Hawaii Resolutions Seek Recognition for Collector Car Appreciation Day

Resolutions have been introduced in the Hawaii House of Representatives and Senate seeking recognition by the state for July 13, 2012, as Collector Car Appreciation Day. Earlier this year, the SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced this date to mark the third commemoration in what has become an annual event to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.

SAN is again working to secure a U.S. Congressional resolution to recognize the day’s significance. In the previous two years, thousands of Americans have gathered at car cruises, parades and other events to celebrate our nation’s automotive heritage. 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 events should contact Colby Martin at colbym@sema.org
