Historic Vehicle Association
The Historic Vehicle Association (HVA) aims to keep “Yesterday’s Vehicles on Tomorrow’s Roads” by advocating for all enthusiasts, clubs, businesses and institutions involved with historic motoring.
The HVA actively:
Monitors social, environmental, technological and regulatory developments for their immediate and potential impact on historic vehicles
Collects data to establish fact-based positions relative to the industrial heritage, cultural contribution, economic significance, and low environmental impact of historic vehicles
Develops tools and processes to identify and classify historic vehicles in order to carve out specific protections and exemptions
Employs effective communication strategies to shape favorable public opinion and policy on behalf of the historic vehicle community
Supports the clubs, activities, institutions and businesses that form the fabric and infrastructure of the historic vehicle lifestyle
The HVA is an independent organization founded by Hagerty and appointed by the Federation Internationale des Vehicules Anciens (FIVA) in 2009 to be its exclusive North American affiliate.
Hagerty also supports:
The Collectors Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides scholarships and grants to organizations committed to hands-on education and making a difference in the lives of young people through the appeal of historic vehicles.
Operation Ignite! Youth Program
