Hudson. original and not on the road since 58' if you can see the tab. i didn't know they even tab'd em back then.:lol3

was damn near pristene. other than the surface patina..
some tires and a tune up and i bet it runs. even the interior (I hear from my boss) was like new just dusty.:huh and it needs a new ragtop.

damn. how come I never find something like this. :baldy

I love barn finds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

maybe it's the kid in me hoping to find the minibike for $5 leaned against a tree somewhere, but I do love barn finds and other nifty discoveries.

Yep. I'd hit the brakes so hard my eyeballs would bulge. I'd be turned around and figuring out a begathon strategy for the money. "Yes, we've got room for it."

I think that's part of the joy. :lol3
