West Virginia Introduces Resolution Designating West Virginia "COLLECTOR CAR APPRECIATION DAY"

Thanks to the efforts of Delegate Gary Howell, a West Virginia House Concurrent Resolution (H.C.R. 77) has been introduced to designate the second Friday in July as West Virginia Collector Car Appreciation Day.  For the past 5 years, the U.S. Senate has passed a similar resolution, at the SEMA Action Network’s (SAN) request, to acknowledge the day’s significance in raising awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.

Please Contact Members of the House Roads and Transportation Committee (List Below) Immediately to Request Support for H.C.R. 77.

  • H.C.R. 77 recognizes that the collection and restoration of historic and classic cars is an important part of preserving the technological achievements and cultural heritage of West Virginia. Many people in this state maintain classic automobiles as a pastime and do so with great passion and as a means of individual expression. 
     
  • H.C.R. 77 acknowledges that it is important to recognize the effect that the more than 100-year history of the automobile has had on the economic progress of the United States and to support wholeheartedly all activities involved in the restoration and exhibition of classic automobiles.
     
  • H.C.R. 77 promotes the collection, restoration and preservation of automobiles as an activity shared across generations and across all segments of society. Hundreds of local car clubs and related businesses have been instrumental in preserving a historic part of the heritage of West Virginia by encouraging the restoration and exhibition of such vintage works of art.

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact House Roads and Transportation Committee members to request support for H.C.R. 77
