The U.S. Senate passed Senate Resolution 196 (S. Res. 196) designating July 10, 2015 as "Collector Car Appreciation Day." The date marks the sixth 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.
S. Res. 196 was sponsored by Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus Co-Chairs Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) and Senator Jon Tester (D-MT). The Caucus is an informal, non-partisan member organization that pays tribute to America’s ever growing love affair with the car and motorsports.
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, the SEMA Action Network (SAN), SEMA is maintaining a list of scheduled events to commemorate the day at www.semasan.com/ccad.
