It’s Collector Car Appreciation Day


When some people see the above photograph they often assume I was just walking by this little tableaux and happened to have my camera with me and took a picture. The truth is much more complicated than that. Read the whole story here.

The U.S. Senate passed Senate Resolution 493 designating July 11, 2014 as “Collector Car Appreciation Day.” The date marks the fifth commemoration in what has become an annual event to celebrate and raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.

Collector Car Appreciation Day is the opportunity for everyone involved in this great American hobby to show off their cars and celebrate new traditions and for photographers to make great pictures of them. Businesses and car clubs across the country will be hosting car shows and cruises. More events are being held to commemorate this special day each year.”


All automotive enthusiasts are encouraged to take part in this year’s celebration by planning or attending events in their community. Through its grassroots hobbyist organization, SEMA is maintaining a list of scheduled events to commemorate the day.
