For the 5th consecutive year, Collector Car Appreciation Day will be held the second Friday in July. It just so happens to also fall on Friday July 11th – the opening day of the Goodguys 17th PPG Nationals in Columbus!
Special festivities are planned in Columbus to honor this special day in our industry. CCAD is now an annual event to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society. Back in 2009, The U.S. Senate helped launch Collector Car Appreciation Day by passing resolutions each year at the SEMA Action Network’s request.
The previous resolutions were sponsored by Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) and Senator Richard Burr (R-NC). Senators Tester and Burr have been 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 historical place in our history.
