1951 Hudson Hornet Doc Hudson Pit Crew Member Fabulous Hudson Hornet Disney Pixar Cars Movie Diecast Scale 1:55 by Mattel


Los autos antiguos tienen algo de lo que, casi sin excepción, carecen los autos recientes: personalidad. Uno puede distinguir bastante fácil un vehículo de una marca y modelo particular, si este pertenece a un año cualquiera entre 1900 y 1970. 

Pero después de eso, me atrevo a decir que los autos y sus marcas correspondientes, perdieron su carácter y originalidad, con muy pocos ejemplos rescatables, todo como consecuencia de la globalización.

Creo que Cars la película, además de ser entretenida, logró darle literalmente personalidad a vehículos recientes, aunque me temo que la tarea fue más sencilla con los autos clásicos, pues ellos son una prodigalidad de estilo y singularidad. 


Nuestro invitado para hoy, también conocido como Doc Hudson, está basado en un coupé Hudson Hornet fabricado entre 1951 y 1954 y es, en la vida real, un auto hermoso e imponente, que en esta versión en particular, ganó competencias de la NASCAR durante los años de su producción y fue imbatible.

He quedado encantado con los diecasts creados por Mattel para este filme de Disney Pixar. La calidad en sus detalles, trabajo de pintura, materiales y tampografiado es realmente satisfactoria y su tamaño es perfecto para el poco espacio para exhibición con el que cuento. 


Mattel ya tiene un lugar en mi corazón de juguete =PPPPP...

ENGLISH

The old cars have something that, almost without exception, doesn’t have the recent cars: personality. One can quite easily distinguish a vehicle of a particular brand or model, if it belongs to any year between 1900 and 1970. 

But after that, I dare to say that cars and their respective brands, lost their character and originality, with very few salvageable examples, mainly as a result of globalization.

I think that Cars the movie, besides of being entertaining, it managed to give personality literally to recent vehicles, but I’m afraid that the task was easier with classic cars, because they are a prodigality of style and uniqueness. 


Our guest for today, also known as Doc Hudson, is based on a Hudson Hornet coupe made between 1951 and 1954 and is, in real life, a beautiful and imposing car, which in this particular version, won the NASCAR championship during the years of its production and was unbeatable.

I’ve been delighted with the diecast created by Mattel for this Disney Pixar film. The quality in detail, paint job, materials and pad printing job is really satisfactory, and its size is perfect for the small size of my "exhibition room". 


Mattel already has a place in my toy heart =PPPPP...
