Updated Jun 12, 2020

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 first 27 years of trucking that participated in the truck show portion of ATHS’ virtual event. Some featured trucks include a 1902 American steam fire engine, a 1915 International, a 1923 Mack AB 1.5-ton, a 1929 Mack AK and more.

The group created 20 videos spanning 118 years of trucks, starting with this 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.
