The Second International Drive History Conference on the preservation of automotive heritage, April 2018, as part of Automotive Heritage Month, organized by:
- The Historic Vehicle Association (HVA)
- College of Charleston (Historic Preservation and Community Planning Program)
- Society of Automotive Historians
- The NB Center for American Automotive Heritage
- The Revs Institute®
The Second International Drive History 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.
