New Mexico Governor Again Proclaims "COLLECTOR CAR APPRECIATION DAY"

As she did in 2012, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez issued a proclamationdesignating July 12, 2013 as “Collector Car Appreciation Day” in the state.  Earlier this year, the U.S. Senate passed Senate Resolution 176 at the SEMA Action Network’s (SAN) request to acknowledge the day’s significance in raising awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.  The date marks the fourth commemoration in what has become an annual event. 

In the previous three years, thousands of Americans 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 ensured that their passion was honored and recognized.

SAN is maintaining a list of scheduled events to commemorate America’s time-tested love affair with the automobile.  Individuals, car clubs and business owners interested in publicizing July, 2013 events should contact Colby Martin of the SEMA Government Affairs office at 909/978-6721 or
