Who Are we?

Back in 1996, a group of Hudson, Essex, and Terraplane enthusiasts decided to form a chapter of the National Hudson Essex Terraplane club.  This chapter serves the Eastern portion of Kansas and Western portion of Missouri.

We are still going strong, keeping HET (Hudson, Essex, and Terraplane) vehicles on the road and the brands alive.  Once you start looking, you'll be surprised how many of these cars have survived!
