Mississippi Legislature Proclaims July 13, 2018 as “COLLECTOR CAR APPRECIATION DAY”

The state of Mississippi passed a Senate Concurrent Resolution (S.C.R. 649) completing legislative action and officially designating July 13, 2018, as “Collector Car Appreciation Day” in the state. The legislation was introduced thanks to the efforts of Senator Hillman Frazier. The SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced this 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 U.S. Senate 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.

Make your plans to get involved. Individuals, car clubs, and business owners have been registering their gatherings for inclusion on the SAN website at this link. However you choose, 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 san@sema.org. You may also download the official logo and flyer from the homepage and help promote this special day.

Thank you for supporting this resolution.
