1955 Hudson, by Citroen

What if another manufacturer had created their own version of 1955 Hudson?

By Frank Peiler

Anybody who knows a little something about automotive history knows that Hudson merged with Nash in 1954 to form American Motors.  As a result, AMC had to come up with a new Hudson in record time to make the 1955 model year.  The design department at Nash did a very good job transforming the Ambassador/Statesman into a  new Hudson.  The new car didn’t look much like a Hudson, and it certainly didn’t handle at all like previous “step-down” Hudsons, but the design was a refreshing change from the old and tired car.  However, what would the 1955 Hudson look like had the merger been between General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Chrysler Corporation, or the newly merged Studebaker/Packard?

Repair Bill

Does it make sense to purchase an extended warranty to cover expenses like this?

By Tim Healey

You’ve just picked out your new car. You’ve decided on the options and the color, and now you’re sitting in the finance office while the dealership’s porters prep it for delivery. The finance manager is trying to sell you things like rustproofing, VIN-number window etching, and Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP) insurance, and now he or she has thrown another one at you: the extended warranty.
