Roadtreking: 1917 Packard Motorhome in Oklahoma

From the bloggers at Roadtreking.

On our trip along historic U.S. Route 66, we are finding wonderful scenes and historical places through Missouri, Kansas (13 miles of it), and now Oklahoma. One of the unexpected wonders is the Afton Station & Packard Collection on old 66 just south of Exit 312 on I-44.

In a restored DX service station and Official Packard Service garage we found an extremely fine collection of vintage automobiles, with about one dozen Packards fully restored.  The main building houses the “newer” cars with a number of 1950s Packards and a Kaiser among others.  The rear building houses some 1930s and earlier cars. The surprise vehicle is a 1917 Packard Motorhome.

David Kane and Laurel Kane moved their car collection from Connecticut and retired to Afton along Route 66. They restored the former gas station to house their car collection. The Packard Motorhome is in the building behind the main building.
