We are "Preserving the Past for the Future" - and You Can Help!

Who we are
The Automotive History Preservation Society (AHPS) is a non-profit 501 c3 organization that has been in existence since 2010. We are "Preserving the Past for the Future" - of the written and printed history of the automobile from pictures, period advertisements, brochures, magazine articles, and manufacturer's published materials and other documentation.

What we do
The AHPS sources printed material from individuals, manufacturers, publishers and other small collections. This material is carefully sorted and prepared for digital scanning and can be accessed through our Digital Documents Library - right here.

Learn How you can help!
As a non-profit 501 c3 organization, the AHPS relies on dues from our members and contributions from sponsors for the working capital to continue our efforts. Your contributions go directly into the collection of materials and the operation of the website. For more information, CLICK HERE.
