Moving the Car

Over spring break, I was asked to come up to campus to help move the car that sits in Packard’s lobby. The car used to sit in the middle of the lobby basically behind a wall, so you didn’t really know it was there. There have been recent renovations taking place to revamp the lobby. Part of the plan was to build a new case for the beloved car. This case was to be made of the same glass used in the Popemobile and to have great security features. Well, the case has been made and the car has been placed inside of it! To remove it from the original case, it just had to be pushed down a ramp. Getting it in the new case wasn’t so easy due to the placement of the doors in the new case. We actually had to lift up the front end of the car and rotate it 90 degrees to get it in.

Michelle, one of the ladies who works in the deans office, got to steer the car while others pushed it.
