Both are nice but the clean shape of the Hudson gives it the edge.

I really like the lowered look of the Hudson Pacemaker. It was also a less bulky car than the Buick.

The Hudson is just a prettier car, the smoother look wins out over the Buick.

I agree with the sentiment that the Hudson just looks better.

Hudson for me, but it seems to have been a design that didn't merge into the excesses of the fifties like the Buick did.

The "Step-Down" Hudson design is a favorite of mine. For '51, it beats Buick for me. I'd have a much more difficult choice if John had compared '49s.

I just don't care for Buicks, but love Hudsons '48 to '54.

Damn!  This one is tough!  I'd take both in a heartbeat, but if I have to choose only one, the HUDSON gets the nod.

Buick is my pick between these convertibles as I never liked the thick windshield frame of the Hudson; especially with top down.  In sedan form I would pick Hudson by a nose.
