During World War II people as well as companies really did support the troops and the war effort in more than just words.  In fact U.S. automobile manufacturers stopped production of civilian cars in order to produce armaments during the war.  On this day August 30, 1945 the first post war Hudson, a pale green Super Six coupe rolled off the assembly line.  The car above is neither a 1945 or pale green but it is one fine piece of machinery, a 1946 coupe and the Hudson below is a 1937 Custom Eight.
