U.S. Congress introduces resolution recognizing July 9th as 'Collector Car Appreciation Day'

July 9th, 2021 is deemed 'Collector Car Appreciation Day.' Help celebrate by getting out with your classic car, host an old car related activity and spreading the word.

SEMA SAN - The U.S. House of Representatives introduced House Resolution 491 (H. Res. 491) at the request of the SEMA Action Network (SAN) recognizing July 9, 2021 as “Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD).” The date marks the 12th 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 resolution was introduced by the House co-chairs of the SEMA-supported Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus, Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL) and Rep. Sanford Bishop (D-GA). 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.
