SEMA SAN - The U.S. Senate passed Senate Resolution 690 (S. Res. 690) at the request of the SEMA Action Network (SAN) recognizing July 8, 2022 as Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD). A similar resolution was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives (H. Res. 1201). The date marks the 13th commemoration of what has become an annual event to celebrate and raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.

The two resolutions were introduced by co-chairs of the SEMA-supported Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus. S. Res. 690 was sponsored by Senate Co-Chairs Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) and Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) while House Co-Chair Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL) sponsored H. Res. 1201. These Congressional leaders are strong advocates for the automotive hobby in Washington, D.C. The Caucus is an informal, non-partisan member organization that pays tribute to America’s ever-growing love affair with the car and motorsports.

If you or someone you know is hosting a vehicle-related gathering in July—whether public or private—submit the details on the SAN website if you haven't done so already! Those planning to celebrate with a virtual gathering (online event, livestream, digital gallery, etc.) are welcome to provide details for official inclusion.
