Collector Car Appreciation Day

Hawaii Approves Resolutions Recognizing “Collector Car Appreciation Day”

Two resolutions have been approved by the Hawaii State Legislature
recognizing July 13, 2012 as “Collector Car Appreciation Day.” Earlier
this year, SEMA designated 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. SEMA is
again working to secure a U.S. Congressional resolution to recognize
the day’s significance.
