Nice, but the red top is a little.... ummmm... Much... I guess he or she is getting in some last drives before winter settles in?

Are you referring to the little white glowing orb at the top of the power pole?

Yeah, it was way more impressive in person, the pic doesn't really do it justice.

Hudson spyied

Post by Wa11y on Sun Oct 28, 2012 6:58 pm

Spotted in the wild a few weeks ago. I would have never know what it was unless I'd seen the Hudson on F4. It looked just like the one on F4. When visiting Yipsalanti, MI last year I ate in a bar across from theYpsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum. While a Hudson is not as exciting as an exotic it was pretty cool since I've never seen a Hudson on the highway, let alone know what it is.

Man, I suck. I lived in Ypsilanti for three years and never went there. I guess the museum opened in 1995 and I moved away '96. Still. I'll make a point of checking it out next time we visit. My sister lives there. I'll have to ask if she's ever been.

Edit- I have seen Tucker's house and garage though.

Where is Tucker's house and garage? I saw two Tucker cars at the Gilmore Car Museum about 15 miles north of where I live. I'd never seen one of them up close until a few months ago along with a bunch of other cars I've only heard of.

I posted earlier about the Bentley Continental GT that parks in front of my house... Well, here is the pic... The owner is a really cool guy, who just married the our neighbor across the street (house with the webs on the bushes). That is the wedding we attended two weeks ago as a matter of fact... He's also got a Supercharged Escalade and a few other cars. He races in Lucas Oil series races and owns a custom race trailer business here in Middle TN... We actually chatted for a few hours back in August (my B-Day Party) about cars... I'll be getting a ride in that Bentley when we can find the time! Very Happy

Below is a link to a picture of his house. I might have lied (inadvertently) about his garage but there was a building, barn, garage or something that he was purported to have worked at. I found this, but can't remember if the place I saw was even in the same neighborhood- "There were also several barn style buildings behind the Tucker home and they were used as design and test annexes for Ypsilanti Machine." Reading up on him a little bit more I see now that none of his cars were actually produced in Ypsilanti, just plans.

Nothing too exotic, but still not something you see every day. Or at least I don't. Volvo Amazon, not sure what year:

My brother had one of these years ago. His was green with a tan leather interior. It was a special addition rally Volvo with big round rally lights on the front bumper, rally suspension and other stuff.

I wish I could have taken the photos this past weekend, bu I was driving and could not, but I've seen 2 Lotus Elise's and 1 Tesla Roadster in the past 5 days... If I see them again, I'll try and get a photo... I also saw a Lambo Gallardo getting on the interstate two weeks ago on my way into work. Unfortunately it was long gone by the time I was able to get on going the same way...

I will also get some better pics of my Mother-in-law's Nash Metropolitan. Here is one I took when she took my wife and two girls for a ride around the block in the spring of this year!

Yeah, I'd like to see the rest of that Metropolitan. That pink is too much! I'm thinking Barbie.

Sounds cool, Wally. I wanna drive one of those in Horizon.

Or Mary Kay. I see a Pink Mustang in the parking lot at work that is about that color and the lady who owns it actually put Barbie on the door in big letters. I can't take a picture due to the security at work.

whenever we go anywhere near whole foods, my dad makes sure he finds one of the fuel-efficient vehicle parking spaces for his SRT8... I always find that hilarious Very Happy

the tesla is a pretty cool car, I don't think I have ever seen one on the road...

I got caught behind a Hummer H1 and a Bentley continental yesterday. I didn't get a chance to get any pictures though...

I was leaving my grandparents house today and this happened to drive up behind me. Its a Maserati of some sort. This is the best picture I could manage to take without wrapping my moms car around a tree.



A few miles after i took this i went into the turning lane and as it passed me the thing sounded beastly
