Incorporated in 1971, the American Truck Historical Society was formed to preserve the history of trucks, the trucking industry, and its pioneers. An annual convention has been held each year since 1972 with a public antique truck show added in 1980. These shows have grown to over 1,000 trucks, fire apparatus, buses and RVs, military and special interest vehicles. The ATHS has members in all 50 states and 23 countries.
