SAN Secures Companion Resolution from U.S. Senate Recognizing “Collector Car Appreciation Day”

Once Again, Lawmakers Express Support for Collection and Restoration of Collector Cars

The U.S. Senate passed Senate Resolution 300 (S. Res. 300) at the request of the SEMA Action Network (SAN) recognizing July 14, 2023 as “Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD).” A similar resolution was also introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives (H. Res. 573). The date marks the 14th commemoration in what has become an annual event to celebrate and raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.

These resolutions were introduced by co-chairs of the SEMA-supported Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus. S. Res. 300 was sponsored by Senate Co-Chairs Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) and Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK), while House Co-Chairs Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL) and Rep. Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (D-GA) sponsored H. Res. 573. These Congressional leaders are strong advocates for the automotive culture in Washington, D.C. The Caucus is an informal, non-partisan member organization that pays tribute to America’s ever-growing love affair with the car and motorsports.

All automotive enthusiasts are encouraged to take part in this year’s CCAD celebration by planning or attending events in their community. The SAN maintains the official event list to commemorate the day, which includes car shows, cruise-ins and parades nationwide.
