Province of British Columbia Proclaims July 9, 2016 as COLLECTOR CAR APPRECIATION DAY


Thanks to the efforts of the Specialty Vehicle Association of British Columbia (SVABC), the province of British Columbia has again issued a proclamation designating July 9, 2016 as “Collector Car Appreciation Day” in the province.  The province also proclaimed the month of July 2016 to be Collector Car Appreciation Month.  Earlier this year, the SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced these dates to mark the seventh commemoration in what has become an annual event to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.  The SAN is again working to secure a U.S. Senate resolution to recognize the day’s significance. 

In the previous six years, thousands of hobbyists in the U.S and Canada have gathered at car cruises, parades and other events to celebrate our shared automotive heritage.  By taking part in these events around the country, these automotive enthusiasts and related businesses have ensured that their passion was honored and recognized. 

Individuals, car clubs and business owners have been registering their gatherings for inclusion on the SEMA Action Network (SAN) website. However you choose, please pay tribute to our hobby’s special day or month by holding or attending a celebration near you. Encourage others to follow suit. Let’s get those cars and trucks out of the garage and onto the road!

Please submit the details of your celebration. For questions, contact SEMA Action Network (SAN) Director Colby Martin at 909/978-6721 or You may also download the official logo and flyer from the homepage and help promote this special day.
