Concilio’s Classic Coaches

Written By Proud Owner & Driver Trey Concilio 

In its time, the 1947 Packard Custom Super Clipper was the swiftest and most powerful production motorcar In the world. Unequalled by any except Rolls Royce, this all-American Packard represented a premier level of excellence. In early 1947 at Detroit, Michigan the Packard Motor Car Company (1899-1956) built the engine, running gear and chassis of the motorcar you are viewing. Based upon Howard A. Darrin’s revolutionary “Clipper” design, the Henny Motor Company manufactured Its limited production body In Freeport, Illinois. Many critics and historians consider this senior 21st Series Packard to be a classic work of automotive art. This Packard is  one of only 1300 built,  less than a hundred are left running in the world. This car has been in our family since 1968 and is completely original with exception of exterior paint and chrome. Fun fact: The space between the front and back seat is so large that at one time an old school square port-a-crib was setup for my brother or I to sleep as we drove.

 This car,  a 1967 yellow Chrysler Imperial or black Hummer are for hire with a chauffeur for your next event. Contact Trey Concilio at 254/761-9191.

To see more of the Packard in action watch Mindy & Simon’s (Wedding Theatre) video blog posted a few months back, the car pulling into our drive is spectacular!

At least 350 children, their parents and grandparents attended Sunday, April 17’s Easter Parade of Fun. Held on the grounds of Earle-Harrison House & Pape Gardens,  this was our first collaborative spring fundraising event held to support local children’s organizations. 2011 & 2012 will benefit Talitha Koum (www.talithakoum.org). Volunteers from Talitha Koum, Junior League, Rotary Club, Artfest and other area organizations headed by a TK committee staged an Easter Egg Roll fashioned after the annual White House event, along with a scavenger hunt and several egg hunts. Storytellers, a balloon artist, a petting zoo, a craft booth and other activities rounded out a full afternoon schedule. Lu Billings and Marie Cobbs served lemonade and cookies that was provided by caterer Patti’s Kitchen. For more than twenty years Lu and Marie have served thousands of cups of lemonade at various EHHPG garden events – two of the many active Waco volunteers who make events such as this one successful and memorable.
