What is the Future Collectible

Vehicle of the Year Award?

As a friend of The Automotive Heritage Foundation you get a vote to help determine the Automotive Heritage Future Collectible Vehicle of the Year. Created originally by our late friend and colleague Mike Davis for the National Automotive History Collection at the Detroit Public Library, the award honors that vehicle – new or significantly redesigned for the designated calendar year, available in the U.S., with a base price of less than $100,000 – that we may see at collector car shows 25 years hence. This year’s list of nominees includes a few that barely get in under that cost limit, but are excellent candidates.

The manufacturer of the winning vehicle will be invited to be part of our Automotive Heritage Awards event in July, and you will have the satisfaction of helping make that selection.



An AHF committee comes up with eligible vehicles – new or substantially redesigned, costing less than $100,000 and available in the U.S. AHF audience members choose the winner by an open vote.


Though the winner is usually a low-production or specialty vehicles like the Ford Shelby 350 or Dodge Viper, we are cognizant of surprise collectibles like the every-day-at-the-time 1957 Chevy or BMW 2002.
