From the beginning...

This is the first of our blogs to get you all caught up on our project.

Where to begin? Does it begin in about 1970, when Russell saw his first Hudson?

Does it begin in 1984, when he wanted to BUY his first one?

Maybe it starts in the fall of 2005 just before we finally did buy our first Hudson, a 1952 Hudson Hornet Sedan. That's when Russell discovered Hudson made a convertible.

Or does it begin in September 2006, when we began buying the pieces that will someday become our newest Hudson, a 1952 Hudson Hornet Convertible? We'll start there, I guess.

For some background, here's a story that went into the White Triangle News (the magazine of the International Hudson-Essex-Terraplane Club) about our project. Click on images for a bigger view.

It is amazing what a bit of knowledge and a lot of persistance can accomplish.
Having seen a couple of Dave Solons efforts, and Paul Schusters "Baby" I have no doubt that this convert will soon join her sisters on the road again.
Great job, Russell, and the blog is great too. I'm looking fwd to a trip to Texas, sometime in the near future, to see this one.
