If Cars Could Talk – The Name is Hudson, and Racing History is Just the Beginning!

May 12, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join our friends Alan Gross, Exhibit Chair, & Linda Merkel, Executive Director, from the America on Wheels Museum, the newest member of the America’s Automotive Trust Family, for an exciting talk about the Museum’s exhibit “What’s in a Name”. The Exhibit features cars manufactured by the Hudson Motor Company and the Essex Motor Company between 1911 and 1957. Included are gems such as the 1953 Hudson Hornet 4-door sedan that was the first model ever to be featured in a NASCAR race!

Tune in for May’s If Cars Could Talk to meet our colleagues from the east coast and learn more about this celebrated marque!

This event will be presented via Zoom. Please use the link below to join the event.

There are many chapters to the story of the automobile. If cars could talk, they might just share stories we never imagined. Each month, our speaker will pick a car or automotive topic and offer a fascinating peek into its history. Join us on the second Tuesday of each month, and explore the story of cars with Museum curators, staff or local personalities.

If Cars Could Talk is FREE to the public. Pre-registration is required.
