We were honored to participate in the American Truck Historical Society (ATHS) National Convention & Truck Show, in Reno, Nevada from June 8-10, 2023.
Honoring Trucking’s Legacy
Established in 1971, the ATHS was founded to preserve the rich history of trucks, the trucking industry, and its pioneers. Since its inception in 1972, the annual convention has grown steadily, incorporating a public antique truck show in 1980. This remarkable event has evolved into a gathering of over 1,000 trucks and trailers, representing various makes, shapes, and sizes. Truck enthusiasts from all over the world eagerly anticipate the ATHS National Convention & Truck Show. Marking it as the official kickoff event of the summer season.
The ATHS National Convention & Truck Show 2023 edition brought together a diverse array of more than 1,000 trucks. The host hotel, Grand Sierra Resort & Casino, warmly accommodated both the impressive truck display and the enthusiastic crowds of nearly 10,000 spectators. The exhibition of historical and classic trucks left us captivated and in awe.
