Horseless Carriage Foundation Memberships

The Horseless Carriage Foundation is now offering memberships to those who wish to be affiliated with America's most prestigious automotive library and research center. We believe our members should be privileged as well. All members will receive a membership card, issues of the Foundation Newsletter, a unique HCFI membership pin each year, the opportunity to purchase HCFI memorabilia and early notice of any HCFI surplus sales.
