The Society of Automotive Historians in Britain (SAHB) is an independent organisation, created to encourage the research, preservation, recording, compilation and publication of historical material concerning the development of the automobile and related subjects, from inception to the present day.

For its members, the SAHB provides a unique camaraderie and an information exchange network through which other people with similar interests can be located. The Society’s membership also includes corporations, museums and other institutions that support the preservation of our motoring heritage for future generations to appreciate.

An interest in automotive history is all you need to become a member.

If you have read this text so far it indicates that your share our passion for the history of motor vehicles, so why not join The Society of Automotive Historians in Britain – new members always receive an especially warm welcome.


The Society of Automotive Historians in Britain (SAHB) organises two Seminars each year, one in the spring and the other in the autumn, allowing members to meet face-to-face. Held at different venues around the country, Seminars have members and guest speakers giving presentations that cover a wide variety of motoring-related topics – and usually generate lively debate.


By becoming part of the SAHB you will receive a number of authoritative publications each year, both in electronic and book formats, all written and edited by people keen to share their specialist knowledge and expertise. The SAHB publishes The SAHB Times, a quarterly newsletter with items about members’ activities, short articles, letters, requests for information and classified adverts. In addition, there is the annual Aspects of Motoring History – an acclaimed book produced by the Society containing in-depth articles that cover both ancient and modern automotive subjects. The SAHB also publishes its own SAHB Membership Directory in printed form about every three years.


The Internet has now become an integral part of daily life. Therefore, the Society keeps a register of the most informative motoring-related websites which is available to members. These are accessed on the SAHB website is; using the link titled ‘Sources & Links’.
