Our August 2020 Second Thursday Talk is a video tour of the former Hays Antique Truck Museum collection.
By the Museum’s Automotive Collections Manager Jay Hubbard
The former Hays Antique Truck Museum (HATM) was founded in 1982 by A.W. Hays and was located in Woodland, CA. After the HATM closed, a portion of the collection was donated to our Museum and is currently stored in a local warehouse. The first HATM vehicle brought into our Museum was the 1920 Ford Model T/Smith Form-A-Truck which is part of the current Ford Model T exhibit in our Changing Exhibits Gallery.
(Video will be available on Thursday, August 13 starting at 1:30 p.m.)
