The Canadian province of Prince Edward Island has again issued a proclamation designating July 2016 as “Automotive Heritage Month.” Prince Edward Island joins other provinces as jurisdictions that have officially recognized this celebration of collector cars. Since 2010, the U.S. Senate has passed resolutions at the SEMA Action Network’s (SAN) request to acknowledge “Collector Car Appreciation Day” which serves to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society. This year’s celebration is scheduled for Friday, July 8th.
In the previous six years, thousands of hobbyists in the U.S and Canada have gathered at car cruises, parades and other events to celebrate our shared automotive heritage. By taking part in these events around the country, these automotive enthusiasts and related businesses have ensured that their passion was honored and recognized.
Individuals, car clubs and business owners have been registering their gatherings for inclusion on the SEMA Action Network (SAN) website. However you choose, please pay tribute to our hobby’s special day or month 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 SEMA Action Network (SAN) Director Colby Martin at 909-978-6721 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also download the official logo and flyer from the homepage and help promote this special day.
