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 digitally preserving the history of the automobile in pictures, period advertisements, brochures, magazine articles, and manufacturer's published materials - for YOU.
What we do
The AHPS collects these historical materials and:
- We digitize them using software tools - and at the same time carefully restore them to as close to original condition as possible. Then we store them on the Internet and make them available through this website via our Digital Documents Library.
- We compile materials from multiple sources - for easy access and reference. These compilations are placed in our Technical Information Center.
- We publish stories and articles using our collections. We list current auto shows, events and activities. We show "living auto history" via member's collector cars. These are placed in our News and Feature Articles Section.
You may access these materials by clicking on the buttons at the LEFT. A very limited amount of material is only available to Society members. This is a small amount of our over 250,000 pages of documentation.
How you can help!
As a non-profit 501 c3 organization, the AHPS relies on donations, dues from our members and contributions from sponsors for the working capital to continue our efforts. Contributions go directly into the collection of materials and the operation of the website. You can also volunteer to help! E-mail us at email@example.com.
