The AAT Story
It wasn’t long ago that cars were a much bigger part of American life. For most, they were the first taste of freedom that opened the doors – and the world – to endless possibilities. Cruising down the main drag or backroads for Sunday family adventures was part of life. Now, cruising with friends has been replaced by a virtual world seen from a screen.
We believe that cars connect us to the best things in life and that America’s love affair with the automobile should not only be recognized as part of our history, but of our future. Knowing others believe the same, we saw an opportunity for like-minded organizations to work together and, in 2016, established America’s Automotive Trust to do just that.
Together with our partners and member organizations of LeMay – America’s Car Museum, the RPM Foundation, Club Auto and the Concours Club, we fulfill our purpose to honor the past, celebrate the present, and drive the future of car culture.
Education is at the heart of everything we do, and driving is at our core – from the classroom to the open road.
Much of modern-day American culture has been built on the means of transportation, and the future of mobility is as crucial now as it has ever been. Our automotive heritage should be secured for future generations – a mission that can only truly be accomplished by working together. Through America’s Automotive Trust, we share resources and support each other, streamlining efforts to make a greater impact.
It’s the love of everything automotive. The feel of the wind in your hair, or a wrench in your hand. The adrenaline of stepping on the accelerator, and the thrill of the journey rather than the destination. It’s the determination and satisfaction of fixing something, and having a community to enjoy it with.
We believe in not only preserving the passion for cars, but also being sure it continues to thrive. That’s why America’s Automotive Trust exists.
