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

In this video, get a view of a number of trucks from 1981-1984 that participated in the truck show portion of ATHS’ virtual event.

One truck featured in the video is a 1982 Kenworth W900A, owned by Ken Crouse of Lake Panorama, Iowa. Crouse said this truck is one of the last W900As manufactured by Kenworth with a VIN ending in 197614. It has a VIT Seattle Package with complete cab and sleeper tuck and roll. Crouse believes he is the third or fourth owner of the rig.

ATHS created 23 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.
