It's a Hudson, and it's a big ol' boat for sure. Must be some kind of limo.
I was in Nam in 69 and we never got the memo on that one falling.

what a car (and girl for sure), can anybody tell more about make, model and the front bumper?
My first car. 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger. Air Shocks, Rocket slot wheels...and a big humpin' 225 C.I. slant six...
Very interesting story about a customizer of sorts...
That Mercury Pickup is the "nuts": !!!!
Looks like Rhode Island Ave, N.E. in the District of Columbia.
I'm digging that '57 Merchero in front of and behind it! Where is it now?
Saw Gene with Trigger OOOOPS Sorry Gene correction.....Champion (Trigger was Roy Rogers ride) when I was maybe 8 or 9 at our downtown arena in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
A fascinating story, well told.
Champion, the Wonder Horse...
I had this year in a coupe a few years back, I still miss it. Great pic
Trigger was Roy Rogers' horse...
Yup, you guys are confusing me. I think gene Autry's horse was Coco.

The car is a 1930 or 1931 Buick. The girl is sitting on the radiator cap which might have told us the difference. There was a story about those bumpers on theoldmotor.com not too long ago.
I think Gene Autry's horse was "Champion". The kiddie ride was named after it...
Let me tell ya, it was a bitch getting in and out of those cars parked like that. I did it a few times. I remember driving around San Francisco, and walking too, when you could still see neat old cars sitting on the streets. Oakland too. I'm pretty sure the 36 Ford Cabriolet that Brizio did, and painted purple, some 25 or 30 years ago, use to sit in the street in front of Lake Merritt in Oakland.

Taken from The Old Motor:
This charming photo taken in Brazil, shows us Miss J. F., posing on top of the radiator and hood of a very sporty 1929 Buick Roadster. She is wearing a polka-dotted dress, high heels and an attractive hat, all in the fashion of the times. The Buick is equipped with a quite expensive accessory bumper…
