The gateway to the Hudson Essex Terraplane Historical Society's Doc Hudson Project

Fabulous Hudson Hornet

The "Fabulous Hudson Hornet" Depending on your age, it conjures up an image of a fast, aggressive machine tearing through the sand at Daytona Beach, leaving all competitors choking in the dust. The younger crowd will think of a gruff cartoon character who ends up acting as a father figure to a hot shot kid who has lost his way in life. Most of the younger set have no idea that the "Fabulous Hudson Hornet" is real. Those stock car records mentioned in the movie are also real and still stand today. 27 wins out of 34 starts in 1952 is a record that will never be beat.

In an effort to promote the education of the public on the history and the products of the Hudson Motor Car Company, the Hudson Essex Terraplane Historical Society has recreated the "Fabulous Hudson Hornet" Our Doc Hudson Project has toured the country allowing people of all ages and circumstance the opportunity to sit behind the wheel and experience a true American classic.
