The Adventure Begins

It was in the mid 1980’s that I first became interested in vintage cars and decided to buy one to restore.  At the time, this advert appeared in the New Zealand Herald, a national newspaper.

Vintage Hudson Super Six, 1928, partly dismantled,

good tyres, spare parts, literature, original papers, 

best offer around $1500 Ph....  a Taupo number

(which is a two hour drive from where I live in Hamilton)

So, I went to have a look at it - and I liked what I saw.  It was a big, strong and  powerful American car that was still original and basically all there if not all together (the then owner had started to restore it and had removed some body panels).

It occurred to me even then that it would make a great wedding car when restored. 

But I also knew that it was going to take a lot of work and money to do this.

So I offered him $1000, which he accepted.  At the time, I actually knew nothing about Hudson cars.  It was only in the months that followed that I learned that they were a very well made and sought after car in their time and that I’d stumbled on a great buy.  On 17 November 1985, I trailered my purchase back to Hamilton.
