8th annual Collector Car Appreciation Day set for July 14 2017
The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) and its Automotive Restoration Market Organization (ARMO) and Hot Rod Industry Alliance (HRIA) Councils announced that the next "Collector Car Appreciation Day" will be celebrated for the eighth consecutive year on July 14, 2017. The annual event raises awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.
SEMA, the Specialty Equipment Market Association founded in 1963, represents the $39.2 billion specialty automotive industry of 6,633 member-companies. It is the authoritative source for research, data, trends and market information for the specialty auto parts industry. The industry provides appearance, performance, comfort, convenience and technology products for passenger and recreational vehicles.
SEMA and its councils will once again seek a Congressional resolution to recognize the day's significance. The industry endeavors to preserve our nation's automotive heritage while providing well-paying, high-skilled jobs nationwide. Intended to celebrate the classics of the past and the future, Collector Car Appreciation Day is a singular tribute to the collector car industry and the millions of hobbyists it supports.
SEMA will maintain and publicize a list of scheduled events to commemorate America's time-tested love affair with the automobile. Individuals, car clubs and business owners interested in publicizing events should contact Colby Martin, Director of the SEMA Action Network (SAN), at 909/978-6721 or firstname.lastname@example.org
