Default 1950 Hudson Coupe

Almost completely restored Super8 model...one of only 3 remaining in California. Spotted it at a local donut store parking lot.

Lovely Hudson. Lot's of dealer options I see on this car. We have a couple in the city, one with the NASCAR inspired Twin H Power...dual carb version of the Fabulous Hudson flathead inline, 308 cube six.

My father, back in the early '50's made, for me, a to scale Esso service station with a showroom. In the showroom he had two 1/18th scale Hudson Hornets...like the subject.

Being a graphic artist for too long to count I appreciate a nicely executed close cropping job. Flawless. This is one of my favorite shots of your auto pics.

gorgeous again Walter. i really love the perspective in the first one, but I like seeing the side-view to appreciate the car's form! like the simple classy blackout background.

Are those 4 diagonal black lines a reflection of powerlines overhead? If so they should be easy to remove.

You would probably be surprised how well it handles for a car approaching 60 years...those Hudson's were low to the ground and renowned for their handling back then.
