ID 271 is the Hudson Hornet probably a pre-1954 model.

Right Sajo, It is indeed a 1952-1953 Hudson Hornet looking at the body style and its length and as Moralfibre has described it the Racing Legend. The Hornet was virtually invincible from 1951-54 in Stock Car Racing using the old "L" Head Six of 5047cc There is very little difference between the Hornet [with a more powerful straight 6 or 8 (from 52 onwards only the Hornet could be got in an 8 cyl form) than the Commodore] and the smaller 6 Cylinder PaceMaker. The difference was in the engine power and size, body length (i think) and some chrome and accessories which were provided on the upmarket Hornet as standard but were a paid option on the Hornet. This is definately not the Commodore as the Commodore was a stripped down version of the Two. Looking at the angle at which the car is standing, and its length it does look like the Hornet. My guess is its a 52-53. Not 51 as the grille and body were different and definately not 54 as in this year Hudson merged with Nash to form American motors and the styling drastically changed.
There is a 1953 Pacaemaker which is owned by a dear friend and clicked by Iraghava in the link below. It is parked next to his 1934 Buick which appeared in the Happy Dent ad as Karlosdeville has pointed out. This Pacemaker is a six cylinder

The 51 Hudson lineup also featured the famous "Step Down" design construction, where the chassis wrapped around the car, making it low slung, sleek and stylish, besides easing ingress and egress. It was what they called a "monobilt" body and frame.

This is the 51





Heres the 52





and this is the 53. 1954 marked a radical design change.

The 2nd one is the Sonata Embera. Not sure about the first one but it could be the new accord.
