July 8 Marks 13th Annual Collector Car Appreciation Day

Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) will be celebrated this year on July 8.

Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) will be celebrated this year on July 8. At the request of the SEMA Action Network (SAN), this holiday has been marked each year since 2010 by a U.S. Congressional Resolution recognizing that the “collection and restoration of historic and classic cars is an important part of preserving the technological achievements and cultural heritage of the United States.”  States, local governments and Canadian provinces have adopted similar commemorative declarations, making it an international recognition of the collector-car hobby and the millions of individuals who support it.

Whether public or private, plan and submit your automotive-inspired July event at no cost. Locate an official listing near you and more the SEMA Action Network (SAN) website, which includes Courtney Hansen’s video public service announcement (PSA) shown above.

As in years past, a wide range of automotive festivities—both in-person and web-based—will honor the classics of the past and the future. Those planning live gatherings and virtual celebrations (online event, livestream, digital gallery, etc.) during July are invited to provide details for inclusion on the SAN website. As always, the SAN welcomes any level of participation throughout the month of July and encourages everyone to spread the word about commemorating the occasion.

Celebrate the hobby your way!

  • Attend an official vehicle-inspired event or web-based celebration.
  • Host your own safety-minded gathering, club meeting or online gallery.
  • Promote a holiday sale at your business in-store or online.
  • Invite partnerships with nearby enthusiast-related groups, if possible.
  • Drive your special ride—new or old—whatever the destination.
