Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) will be celebrated on July 8, 2016. 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) latest video PSA for tips on setting up your tribute. Please share it with your friends using the following link: https://youtu.be/yyR4cF0K8Zs
