One of the more noticeable vehicles on display was the Packard Royal Streamliner Roadster.

Owner Dave Niederst of Rocky River says the car has a 2,500 cubic inch engine supercharged, puts out 1,600 horsepower and takes 100 quarts of oil.

He says he looked forward to coming to the Packard Museum.

“I really love the idea that I was invited,” says Niederst. “The fact that it’s such a giant Packard engine. To be honest, I didn’t know there was a Packard Museum until they invited me. It’s the right place for it.”
