World's largest collection of Hudson, Essex, & Terraplane automobiles. Ranging from 1909 to 1956 the collection houses some of the finest examples of the autos produced by the Hudson Automobile Company. Both pristine restorations and pristinely preserved examples walk you through time while you reminisce about America's love affair with the automobile.

Great little collection. Didn't realize that Hudson was in business for so many years. Fun to see cars from the beginning to the end. Great information on each car. Take all the photos you want.
