The "Fabulous Hudson Hornet" is among the cars on display at "Glory Road" in the NASCAR hall of fame, which opened today in Charlotte.
I took the picture above on a tour through the NASCAR hall of fame. It's not a very good picture, but it's a great car. There are a lot of snapshot-worthy moments in the hall, and as I wrote in my review of the place last week, it will absolutely dazzle you (at least the first time). I'm sure it's doing exactly that today to the hundreds of people passing through the doors.
The Hudson Hornet gained a new legion of followers in the 2006 animated movie "Cars," in which Paul Newman voices the character of "Doc Hudson," who turns out to be the Hudson Hornet himself.
