Joining the Automotive History Preservation Society -
Your Donation Helps Us Grow Our Digital Documents Library!

Why The Society's Work is Important -

  • Automotive history is a cultural Necessity
  • The history of the automobile is a significant part of the history of the mechanized world
  • The automobile changed the United States more than any other country
  • The automobile: gave mobility to people, changed the manufacturing process, and changed our lifestyles
  • The history of the automobile ? and even the hobbies surrounding it - are an essential part of our lives and important in our educational and evaluative process.
  • Without some organization to both collect the documents created around automotive history and make them readily available, much of the cultural necessity will be lost.

Why You Should Join the Society -

  • Participation - any not for profit organization relies on volunteers to get the job done and we are no exception. Whether you are actively involved in day to day operations or just "cheer-leading", the more people who stand behind what we are doing the better!
  • Helping Out - organizations with little operational funding always need volunteers to help with a myriad of tasks - after you join contact and we'll fill you in on where we need help.
  • Raising Consciousness - Each and every member of the Society should be willing to "talk up" the Society's mission to others with similar interests.
  • Funding Our Work - Volunteers are great, but many aspects of the Society need cash to function: operating the website, paying students a stipend to scan for us, acquiring rare documents, paying for scanning tools and software are a few of where only cash will help.

Please join us and become part of the many participants who make saving auto history something to be proud of.
