Two for One

Think the owner will notice if I take one out for a spin?

Laurie said...

looks like Nash design to me. 1949 50? ish? Not sure, haven't ever seen one in person and don't have time to research this afternoon.

puuuuurty tho!

I'd take the green one, less likely to be pulled over, right? ;-)

Bet it does purr too.

How about it DB, get us out of the pokey for taking them for a spin???? They ARE too pretty to be just, you know, SITTING THERE, asking to be driven!!!

wv: titsb resserves...makes me wonder what the tits"a" had in resserves!

I'm guessing they're Hudsons, but I'm not sure. I don't think I'll help you get out of the pokey, because I'll be busy driving one and trying to avoid getting caught myself. A couple of beautiful classics.

Mister Earl said...

Good call, Dan. They are Hudsons, approximately 1950.
Just confirmed it with a Google search. Definitely not Nashes. My grandfather had a Nash in the early 50s. Had its own distinct look.

Mister Earl said...

A 1950 Nash Ambassador looked like a bumper car at an amusement park!

dbdubya said...

They look like the first car driven by Morgan Freeman in Driving Miss Daisy. That was a '49 Hudson I believe.

Mister Earl said...

Yes, it was a 1949 Hudson Commodore in the movie. It didn't have that triangle shape on the grill, however, which makes me think these are 1950. (There's a website with photos of all the cars used in Driving Miss Daisy.)

Mister Earl said...

Because of its high power to weight ratio, the Hudson Hornet dominated NASCAR from 1951-1954!

Laurie said...

I love you guys!!!

Michelle said...

It's so fun that we find out about these cars from the cool commenters here!

Laurie said...

Michelle, I definitely have the coolest commenters! :-) XOXO

Mister Earl said...

Awwwwww!

Jason said...

Gonna hafta fight me for that red one. Then I'll get charged with assault as well as grand theft auto. Damn.

Jason said...

I agree about cool commenters here. I lurk every day. ;)

Sally said...

I' am joining in this fight! Either one will do for me!!
