to those of us who stay up-to-date with the local old car scene by belonging to other clubs or reading magazines like Restored Cars. He had a pre-war Fifteen, previously owned by John Caddy, but decided it was too far gone to restore and it went up to `Fifteen Heaven' at Roy Shelton's place. Bernie is a Lagonda enthusiast, but regularly embarks on ambitious restoration projects on other makes. Notably, a superb restoration of an American Dixie Flyer and, currently, past the point of no return with a 1923 Packard `Single Six', the progress on which is being reported on in the VDC Vintage Driver magazine. This also promises to be a top-class restoration.


DLCV members should be aware that Bernie engaged Aaron Eckhardt at Sleeping Classics to work on the Dixie Flyer and was so impressed with the `resurrection' of the fenders and other panels that he entrusted Aaron with the panel work on the Packard. I, too, have had DB 18 panel work superbly restored at Sleeping Classics.


As you all know, Aaron Eckhardt supports our club by advertising in this Journal, and Bernie Jacobson's virtual recommendation should encourage us to check with Aaron about prospective panel work on your Daimler, Lanchester, or BSA.
