Nice thread.
Ek kyk ook baie na die ou wrakke en dan dink ek aan elkeen se storie, die dag toe die sale's man die kar verkoop het, die dag toe die eienaar by die huis kom spog het met sy nuwe kar, al die gelukige dae wat saam met die kar gegaan het en dan ook die hartseer. So het elke ou wrak seker maar sy eie storie.

Die wrak lê in die Moordenaars Karoo.

Same wreck as Flatout, different angle.  Took a trip with my two cousins after our uncle passed away, last pic is a beer left for him.  BTW the farm where this car stands has 3/4 campsites, awesome star gazing especially after a few Redhearts.....

EISH!!! You're right Buzz... it is a Cortina. What threw me was the square headlight frames, but I didn't look further than that.

The Cortina's indicators were in the front edge of the mudguard, but the Firenza's were under the bumper  :-[

Or a Ranger. Possibly also old Cortina

+1 on the Ranger

the cortina 3 has those little round edges in the front bumpers.

SHIT  ???

Can't remember what it was, I don't think it was a cortina.

The rear 3/4 of the cortina had that curve like on buzzlightyears pic.

I absolutely love the lines of this Hudson. Even a bit different for its time when it was new. Like today you get the Merc CLS range, Audi A7, or the Aston Martine Rapide or Porsche Panamera. Sort of four door coupe style.

Yip, I tried to do justice with the photo,s, but in the flesh, even though it is a rusted shell, it is one very impressive car, massive actually, with beautiful lines.

The Hudson Hornet was a different model that came later, '53 or'54 I think, and absolutely trashed the opposition (Ford, Chev etc) at the race track, apparently the Hudson's had a "step down" body and chassis (not entirely sure what that means) which lowered their centre of gravity and gave them far superior handling.

Bring It On..

From what I could tell the Farmer made that rock bed just for the car, I'm glad he had the foresight to share it with us and not leave it rusting in the veld where no one can see it.

I used a little app called "colorsplash" on my iPhone to grey out the background, pretty sure if you have any smart phone you will find a similar app you could download.
Or Photoshop.

Nope... Commodore.

Did my research thoroughly, bonnet and grill the give aways, '49 different to'48 &'50. Hornet only came out in '52, I think.

Still, the hornet was an absolutely fantastic car for it's day

No, I  think its a 1942 Chev Fleetline. It looks like all the big 'flat' panels have been cut off. Look at the front door and bonnet too. Probably flatened out and form a huts roof somewhere close by.

Die ou lorrie le vandag nog naby Silvia Bay, Saddle Hill, waar sy gebreek het en net daar gelos is. Haar naam is Suzy.
Foto 1 is geneem toe sy nog diens gedoen het in die 50's
Foto 2 het ek geneem so paar jaar gelede toe ons die duine trip gedoen het
