Collector Car Appreciation Day - Postcard Friendship Friday # 19
This year, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution naming July 9 as the first Collector Car Appreciation Day.
SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) lobbyists were behind the effort, hoping for a grassroots groundswell to propel the day forward. SEMA will be listing Collector Car Appreciation Day events in cities and towns around the U.S, with the idea July 9 will take on the weight and importance of such holidays as Mother's Day and Thanksgiving.
Politicians have set aside July 9, to recognize "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."
Anita Lienert, Correspondent for Inside Line says, "Guess all you really need are a couple of classic cars, a parking lot and some lawn chairs to get this thing off the ground in your neighborhood."
