My wife and her sister wanted to go to Shipshewana, IN to do some shopping.
 This is an Amish area in northeastern IN.
There was a Hudson museum in the town and I thought "How many Hudson's have the Amish owned?
Boy was I in for a surprise! It is an outstanding Museum.
The Hostetler Collection. Almost one of every year built.
From The first Hudson's a 1909 Model 20 
 A 1911 model 33 Speedster
 A 1917 race car
 1927 Firetruck
Hudson tried everything
 1928 Town Car. A little more upscale.
 A 1929 Mail truck. A little more utilitarian.
 A 1936 Rumble seat convertible Series 65. A little too yellow.
Yes Hudson raced NASCAR and won.
 Some of the cars were over restored but this one wasn't one of them.
A partial view of the collection

This 1928 Convertible tucked back in one corner just happened to be a winner of....

 It's class at the 2009 Pebble Beach!!!!!!
What a collection.

Ends of the Spectrem

On a recent trip I got this picture in Indiana.
Which provided an unusual comparisons of things that go.
At a winery in Ohio I parked next to this. A big difference in transportation vehicles.
This did have a dancing horse on it.
I also visited a Hudson Museum in the middle of Amish country and will show those next.
