What does this photo of an Essex panel truck, a Hudson pick up truck and the 1916 Hudson race car with Ralph Mulford have in common? Well, several things.

They represent the diversity of a legendary automaker that fans and aficionados will be celebrating at a wide array of centennial celebrations in 2009.
They are also a sneak peak at what readers will discover in the March issue of Cars & Parts, a special issue celebrating 100 hundred years of Hudson. My contribution will be two features, one profiling the legend that is the first generation Super Six and another that introduces readers to the array of “other” products and vehicles built by Hudson.
In future postings I will keep you updated on events and celebrations that will commemorate this historic centennial.
