Its not quite a P100 but its closer than you might think.
There is still the issue of the "lumpy" looking trim that is done with BMF and there is not as many "gee whiz" features as the Thunderbolt but the detail is still very, very nice!
The interior and engine are first class as is the paint.

For the money that you can pick these up for you can't go wrong! :happy

Jeff,

When I was drooling over the HUG, I remember asking you about the Highway 61 models. You told me they had some great subject matter, you didn't lie did you.

Very nice indeed :nicejob

Hi New Guy and welcome to the forum :cheers

The Hudson is a 1953 and is availabe in 4 different racing versions and numerous street versions.

I think the retail price is around $70 but I will bet if you looked around a bit you wouldn't have to pay much more than $40 or so

Congrats Jeff :cheers That is a pretty neat looking car!

I noticed the seatbelts and am surprised they were using them back then; it was very rare at that time. Seatbelts didn't come into broad racing use until the mid- to late '50s because many thought they would be safer being thrown from the car!

Very cool model, Jeff! I don't know what the other liveries are, but I think you made a good choice - that's a great color combination for the car

Anyone that has an interest in these should probably look around for a deal, they are out there. As Dr.Jeff mentioned, they are very nicely done and are a great bargain when you pay the "street price" fo them.

Bob, I was just reading a book about the old days of stock car racing and it seems that once in a while the driver would instal some sort of seatbelt, usually out of an airplane.
