The Auto Hobby’s Time to Shine!

Back to Driving Force, Summer 2017


  Hundreds celebrated Collector Car Appreciation Day at the Blackhawk Automotive Museum’s Cars & Coffee event last July.

Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) will be celebrated this year on July 14, 2017. At the request of the SAN, this “holiday” has been marked each year since 2010 by a U.S. Senate Resolution recognizing that the “collection and restoration of historic and classic cars is an important part of preserving the technological achievements and cultural heritage of the United States.” As in years past, a wide range of automotive events will be held to commemorate the occasion. As this annual event continues to grow worldwide, states, provinces, counties and cities are following suit with their own recognition. SEMA encourages participation throughout the month of July to honor the classics of the past and the future.
