Sweethearts & Orphans XX

March 01 to March 03, 2019

The North Texas Chapter of the Hudson-Essex-Terraplane Club invites you to join us in historic Waxahachie, Texas, on March 1-3, 2019, to celebrate those great orphan marques, those wonderful, historic automobiles that have faded into the mists of time. Our meet celebrates all marques for which the manufacturers are no longer extant, such as Hudson, Nash, Studebaker, Packard, Kaiser-Frazer, AMC, and hundreds of others. We also celebrate corporate orphans such as LaSalle, Marquette, DeSoto, Edsel, and others - and even more recent orphans such as Plymouth, Mercury, and Oldsmobile Please bring only 1989 or earlier models to maintain the historic character of the meet. Finally, we invite ALL marques from 1942 and earlier as we believe them to be historically significant and of great public interest. This meet is not strictly limited to US-built cars and we are delighted to invite international orphans such as MG, Triumph, Hillman, and other orphans from other nations. S&O is a non-profit meet with all profits divided evenly between the American Heart Association and the Hudson-Essex-Terraplane Historical Society. It is a multi-day meet with a driving tour on Friday, a show-and-shine event on Saturday surrounding Waxahachie's beautiful downtown courthouse featured in the movie classic Places In The Heart, our Sweetheart's Date Night on Saturday evening, and our awards program on Sunday morning. S&O is a non-judging meet, other than Peoples' Choice Awards by decade. Your cars don't need to be perfect to be interesting Bring them out even if they're not completely done Our only request is that your vehicle be in original or restored to original condition. Restomods are fine, but please keep the hood shut if the drivetrain is not original. No hot rods, please We love ALL cars but this show is about automotive history rather than automotive art For additional meet registration materials, hotel information, or any other details, please email us. Hope to see you there
