American Truck Historical Society
Preserving the unique history of the American truck, the trucking industry, and its pioneers.
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.
The George Schroyer Memorial Scholarship provides two (2) annual scholarships to graduating high school seniors or undergraduates of all ages who intend to further their education at a two-year or four-year accredited U.S. college or university or vocational/technical school that have certification programs.
A benefit of your ATHS membership is the opportunity to join a local chapter. Attending chapter meetings and local truck shows are a great way to meet people who share your love for old iron. Find a chapter in your area or learn how start one, if there isn’t one nearby.
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.
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.
Wheels of Time is the premiere publication of the antique trucking world. Distributed bimonthly to ATHS members around the world, this full- color magazine is just one of the many benefits ATHS members enjoy. Members also have exclusive access to the Wheels of Time archives, with issues going back to the 80’s. Review a sample of the magazine, sign-up to become a member, or purchase past issues in our store.
