    Friend of mine picked up a Hudson Hornet. Big 6 is pretty cool.

    Twin-H power in a big 6 and step-down bodies briefly helped the Hudson reputation, but they could not compete like in their heyday.

    The Wasp and Jet didn't take and lost money for the company.
    I liked the styling. My dad looked at them, but they were just another big car to him. He bought a Cranbrook instead.

    Biggest thing the Twin-H power did was win races. Since most NASCAR tracks were short and on dirt (or sand at Daytona) the brute low end torque of the 308 ci Hudson coupled with it's relatively low center of gravity made it the dominant car, it's only real challenger was the Olds 303 ci Rocket V8 which could drive away from the Hudsons at Darlington and on the A1A part of Daytona.
