My Classic Car: Danny’s Dad’s Hudson Hornet

My Classic Car: Danny’s Dad’s Hudson Hornet

The year was approximately 1952. We were living in Missouri. I can remember sitting in the front seat, looking out the side window. I could just barely see over the window sill.

The year was approximately 1952. We were living in Missouri. I can remember sitting in the front seat, looking out the side window. I could just barely see over the window sill. I probably looked like Killroy. To me, at the time, it was a big car.

I can still remember the smell of the mohair when I get around old cars today.

That is my dad washing the Hudson. He always said that it was the best car he ever owned.

I have no idea what I have in my hands but I think we are at a beach on the Meramec River just out of St Louis.

I’m also not sure about the model year of the Hudson.
