Additional Provinces Proclaim July 2021 as “Automotive Heritage Month”
Congratulations, Canada! Several additional provinces have recently announced they are once again declaring the month of July as “Automotive Heritage Month,” with some also recognizing Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD). These special occasions are held concurrently each year.
Alberta, British Columbia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Saskatchewan join other provinces that have officially recognized the celebrations this year. Thanks go out to the efforts of the National Association of Automobile Clubs of Canada (NAACC), the Specialty Vehicle Association of Alberta (SVAA), and the Specialty Vehicle Association of British Columbia (SVABC).
Since 2010, the U.S. Congress has introduced resolutions at the request of the SEMA Action Network (SAN) to acknowledge CCAD, which serves to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society. This year’s national celebration is scheduled for Friday, July 9th.
In previous years, thousands of enthusiasts in the U.S and Canada have gathered at car cruises, parades, and other events to celebrate the automotive heritage of each nation. By taking part in events around their country, these automotive enthusiasts and related businesses have ensured that their passion was honored and recognized.
Make your plans to get involved. Individuals, car clubs and business owners have been officially registering their gatherings for inclusion on the SAN website. Please pay tribute to our hobby’s special day 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!
