Any day is a good day to drive a classic car, but Friday July 14th will be exceptionally good. That is the day that SEMA will celebrate their annual Collector Car Appreciation Day. This will mark the eighth year that SEMA seeks to acknowledge the vital impact classic cars and their owners contribute to America.
The US Senate has passed resolutions noting the collector car celebratory day each year. SEMA is encouraging collector car owners to set up special cruises or events to mark this day (or even the whole month of July, since many might not be able to participate on a workday.)
So expect an interesting view in the employee parking lots this Friday. And if you don’t have a classic to drive consider these three iconic cars. They’ll always be popular and cool
The truly iconic looking roadster has been celebrated on US stamps and is an eye catcher, although driving “topless’ in July’s heat may not be the best choice. A roadster by definition has no top and no side windows. It was designed to be fast and look cool. Mission accomplished.
Hard to go wrong with any year of America’s sportscar. To down weather is here and the Corvette’s are meant for the open road.
The display of chrome and sharp angles is a classic look for the late 50’s and reflects our interest in the upcoming Space Age. The 1957 model was the last year of the “tri-five” Chevys and some might say it was the best of all three years. There are always a ready supply of parts for these Chevys and plenty of reference materials. Plus restored vehicles are readily available.
Some may say that any day is a good day to drive a classic. Plus driving these cars are good for them and you! So take a cruise in a classic today and everyday!
