Celebrate Collector Car Appreciation Day 2013

SEMA Action Network, Collector Car Appreciation Day

On July 12, 2013, automotive enthusiasts, car clubs, organizations and affiliated businesses participated in celebrations to honor the fourth annual Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD).  A wide range of official events were held in the United States, Canada and Australia to commemorate the day throughout the month of July.   

A gallery of images from these gatherings is now available in an online album at this link from the CCAD homepage on the SAN website.  The photos from sent in by this year’s event hosts are greatly appreciated.  Event organizers who have not yet submitted their images to us for publication may e-mail them to SEMA Action Network (SAN) Director Colby Martin at with “2013 Collector Car Event Photos” as the subject line. Include your event details (name, date, city, state and host) in the message as well. 

This special day was designated by U.S. Senate Resolution 176 sponsored by Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) and Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) at the request of the SAN.  The U.S. Senate Resolution recognizes “that the collection and restoration of historic and classic cars is an important part of preserving the technological achievements and cultural heritage of the United States.” Lawmakers in states, counties and local areas all over the country and Canada have followed the Senate’s lead. This year, New Mexico, New York, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Madera County, California and Washington Parish, Louisiana joined the U.S. Senate in proclaiming Collector Car Appreciation Day.

The SAN would like to thank everyone who supported our hobby’s “holiday” this year. Stay tuned for the announcement of next year’s celebration!
