Driving History – Putting Preservation on the Road:

Protecting Our Overlooked Automotive Heritage in the Twenty-first Century


The Historic Vehicle Association (HVA) and the Historic Preservation & Community Planning Program at the College of Charleston are pleased to present an international conference on the preservation of automotive heritage.


The Driving History-Putting Preservation on the Road Conference is the first international academic event of its kind known to have taken place in North America. The event is bringing together scholars, practitioners, hobbyists, students, among others, who are interested in the history and preservation of motor vehicle heritage. At the conference, we hope to exchange ideas and learn from one other about how the preservation of motor vehicle heritage can be made a more centrist part of the historic preservation field in respect to both tangible material culture and intangible traditions.


Event Date: October 20-22, 2016


Event Location:

Historic Vehicle Association Research Laboratory

Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA


Registration Information:
