About the Automotive Hall of Fame
The mission of the Automotive Hall of Fame is to honor and celebrate the accomplishments of individuals in the international motor vehicle industry through awards and educational programs that challenge young and old alike to higher levels of personal achievement.

It began in 1939 as the “Automobile Old Timers” association in New York, NY. Its mission was to perpetuate the memories of the early automotive pioneers. It moved to Washington, DC in 1960, and then Midland, MI in 1971 before moving to its current location in Dearborn, MI in 1997.

The Hall of Fame building is a 25,000 square foot museum with exhibits and information honoring its awardees. The exhibits illustrate major automotive contributions and innovations by men and women from around the world. Since its founding in 1939, AHF has honored nearly 800 men and women.

The Hall also has a digital presence with a website, blog, emails, and social media that tell stories of the people behind the automotive industry and the vehicles, innovations, and technology that they have influenced. This includes stories, biographies, photo galleries, videos and more that are continuously updated to keep stories fresh and relevant for the visitors.
