Lawmakers Express Support for Collection and Restoration of Collector Vehicles
The SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced that the latest Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) will be officially celebrated on July 8, 2022. The date marks 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.
The U.S. Senate passed Senate Resolution 690 (S. Res. 690) at the request of the SAN recognizing July 8, 2022, as Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD). A similar
resolution was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives (H. Res. 1201). The date marks the 13th commemoration of what has become an annual event to celebrate and raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.
The two resolutions were introduced by co-chairs of the SEMA-supported Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus. S. Res. 690 was sponsored by Senate Co-Chairs Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) and Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) while House Co-Chair Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL) sponsored H. Res. 1201. These Congressional leaders are strong advocates for the automotive hobby in Washington, D.C. The Caucus is an informal, non-partisan member organization that pays tribute to America’s ever-growing love affair with the car, collectible vehicles, and motorsports.
