Hudson stood alone in their unique combination of styling and engineering.  The "step down" design made a big car on a reasonable sized chassis for American families.  It was a unique car, and all-American hero.  The Pontiac was a nice mainstream car, and had even better designs coming up.  Hudson is my choice.

I have to go with the Hudson with its unique styling and interesting power train.

The Hudson was an interesting car in this era with its step down styling and powerful 6 cyl. engine but I like the look of the Pontiac much more.  I choose Pontiac.

I love Hudson's!  In this instance though, I'm going with the PONTIAC.  If it had been the '50 model year for both cars, Hudson would have won out.  To my eyes the '50 through '52 Hudson's are pretty much stand alone beauties over any other car.

Pontiac for me. I love the GM sedanette body style and the period correct outside visor option.

Hudson for me. David H. said it well in his post.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

My vote is for the Pontiac. I've always liked the GM Streamliner aka sedanet fastback bodies, particularly the 1948 through 1952 renditions.  I think the style looks best on Cadillac.

 I picked the Hudson although the grill treatment on the '49 is not my favorite, but overall, it is still a fantastic car.

Tough call, going with the Hudson because it stands out in a crowd.
