Celebrate the First-Ever Collector Car Appreciation Day

The U.S. Senate unanimously passed Senate Resolution 513 designating Friday, July 9, 2010, as Collector Car Appreciation Day. This effort was undertaken by your SEMA Action Network (SAN) friends in Washington, D.C., as a means to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society. Collector Car Appreciation Day will also provide an opportunity for enthusiasts, like you, to gather at events nationwide to celebrate this special day and raise awareness of the importance of our great American hobby.

The resolution, sponsored by Senators Jon Tester and Richard Burr “encourages the people of the United States to engage in events and commemorations of Collector Car Appreciation Day that create opportunities for collector car owners to educate young people on the importance of preserving the cultural heritage of the United States, including through the collection and restoration of collector cars.”

Across the country, events are being planned to recognize this important day for collectors and enthusiasts. Car cruises, club gatherings and other fun events will take place to recognize the importance of preserving the heritage of the United States by encouraging the restoration and exhibition of collector cars. The success of the resolution is only as strong as your participation in events on July 9, and we are asking (not that we have to!) all members of the SAN to get involved and make the first Collector Car Appreciation Day one for the history books.

Here are some ways you can get involved to make July 9 a special day:

· If you own a collector car, drive it to work and show your coworkers!
· If you are a member of a car club, host an event or move an upcoming gathering to July 9 from its original date.
· If you are a member of another hobbyist organization, think about partnering with clubs in your area to attract more participants and make a big splash on the first Collector Car Appreciation Day.
· Don’t forget to invite your friends, neighbors, and even your local elected officials to events in your area to get them involved in the hobby.

If you or your car club are planning to recognize the occasion or would like information on setting up a Collector Car Appreciation Day event, please contact SAN Director Ethan Landesman at ethanl@ sema.org as soon as possible. We will then add your event to the master list available at www.semasan.com and publicize your event to the national enthusiast community.
