This is a late 40's (I think) Hudson. I was told this is an actual California Highway Patrol car from back then, retired of course. :D
Looks like it still has it's old set of California exempt plates.

I thinks its owned by a real cop too. I spotted this one hanging out with the Metro units present at the Las Vegas 100th year anniversary. Seemed like everyone in the car was wearing a Metro uniform. :D

Speaking of Cops. If you look out your front window and see this bearing down on your front door,

You might then try to remember the ad you saw on this one. :D

Because you will surely be the topic of discussion by these folks.

ok - I'm posting these pictures of my '68 Camaro that was my pride and joy for 8 yrs... sure wish I still had it... it would be worth a small fortune now. The pictures aren't great, are old and so, are not "up to parr with the other pics here. I'm just sharing the car photos :)

It had a 325 V8 small block and was quite the "rod" :D

Wish I had the equipment I have now so I could've taken better pictures... well, I suppose I've also grown as a photography since then too ;-)

Hey Cindy, Yeah, That's a "SWEET" little 68. :D The 62 Impala sitting in front of it in your third image looks interesting as well. ;-)

Thanks Bruce... it really was a fun car... but I moved out of state and had a brand new car. After about 8 months, the next spring, I pulled it out of storage and, even tho I really didn't want to, I put it up for sale. A guy saw it and fell in love with it. He got financing and bought it for $3,500 (I paid $1,100 and put time and $$ fixing it up - doing some of the work myself ;-) ). SO cheap now looking back. I wish I'd known that there would've been the kind of payoff that's going on now. Still, I had alot of sentimental feelings about the car too...

Sad thing is, I heard but didn't actually see, my beautiful rod got sold to someone else and it became a rusted old beater... it makes me so sad. I worked so hard to keep it nice and stored every winter... it was literally driven the first part of it's life, by a little old lady who drove it to church :) and it ended up the last part of it's life, a beater...

Ok, now I'm depressed :( . I'm one of those people who get really attached to things and I'm sad it had to suffer...

Cindy :)
