The provinces of Saskatchewan, Manitoba and New Brunswick have once again declared the month of July as Automotive Heritage Month, thanks in part to the efforts of the Manitoba Association of Auto Clubs (MAAC) and the National Association of Automobile Clubs of Canada (NAACC). Manitoba has also proclaimed July 13, 2018 as Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD). 

Earlier this year, the SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced the date to mark the ninth commemoration in what has become an annual event to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society. The SAN has also worked to secure a Congressional resolution to recognize the day’s significance. A resolution (H. Res. 980) has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives to recognize July 13, 2018, as CCAD. 

In the previous eight years, thousands of enthusiasts in the United States and Canada have gathered at car cruises, parades and other events to celebrate automotive heritage. By taking part in these events around the country, automotive enthusiasts and related businesses have ensured that their passion was honored and recognized.

Make your plans to get involved. Individuals, car clubs and business owners have been registering their gatherings for inclusion on the SAN website. Pay tribute to our hobby’s special day by holding or attending a celebration near you. Encourage others to follow suit. Let’s get those cars and trucks out of the garage and onto the road! Please submit the details of your celebration.

For questions, contact SAN Director Colby Martin at 909-978-6721 or san@sema.org. You may also download the official logo and flyer from the homepage and help promote this special day.
