"Doc's Apple Blossom Meet", an all-Hudson antique car show and flea market, will take place at Skyline Caverns, Front Royal, Virginia on Sunday, May 11, from 8:00 AM to noon. The public is welcome and there is no charge.

The show is the final event in the three-day annual gathering of Hudson, Essex and Terraplane enthusiasts in Front Royal, Virginia. The get-together has run continuously since it was begun by Front Royal resident D. C. "Doc" Daugherty and his wife Thelma in 1964.

The meet begins on Friday, May 9 at 5:00 PM, when Hudson owners meet at the VFW Hall, 1847 North Royal Ave. for a pot-luck dinner at 6:00. On Saturday, many attendees will display their cars at the Apple Blossom Meet, a large, mixed-make antique car show in nearby Winchester sponsored by the Shenandoah Region AACA. At 5:00 PM the group will assemble at the Northern Virginia 4-H Educational Center, 600 4-H Center Rd. just south of town, to enjoy a 6:00 PM buffet dinner. (The public is welcome to stop by on either Friday or Saturday night to view the Hudsons, and is also welcome to attend the dinner if they make reservations by April 30.) The car show at the Skyline Caverns on Sunday morning concludes the meet.

The Hudson Motor Car Company produced automobiles and light trucks from 1910 through 1954 in Detroit, and Hudsons were built by the American Motors Corporation, successor to Hudson, from 1955-57. Hudson's memory is kept alive by the Hudson-Essex-Terraplane Club, a 3,000-member worldwide group begun in 1959. The Club's website is at
