Thanks to the efforts of the Manitoba Association of Auto Clubs (MAAC) and the National Association of Automobile Clubs of Canada (NAACC), the provinces of Manitoba and New Brunswick are once again declaring the month of July as “Automotive Heritage Month.” Manitoba is also proclaiming July 13, 2018 as “Collector Car Appreciation Day.” Earlier this year, the SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced the date to mark the ninth 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 Congressional resolution to recognize the day’s significance.
In the previous eight years, thousands of enthusiasts in the U.S and Canada have gathered at car cruises, parades, and other events to celebrate our nation’s 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.
Make your plans to get involved. Individuals, car clubs, and business owners have been 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!
Please submit the details of your celebration. For questions, contact SAN Director Colby Martin at 909-978-6721 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also download the official logo and flyer from the homepage and help promote this special day.
