Province of Newfoundland and Labrador Proclaims July 2019 as “Automotive Heritage Month”

Thanks to the efforts of the National Association of Automobile Clubs of Canada (NAACC), Newfoundland and Labrador Minister Shery Gamin-Walsh has again issued a proclamation designating July as “Automotive Heritage Month” in the province.  Since 2010, the U.S. Congress has introduced resolutions at the SEMA Action Network’s (SAN) request to acknowledge “Collector Car Appreciation Day” (CCAD) which serves to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society. This year’s celebration is scheduled for Friday, July 12th.

In the previous nine years, thousands of enthusiasts in the U.S and Canada have gathered at car cruises, parades, and other events to celebrate each nation’s automotive heritage.  By taking part in these events around the country, 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. 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 You may also download the official logo and flyer from the homepage and help promote this special day.
