1950 Hudson Commodore

This 1950 Hudson was my favorite car of the 2014 Mecum auction here in Indianapolis. I love step-down Hudsons anyway, and this one was a peach.

Have I ever mentioned that when I was in middle school I wrote short stories? I don’t have any of them anymore, and I’m sure none of them were any good. The only one I remember at all was the one where I had the main character drive a step-down Hudson.

    You disappoint, Jim. Any author from South Bend with an ounce of hometown pride would have had his protagonist driving a Studebaker.

      I loved the step-down Hudson so much I’d pass my hometown automobile by!

    Nice detail again
    I’m impressed, step down Hudsons were not on my radar in middle school

      I’d only ever seen them in photographs, but I was mad for them.

    Definitely cool cars. I like the ’51-’53 models with the updated grill the best.

      Yes, that grille gave the classic look to be sure.
