The Automotive Hobby’s “Holiday” Is Back

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

A wide range of automotive events are held on the second Friday in July to honor Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD). At the request of the SEMA Action Network (SAN), 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 this annual event continues to grow worldwide, states, provinces, counties and cities are following suit with their own recognition. The SAN 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, whatever the destination.

Plan and submit your July event at no cost, locate a listing near you and more on the SAN website (participating organizers will be awarded a copy of the congressional resolution for display at each registered event).
