Province of Manitoba Proclaims July 14, 2017 as “Collector Car Appreciation Day”


Thanks to the efforts of the Manitoba Association of Auto Clubs, the Manitoba Minister of Sport, Culture and Heritage issued a proclamation designating July 14, 2017 as “Collector Car Appreciation Day” in the province.  Manitoba joins several provinces, states and cities in the U.S. that have officially recognized the celebration.  In 2017 the U.S. Senate passed Senate Resolution 507 at the SEMA Action Network’s (SAN) request to acknowledge the day’s significance in raising awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.


In the previous sevenyears, thousands of enthusiasts in the U.S and Canada have gathered at car cruises, parades and other events to celebrate our nation’s automotive heritage.  By taking part in these events around the country, these automotive enthusiasts and related businesses have ensured that their passion was honored and recognized.


There is still time to get involved.  Individuals, car clubs and business owners have been registering their gatherings for inclusion on the SAN website at this link. However you choose, please pay tribute to our hobby’s special day by holding or attending a celebration near you. Encourage others to follow suit. Let’s get those cars and trucks out of the garage and onto the road!


Please submit the details of your celebration .  For questions, contact SAN Director Colby Martin at 909-978-6721 or You may also download the official logo and flyer from the homepage and help promote this special day.
