The American Truck Historical Society held its annual convention and truck show in a virtual format in late May.

In the video above, get a view of a number of trucks from 1940-1946 that participated in the truck show portion of ATHS’ virtual event. The video below covers the remainder of the decade. Featured trucks include a 1940 Mack FK, a 1946 Ford dump truck, a 1947 Peterbilt 344 and more.

The group created 20 videos spanning 118 years of trucks, starting with a video showing trucks from 1902 to 1929 and ending with one that includes trucks from 1996 to 2020. In total, more than 1,400 trucks participated in the event.
