Fort Walla Walla Museum is happy to welcome back the American Truck Historical Society, who will be hosting their 27th annual large scale car and truck show. The event will take place on Saturday, September 21 from 10 am to 5 pm. The truck show is organized and run by the Blue Mountain Chapter of the ATHS. Forty to fifty vehicles, including farm trucks, pickups, and semis, are expected to be on display along with small engines, tractors, and other transportation items. Admission to the museum will get you into the event.
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.
Individuals looking to showcase their vehicles or joining the ATHS Blue Mountain Chapter may contact Russ Shorten at 509-876-1795.
