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.

In the previous two 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.

The SEMA Action Network (SAN) is maintaining a list of scheduled events to commemorate America’s time-tested love affair with the automobile. SEMA members interested in publicizing events of any size should contact SAN Director Colby Martin at 909-978-6721 or The official logo and flyer are available for download from the homepage to help promote this special day. If you are unable to celebrate Friday, July 13, events are encouraged to be scheduled throughout the month of July.
