I really don't have anything to add — a great story, a beautiful car, and quite the character, by the sounds of it!
The '40 Buick convertible in this event doesn't look too much different to me than the '48.
nice little side story about how her friends got her an exact duplicate key created (just in case she lost the only original one she had)
All these years Ms. Dunning has kept her Packard’s original key with its elaborate crest. For her recent birthday, some friends duplicated the prized key.
“I was thrilled to death to have another one,” she said. “If I had ever lost the one I had, the locksmith would be out here for a week, and I still would not have that crest,” she said.
