Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) is an annual celebration to raise awareness of the role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.

The day was first recognized on July 9, 2010 and officially designated by U.S. Senate resolution 513 (S. Res. 513), sponsored by Senators Jon Tester (D-MT) and Richard Burr (R-NC) of the Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus. Senators Tester and Burr have been strong advocates for the automotive hobby in Washington, and the resolution reaffirms their understanding of the cultural importance of collector cars. The Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus is an informal, non-partisan group that pays tribute to America’s ever growing love affair with the car and motorsports. The Caucus recognizes the integral role collector cars have played in fostering our nation’s appreciation for motorsports.

In subsequent years, the second Friday in July has continued to be selected for CCAD:

● July 8, 2011 (S. Res. 154)
● July 13, 2012 (S. Res. 452)
● July 12, 2013 (S. Res. 176)
● July 11, 2014 (S. Res. 493)
● July 10, 2015 (S. Res. 196)
● July 8, 2016 (S. Res. 507)
● July 14, 2017 (S. Res. 215)
● July 13, 2018 (S. Res. 574 / H. Res. 980)

Over the years, states, counties, cities and Canadian provinces have joined the U.S. Senate by passing their own proclamations and resolutions in support of this special day.
