Collector Car Appreciation Day - Friday July 11, 2014


The SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced that the next “Collector Car Appreciation Day” will be celebrated on July 11, 2014. The date will mark the fifth consecutive commemoration in what is now an annual event to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.

The U.S. Senate helped launch Collector Car Appreciation Day by passing Resolutions each year at the SAN’s request. The previous resolutions were sponsored by Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) and Senator Richard Burr (R-NC). Senators Tester and Burr have been strong advocates for the automotive hobby in Washington, D.C., and recognize the integral role collector cars have played in fostering our nation’s appreciation for the automobile’s unique historical place in our history.

Below is a list of scheduled events to commemorate America’s time-tested love affair with the automobile. Individuals, car clubs and business owners interested in publicizing events can submit the details of their July celebration using this link. If you are unable to celebrate on July 11, the SAN encourages events to be scheduled throughout the month of July 2014.
