What Has SEMA Done for You Lately?

The Auto Hobby’s Holiday Is Back!


By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff


Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) will be celebrated this year on July 14. 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.

Check out the SEMA Action Network’s (SAN) video PSA featuring TV personality Courtney Hansen and her ’57 Ford Thunderbird and share it with your friends.

Celebrate the hoby 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, locate a listing near you and more on the SEMA SAN website. Participating organizers will be awarded a copy of the Congressional resolution for display at each registered event.
