Don’t Miss the Auto Hobby’s Holiday

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) will be celebrated this year on July 12. At the request of SEMA, this holiday has been marked each year since 2010 by a U.S. Congressional 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.

Plan and submit your July event at no cost, locate a listing near you and more on the SEMA Action Network (SAN) website.
