By Hook or by Hudson

Christchurch car enthusiasts Tony and Lynnette Mallard are touring the United States in a 1934 Hudson making their way toward the Detroit suburb of Pontiac and the 100th anniversary celebration of the Hudson Motor Company in mid-July. Tony Mallard purchased his Hudson for $20 in 1962 and had the vehicle operational by 1968 when he and Lynette married. Their return journey will include a swing up into Canada, then back down to Montana to see Glacier National Park before their journey home on August 22. Driving a 1934 Hudson over 4,000 miles provides an opportunity for the couple to get a clear picture of what America is really like. Tony remarked, “Your national media gives the rest of the world a very negative view – we see and hear all of the bad. But we’re finding it very different. We’ve been made to feel so welcome everywhere and we are so impressed with the way we’ve been treated in every place we’ve visited.”
