Members of the American Muscle Car Club of Panama City, Florida, celebrate National Collector Car Appreciation Day.

The Auto Hobby’s Holiday Turns 10!

Congress Marks Collector Car Appreciation Day’s 10th Anniversary as July 12


At the request of the SAN, a resolution (H. Res. 108) was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives to recognize July 12, as Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD). H. Res. 108 is sponsored by Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus House Co-Chairs Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL) and Rep. Sanford Bishop (D-GA). The date marks the 10th 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 list of officially scheduled events to commemorate America’s time-tested love affair with the automobile is posted on www.semasan.com/CCAD. Individuals, car clubs and business owners interested in publicizing events may submit the details of their July celebration at no cost. Participating organizers will be awarded a copy of the congressional resolution for display at their registered event.

States, local governments and Canadian provinces have adopted similar commemorative declarations, making it an international recognition of the collector-car hobby and the millions of individuals who support it. Several jurisdictions are pursuing similar initiatives.

Download the official logo and flyer from the homepage and help promote this special day. As always, the SAN welcomes any level of participation and encourages everyone to spread the word about our hobby’s holiday.
