Almost Italian – 1953 Hudson Jet

April 9, 2015

Looking for something from the immediate post-war period, with its we’re-on-a-postwar-budget trim styling, and its hey-look-I-have-integrated-fenders styling, but don’t want to go with the obvious Big-Three choices? Well, back in the early 1950s, there were still a decent number of smaller American manufacturers trying to keep going. And while senior Hudsons get the most attention for their upside-down bathtub styling and Twin-H power, the Jet has an interesting story of its own. Check out this 1953 Hudson Jet for sale for $2400 in Eugene, OR.

RustyButTrusty On The Street – 2013 Melee Sendoff

September 7, 2013

Okay, it’s going to be hard to lie about this, because even in San Francisco you won’t ordinarily see a Peugeot 203 and a Hudson Hornet within spitting distance of each other. Although the other day, a Citroen H-van and a McLaren MP4-12C were going the other direction on 101 within a few minutes of each other… Anyway, car events can be a great family outing. And such was the case with the Melee sendoff – even if the RustyButTrusty Alfas are too new to qualify, and the BMW is likely too common, there’s no restriction on who attends the sendoff or what car brings you there.
