Collector Car Appreciation Day

July 9th is Collector Car Appreciation Day in the United States. This day raises people’s awareness of car restoration and collecting. For the first holiday, events were organized throughout the country, which were attended by thousands of people.


Collector Car Appreciation Day was sponsored by SEMA (SAN) beginning in 2009 to increase the visibility of vintage vehicles that are considered collectibles. The holiday was created to celebrate the hobby of collecting cars, which SAN has been involved with since its founding in 1997. This company also resists any factors that hinder the development of the auto restoration and collection industry. SAN develops laws that are friendly to collectors, provides a platform for 36 million vintage automotive fans, and has over 100 publications. Thanks to this company, the holiday received official status on July 9, 2010.
