    There were several Hudson Bar and Grille locations here in SoCal back in the '80's or about that had the front end of a Hudson on the wall. Apparently didn't catch on because I'm not aware of any still in business.

    No pics, but I know of a few:

    I-65 North in Birmingham, Al--KW semi tractor on pole --Star Trucks and parts, used semi trucks and wrecking yard.

    I-10 East, Baytown TX--remains of a BMW Isseta on roof of a building, think it might have been a wrecking yard at some point.

    I-59 South, Hattiesburg, MS-- INSIDE hanging from the ceiling AD series pickup , small convenience / truck fuel stop, right beside a Krystal restaurant.
     
  7. In 1975 I went to California, and being a Willys fan, a friend took me to a junkyard / salvage yard that had a 1933 Willys sedan up on a pole. It wasn't for sale. Does anyone remember seeing the Willys ? I can't remember what town it was in.

    Don't know if it would still be there or not but years ago I was headed north on route 49 in Mississippi somewhere around Hattiesburg and there was a 40 half ton on top of a pole in front of a sales barn/auction house. Should have stopped and made them an offer.

    I haven't been by this for a while but a well known landmark on the way to the Central Oregon Coast is this Studebaker in a tree near the town of Willamina.

    Didn't pay any attention to where it was.
    So its a restaurant - didn't know that either.

    That's a long way to go for us country folk.

  14. Hmmm...Yeah. I guess that's not really self-evident from the picture I posted, is it? o_O

    Here's a link if anybody wants to take a tour... http://vinsettagarage.com/

    I can recommend the Lamburger, but next time I've gotta try the Rock & Rye ice cream! :D

  17. We ate at this dinner today. It had this Cobra hanging over the bar. Not a pole, but kind of cool just the same. Ron... 003.jpg 004.jpg
