For the past 7 years we have been celebrating National Collector Car Appreciation Day. This year we co-hosted the 8th annual event as a Hot Rod Barbecue at Cambra Speed Shop in Orange, CA.
We were fortunate to have a record crowd with an estimated 200 people showing up for the Friday afternoon event. Cambra Speed Shop was open for tours and hosted the Hot Dog and Hamburger BBQ. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we ran out of food TWICE! Some big eaters here in So Cal. Blacktop Magazine hosted the raffle table with prizes from MYCHANIC, Magnaflow, Mitzi and Co, Meguiar’s and MORE! We look forward to this event every year and thankful for the SEMA Organization in their efforts to promote our hobby.
The SEMA Action Network (SAN) presented the idea to the Nation’s Senate in 2010. Intended to celebrate the classics of the past and the future, the U.S. Senate has helped launch CCAD by passing Resolutions each year at the SAN’s request. The previous resolutions were sponsored by Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) and Senator Jon Tester (D-MT). The Senators have been strong advocates for the automotive hobby in Washington, D.C., and recognize the integral role collector cars have played in fostering our nation’s appreciation for the automobile’s unique historical place in our history.
