1954 Hudson Hornet find

If you can get that car buy it now. I used to mechanic for a Stock Car racer (now NASCAR) from Texas. He raced nothing but the Hudson cars. Even when the GM, Ford and Chrysler V8's made their appearance that Hudson ate them in the curves and took home a trophy. Junior Johnson was ready to get into a Hudson when the company collapsed. I saw them as Highway Patrol pursuit cars in Montana, Colorado and northern New Mexico. The idea was to chase the violator until he went too fast to negotiate the curves and eventually rolled the car. Those Hudson's I saw just wouldn't usually roll over. They were very stable in the track banked curves.
