Terraplane of 1935
The Terraplane was a automobile brand build and sold by the Hudson Motor Car Company between 1932 and 1938. Our photo today for #MotorMonday is a shiny, new 1935 Terraplane sedan being proudly displayed by its owner. The Terraplane model was intended to be a durable but low-cost consumer offering, but was generally underpowered, so didn't achieve the market popularity Hudson had hoped for. The slogan Hudson used in its marketing was "On the sea that's aquaplaning, in the air that's aeroplaning, but on the land, in the traffic, on the hills, hot diggity dog, THAT'S TERRAPLANING"
