Thanks to the efforts of the Specialty Vehicle Association of British Columbia (SVABC), the province of British Columbia has again issued a proclamation designating July 8, 2017 as “Collector Car Appreciation Day” in the province. The province also proclaimed the month of July 2017 to be Collector Car Appreciation Month. Earlier this year, the SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced dates in July to mark the eighth commemoration in what has become an annual event to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society. The SAN is again working to secure a U.S. Senate resolution to recognize the day’s significance.
In the previous seven years, thousands of enthusiasts in the U.S and Canada have gathered at car cruises, parades and other events to celebrate our nation’s automotive heritage. By taking part in these events around the country, these automotive enthusiasts and related businesses have ensured that their passion was honored and recognized.
Make your plans to get involved. Individuals, car clubs and business owners have been registering their gatherings for inclusion on the SAN website at this link. However you choose, please pay tribute to our hobby’s special day by holding or attending a celebration near you. Encourage others to follow suit. Let’s get those cars and trucks out of the garage and onto the road!
Please submit the details of your celebration. For questions, contact SAN Director Colby Martin at 909-978-6721 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also download the official logo and flyer from the homepage and help promote this special day.
