A combination of academic, enthusiast and social gatherings centering on automotive histories is one event not to be missed.
2017 has been a significant year for motor vehicle manufacture in Australia with the closure of the last Holden Plant at Elizabeth. To acknowledge the important restoration and preservation of motor vehicles performed by private owners and in motor museums, the theme of the 2017 Automotive Historians Australia (AHA) Conference is: Our Automotive Heritage.
