Collector Car Appreciation Day


Friday, July 14, 2017 is Collector Car Appreciation Day and we are celebrating with car rides and frozen treats!

This year marks the eighth consecutive commemoration of an event to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society. Appreciation and preservation of the automobile is what the Museum’s mission is all about! Join us from 11 AM to 1 PM for complimentary ice cream treats and rides in the AACA Museum’s collection vehicles.

A wide range of automotive events are now held on the second Friday in July to honor CCAD. At the request of the SEMA Action Network (SAN), this “holiday” has been marked each year since 2010 by a U.S. Senate Resolution recognizing that the “collection and restoration of historic and classic cars is an important part of preserving the technological achievements and cultural heritage of the United States.” As in years past, a wide range of automotive events will be held to commemorate the occasion. As this annual event continues to grow worldwide, states, provinces, counties and cities are following suit with their own recognition. SEMA encourages participation throughout the month of July to honor the classics of the past and the future.
