January 17, 2013

For its This Car Matters movement, the Historic Vehicle Association is asking people to share their stories about special vehicles — ones that helped to shape their lives and communities, and our history and heritage. Check out the videos below, and if you haven’t yet shared your story, head on over to the This Car Matters page on our website to find out how you can participate.






Sophisticated Nash

1940 Nash Ambassador Eight Special Cabriolet, owned by Reggie Nash

This custom-built Nash was one of eleven created by the designer Count Alexis de Sakhnoffsky, and only two remain in use today.

British Refinement, Hudson Power

1937 Railton Four-Door Saloon Rippon Brothers Limousine, owned by Eldon Hostetler

This one-of-a-kind Railton with Hudson power has been exquisitely restored and exhibits an amazing set of unusual amenities.

Early Sports Car

1913 American Underslung Touring, owned by Harold Coker

The innovative design of this American Underslung created a lower center of gravity, allowing the car to handle better than other vehicles of its time.

    I love the passion these folks show for their cars. I have a 1969 Camaro Z-28 thatmight not be in the same class as some of these vehicles, but I am just as passionate about it.

    The 1940 Nash is one of the most fascinating cars I have ever seen. Reggie has done an excellent restoration and an informative presentation of his car. Well done!!!

    Reference the Nash Video. I attended the Harrah car museum sale in Reno in about 1984 and they sold a Nash exactly like the one in the video. So, with two remaining, if Reggie's Nash is not the one from Reno, is the other one he refers to the Reno Harrrahs car. Or is there a third? I recall the Reno one was black or dark blue. Just a comment, I don't need an answer.
