Our U.S. Senate passed Senate Resolution 176 (S. Res. 176) at the prodding of the SEMA Action Network (SAN) designating Friday July 12, 2013Â as â€œCollector Car Appreciation Day.â€Â This is the fourth annual event to help raise awareness of classic collector car owners and industries.
A list of events around the country can be found here.Â Besides car shows and cruise ins, many companies are promoting their employees to drive a classic to work.Â The folks at SEMA Action Network Â are maintaining the event list to commemorate the day and track the number of events..
Even some Canadian provinces joined individual states, cities inÂ passing similar proclamations and resolutions.Â Sounds like a good reason to go out and cruise on the 12th!
The Goodguys Rod and Custom folks kicked off their 30th anniversary in Scottsdale, Arizona this weekend.Â The first two days were hit with rain but Sunday March 10, 2013 turned out to be a postcard picture perfect day.Â While you can leave the event scratching your head at the cars that won an award; there is no denying that there are some awesome cars.Â Some of the cars are squirreled away here in the Phoenix region but many come from across the western states.Â Nice show, nice cars and nice weather.
