For the Love of Old Trucks

You don’t have to own an old truck to appreciate how they shaped our country. Help us preserve that unique and exciting history for generations to come. Oh … and we have some pretty cool member benefits too!

We believe the trucking industry is a major contributor to the economic success of this country. It’s imperative we preserve the history of the people, machines, and technology that have made significant contributions to the industry.

It takes a lot of work to keep ATHS moving forward. Thanks to our major donors and partners, we are able to do so much more! Please take a moment to learn more about the individuals and businesses who are actively helping ATHS preserve our history for years to come.

Darren, Life Member Award

ATHS members are encouraged to nominate living pioneers of the American trucking industry for a prestigious ATHS Award. Help us honor the men, women, and companies who paved the way for progress from coast to coast and around the world. Those who have devoted their lives to this unique career deserve to be cheered and revered.
