Neighboring Rival


Okay, full disclosure: I snuck just across the border into Pasadena to take this photo. (I couldn't resist.)

Straight out of futuristic movie from the 40's. If I were to name it, it would be "The Rocketeer." Love the black/red combination. Fab find!!

Nice shot! It's a Hudson Commodore coupe, but I don't know the marque well enough to determine the year exactly, but most likely the 1948 or 1949 model.

You're forgiven, Laurie. It's a different model, but when I first saw it I immediately thought of the first car used in "Driving Miss Dasiy," a '49 Hudson.

Well darn...can't blame you a'tall for sneaking over the border for this one!!!

That is an absolute gem of a car! I'd die to ride in it or drive it!

I wouldn't have resisted, either. That is a beauty. It's all the Dena, after all.
