What makes it a Hornet? Could it be Wasp or Commodore? Year? - maybe 1952?

1951 Hudson ( by large rectangular turning lights , those of 1952 cars were smaller, rounder and more integrated in the upper grille bar). In the absence of further details it could be a Hornet , a Commodore or a Super Custom. 1951 Pacemakers had a different bumper with 4 overriders , no license plate frame and slightly more pointed turning light ends. The Wasp was introduced in 1952 to replace the Super Custom.

Comments are accurate except that not all '51 Pacemakers had 4 bumper guards.
The Burness album pictures a '51 with only 2.

Agree with fact it could be any of the other 3 series from this head-on view.

But it's convertible. This don't makes the difference?

Convertibles were offered in all of the '51 Hudson series, even the Pacemaker.

Was that the trim level between Hearing Aid and Dentures?

Right.
Next year, it was replaced by the Crutch and Custom Crutch.

"A pacemaker is a medical device which uses electrical impulses, delivered by electrodes contacting the heart muscles, to regulate the beating of the heart. The primary purpose of a pacemaker is to maintain an adequate heart rate, either because the heart's native pacemaker is not fast enough, or there is a block in the heart's electrical conduction system" (wiki). Young people have spikey haircuts and body piercings instead. Sometimes interesting how a word or phrase has changed its appeal for expressing something dynamic 50+ years ago to a totally different image now - see also the Hillman Minx "Gay Look" of mid-fifties.

Well, my old dictionary still translate "gay" as "happy". :p But I can't remember if anyone use it in this way.

Other types of name that are no longer fashionable:
- aggressive (Hunter, Avenger, Charger, Challenger, Interceptor, Vanguard, Maverick, Valiant etc),
- military ranks (the Commodore-Kapitan-Admiral-Diplomat discussion the other day, Ensign),
- animals and birds (Snipe, Hawk, Kestrel, Chamois, Fox, Greyhound, Leopard, Tiger, Mustang, Pinto, Panther, Robin etc - strangely even including some pests like Hornet and Wasp),
- weapons (Rapier, Stiletto, Scimitar, Spitfire, Corvette),
- and finally the pixie family (Imp, Sprite, Elf - and somewhere close but totally unthinkable today would be Midget).
Now all we get is combinations of numbers or made-up words with no meaning which are meant to sound interesting but don't.

The modern car-names were created by computer-programmes. The first made this way, was "Vectra".

Yesterday, at a short shopping-run to IKEA (5:30 min from entry to payment. Impossible with female companion), I've noticed something, named "Lustfik"
Errr, maybe not the best idea for Germany. "Lust" has an identical meaning in English and the second part, phonetic, is: http://www.dict.cc/?s=fick :whistle:

I am surprised that they can get away with something like that. Re car names - yes things ain't what they used to be.

Since the hood ornament appears to lack the triangle topper, will list as Super pending any better shot.
