Built this web site.
Found other web sites related to automobile restoration, and Essex
specifications for my car from the Hudson Reference Sheet no. 34
(January 1929) provided by Alex Burr.
Purchased original Essex Instruction Manuals from eBay for 1928 series 1,
and 1929 series 2 Essex. Still looking for a manual for the 1929 Series 1.
Started documenting missing parts.
Started developing local contacts with automotive restorers, and people
with expertise in antique autos.
