In 2021, ATHS is celebrating its 50th year as a Society. For half a century, ATHS has preserved the history of trucks, the trucking industry, and its pioneers. And now we are celebrating!
ATHS is commemorating this golden milestone throughout the year, including fun events, select merchandise, and special articles in Wheels of Time. The Board of Directors invites everyone to celebrate.
Check out our special events in the Celebrate With Us! or shop our commemorative merchandise in the Shop the Merch area. The special articles from Wheels of Time will be posted as they are published, so make sure to check regularly for any new tidbits!
