The U.S. Senate passed Senate Resolution 176 (S. Res. 176) at the request of the SEMA Action Network (SAN) designating July 12, 2013 as “Collector Car Appreciation Day.” The date marks the fourth commemoration in what has become an annual event to celebrate and raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.
A growing list of scheduled events, like car shows, cruise-ins and parades, will be held in support of this annual celebration. The SAN is maintaining the event list to commemorate the day at semaSAN.com/CCAD. Individuals, car clubs and business owners interested in publicizing events can submit the details using this link. Companies should consider hosting a “drive your collector car to work” day for staff members. More event ideas are available at this link. If you are unable to celebrate on July 12th, SAN encourages events to be scheduled throughout the month of July. Event organizers will be sent a copy of the official Senate Resolution for display at each event.
States, cities and Canadian provinces joined the U.S. Senate last year by passing their own proclamations and resolutions. This year, the Province of Nova Scotia has proclaimed July 2013 as “Automotive Heritage Month” in the spirit of this celebration. Several states are pursuing similar initiatives.

As always, the SAN welcomes any level of participation and encourages everyone to spread the word about our hobby’s “holiday.”
