Some of them were sold by Hudson. I have seen one with a Hudson nameplate on the firewall.

That looks like the one that used to run around the Phoenix area a few years back. Just barely enough room in between the tires for a third member and a couple of shocks. It must be some kind of a wild ride.

probably not the same car .... but I've seen similar for years.

At various times, I've seen 'lil black Nash Metros with every thing from blown SBC, BBC - this is the first one with a BBF.

I have yet to see a video of one under power, making a B T T W fullon run. Talk about your squrrily rides - I think even 'old timer, Wild Willy would pass on flooring one of these thru the 14 mile.

Like it or not...death takes its tax...always!

There is a guy here in town that had one a few year ago, with headers and engine plates for a Big block ford but he didn't have it finished at the time I saw it. I don't know if he still has it.
