Collector Car Appreciation Day is Coming Up

Today’s Post by Joe Farace

The SEMA Action Network announced that the next Collector Car Appreciation Day will be celebrated on July 12, 2019. This mark the ninth consecutive commemoration in what is now an annual event to raise awareness of the vital role that automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.

All automotive enthusiasts are encouraged to take part in this year’s Collector Car Appreciation Day by planning or attending events in their community. Through its grassroots hobbyist organization, the SEMA Action Network is maintaining a list of scheduled events to commemorate the day. That’s our former 1953 Packard Clipped pictured above. You can read more about it here. So remember to hug your classic on July 12.

On a related topic, SEMA Vice President of Government Affairs Steve McDonald recently said “Our industry and vast enthusiast network would like to take this opportunity to thank Senators Burr and Tester for introducing and cosponsoring the “Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act” that verifies what has been understood by Congress, industry and enthusiasts since 1970, that it is permissible to turn a street vehicle into a racing machine driven exclusively at the track.
