Thanks to the efforts of the National Association of Automobile Clubs of Canada, Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil issued a proclamation designating July 2014 as “Automotive Heritage Month” in the province. Nova Scotia joins several states, provinces and cities that have officially recognized the celebration of collector cars. For the past four years, the U.S. Senate has passed resolutions at the SEMA Action Network’s (SAN) request to acknowledge “Collector Car Appreciation Day” which serves to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society. This year’s celebration is scheduled for Friday, July 11th.
In the previous four years, thousands of hobbyists in the U.S and Canada have gathered at car cruises, parades and other events to celebrate our shared 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.
Individuals, car clubs and business owners have been registering their gatherings for inclusion on the SEMA Action Network (SAN) website. However you choose, please pay tribute to our hobby’s special day or month 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 SEMA Action Network (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.
