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
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.
