Collector Car Appreciation Day

The SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced that the next Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) will be officially celebrated on July 10, 2020.  The date marks the eleventh 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. Congress has helped launch CCAD by introducing resolutions each year at the SAN’s request.  The previous resolutions were sponsored by co-chairs of the SEMA-supported Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus.  These Congressional leaders 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.

A list of officially scheduled events to commemorate America’s time-tested love affair with the automobile is posted in the link below.  Individuals, car clubs and business owners interested in publicizing events submitted the details of their July celebration at no cost using this link.  Participating organizers were be awarded a copy of the Congressional resolution for display at their registered event.  For those unable to celebrate on July 10, the SAN encouraged events to be scheduled throughout the month of July 2020.
