WISCONSIN — Wisconsin Assembly Joint Resolution (AJR 79) to annually designate the second Friday in July as “Collector Vehicle Appreciation Day” in the state was recently approved by the legislature. Six years ago, in an effort to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society, the SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced the second Friday in July as an annual commemoration of collector vehicles. The next Collector Car Appreciation Day will be celebrated on July 8.
Wisconsin has followed the lead of the U.S. Senate’s resolutions. Intended to celebrate the classics of the past and the future, the U.S. Senate helped launch Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) by passing Resolutions each year at the SAN’s request. The previous resolutions were sponsored by Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) and Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT).
In the previous six years, thousands of Americans have gathered at car cruises, parades and other events to celebrate our nation’s automotive heritage.
