Province of Nova Scotia Proclaims July 2013 as “Automotive Heritage Month”

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

Thanks to the efforts of the National Association of Automobile Clubs of Canada, Nova Scotia Premier Darrell E. Dexter issued a proclamation designating July 2013 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 three years, the U.S. Senate has passed resolutions at SEMA’s 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 12.    

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 SAN Director Colby Martin at 909-978-6721 or You may also download the official logo and flyer from the homepage and help promote this special day.
