Collector Car Appreciation Day - Friday, July 8, 2016

The SEMA Action Network (SAN) will celebrate “Collector Car Appreciation Day” on July 8, 2016. The date marks the seventh 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 Richard Burr (R-NC) and Senator Jon Tester (D-MT). 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.

Below is a list of scheduled events to commemorate America’s time-tested love affair with the automobile. Individuals, car clubs and business owners interested in publicizing events submitted the details of their July celebration at no cost using this link. For those unable to celebrate on July 8, the SAN encourages events to be scheduled throughout the month of July 2016.

CELEBRATE OUR HOBBY YOUR WAY!

  • ATTEND an official vehicle-inspired event
  • HOST your own gathering or club meeting
  • Promote a HOLIDAY SALE at your business
  • INVITE partnerships with nearby enthusiast-related groups  
  • DRIVE your special ride, new or old, whatever the destination
