POTD: 1952 Hudson Hornet

From 2015 08 11 Manitou Springs

Today's photo-of-the-day is from the Garden of the Gods, a public park and National Natural Landmark located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Naturally, the photo includes a car built for the gods, a 1952 Hudson Hornet four-door sedan. The editors of Consumer Guide praise the car, saying, "The Hornet proved near-invincible in stock-car racing." To me, the Hudson seems right at home in the vacation snapshot, given that my only previous visit to the Garden of the Gods was in the late 1950s, when many similar vintage cars filled the park.

I heard from the owner of the car: "Mark, thank you for posting the photo of the Hudson Hornet this past December. I drove the car from Illinois to California in 1975, to Seattle in 1989, last year to Colorado Springs, and next year 7B164770 is going to San Diego, if everything goes well. These old Hornets have legs."
