The wood tower...

...behind it is much more interesting. I am guessing that it is radio-related in some way.

Tires

Wow! Look at the tread pattern on those suckers. Probably influenced by tentacles of an octopus. No need to use the horn --- folks could hear the Hudson coming from a block away.

Surprising condition

The car is surprisingly dirty for a photo shoot. Looks like they just drove it all the way from San Jose.

Even Then

Hudson made a car that looked like it could go anywhere.

Guaranteed not to skid

You need Pennsylvania Oilproof Vacuum Cup Tires.
