Collector Car Appreciation Day Is July 10
The SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced that the next “Collector Car Appreciation Day” will be celebrated on July 10, 2015. The date marks the sixth consecutive commemoration in what is now an annual event to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.
Intended to celebrate the classics of the past and the future, the U.S. Senate helped launch Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) by passing resolutions each year at the SAN’s request. The previous resolutions were sponsored by Senator Jon Tester (D-MT), Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) and Senator Mark Begich (D-AK). The Senators have been strong advocates for the automotive hobby in Washington, D.C., and recognize the integral role collector cars have played in fostering our nation’s appreciation for the automobile’s unique historical place in our history.
SEMA invites all automotive enthusiasts to take part in Collector Car Appreciation Day by planning or attending collector car events in their community. Through its grassroots organization, the association is maintaining a list of Collector Car Appreciation Day events on its website, www.semasan.com. If you are unable to celebrate on July 10, the SAN encourages events to be scheduled throughout the month of July 2015.
