13th Annual Collector Car Appreciation Day to be Celebrated July 8, 2022

The SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced that the next Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) will be officially celebrated on July 8, 2022. The date will mark the thirteenth consecutive commemoration in what is now an annual holiday to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.

Intended to honor the classics of the past and the future, the U.S. Congress helped launch CCAD by passing Resolutions each year since 2010 at the SAN’s request. The previous resolutions were sponsored by co-chairs of the SAN-supported Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus. These Congressional leaders are strong advocates for the automotive hobby in Washington, D.C., and recognize the integral role collector cars have played in fostering our nation’s appreciation for the automobile’s unique place in our history.

In preparation for the next celebration of the nation’s automotive heritage, enthusiasts and related businesses are already planning a wide range of automotive festivities to commemorate the occasion. The SAN will again maintain and publicize a list of scheduled events to commemorate America’s time-tested love affair with the automobile at semaSAN.com/CCAD.

Whether public or private, plan and submit the details of your automotive-inspired July celebration at no cost using the link. The CCAD online tools accommodate both traditional in-person and web-based events. Those planning to pay tribute with a virtual gathering (online event, livestream, digital gallery, etc.) are welcome to provide details for inclusion on the SAN website. Participating organizers will be awarded a copy of the Congressional resolution for display at their registered event. If you are unable to celebrate on July 8, the SAN encourages events to be scheduled throughout the month of July 2022.
