U.S. Senate Honors the Auto Hobby’s “Holiday!” How Will You Celebrate in July?

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

Celebrate Collector Car Appreciation Day, July 10, 2015.

The U.S. Senate recently passed Senate Resolution 196 (S. Res. 196) designating July 10, 2015, as Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD). S. Res. 196 was sponsored by Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus Co-Chairs Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) and Senator Jon Tester (D-MT). At the request of SEMA, this holiday has been marked each year since 2010 by a U.S. Senate Resolution recognizing that the “collection and restoration of historic and classic cars is an important part of preserving the technological achievements and cultural heritage of the United States.”

As in years past, a wide range of automotive events will be held to commemorate the occasion. As this annual event continues to grow worldwide, states, provinces, counties and cities are following suit with their own recognition. SEMA encourages participation throughout the month of July to honor the classics of the past and the future.

Celebrate the hobby your way!

  • Attend an official vehicle-inspired event.
  • Host your own gathering or club meeting. 
  • Promote a “holiday sale” at your business.
  • Drive your special ride, new or old, wherever the destination.

Plan and submit your July event at no cost or locate an event near you on the SEMA Action Network (SAN) website.
