The SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced that the next Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) will be celebrated on July 14, 2017.  The date will mark the eighth consecutive commemoration in what is now an annual event to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.

Intended to celebrate the classics of the past and the future, the U.S. Senate has helped launch CCAD by passing Resolutions each year at the SAN’s request. The previous resolutions were sponsored by Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) and Senator Jon Tester (D-MT). The Senators 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.

A list of officially scheduled events to commemorate America’s time-tested love affair with the automobile will be posted below. Individuals, car clubs and business owners interested in publicizing events may submit the details of their July celebration at no cost using this link. For those unable to celebrate on July 14, the SAN encourages events to be scheduled throughout the month of July 2017.


  • ATTEND an official vehicle-inspired event

  • HOST your own gathering or club meeting

  • Promote a “HOLIDAY SALE” at your business

  • INVITE partnerships with nearby enthusiast-related groups

  • DRIVE your special ride, new or old, whatever the destination
