The Packard Patents – A Graveyard of Automotive Designs From the Past: We stumbled into a large number of Packard patents including a couple for overhead cam designs conceived during the teens and early twenties when Packard was actively developing its aircraft and racing engines. It is unlikely these concepts ever made it to the race track but they and many other Packard patents you can link to are quite interesting. In the post we also have a link to an excellent article by Gary Doyle covering Packard's and Ralph DePalma involment in racing at the time on The Old Motor.
