Charles has been interested in cars since his preschool days. He still owns the first 2 Packards he bought: a 1940 All Weather Cabriolet (the last "town car" in Columbus, OH, purchased in 1955, and a 1937 Twelve 2-4 Coupe, purchased from a used car lot in 1956 for $100. He owns a number of other rare Packards and has actively participated in many car clubs and museum boards for years, and has been a member of the Packard Motor Car Foundation since its inception. His involvement in the Foundation brings together 2 of his major interests, historic preservation and the Packard Company and its products.
