A wide range of automotive events are held on the second Friday in July to honor Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) on the month’s second Friday. At the request of the SEMA Action Network (SAN), this “holiday” has been marked each year since 2010 by a U.S. Senate Resolution recognizing that the “collection and restoration of historic and classic cars is an important part of preserving the technological achievements and cultural heritage of the United States.” As this annual event continues to grow worldwide, states, provinces, counties and cities are following suit with their own recognition. The SAN encourages participation throughout the month of July to honor the classics of the past and the future.
  • ATTEND an official vehicle-inspired event
  • HOST your own gathering or club meeting
  • Promote a HOLIDAY SALE at your business
  • DRIVE your special ride, new or old, whatever the destination
Plan and submit your July event at no cost, locate a listing near you and more on the website:

(Participating organizers will be awarded a copy of the Congressional resolution for display at each registered event.)

The bright red ‘77 Camaro Z28 (third from left) belongs to Hamilton, New Jersey’s Scott Applegate. Shot by club photographer Alex Quiles, this image shows a portion of the vehicles proudly belonging to the NJ F-Body Owners Association (NJFBOA).

Scott Applegate has been a 'car guy' since he bought his first car in high school, a ‘76 Camaro Type LT. After college, he spent 7 years in the automotive aftermarket at a major New Jersey-area tire/automotive service chain, which is when he bought his ‘67 Camaro RS. Eventually, he pursued an MBA degree and a career in finance, but his interest in cars never waned. He purchased a ‘77 Camaro Z28 to satisfy his passion until he could get to work on his ’67. Along the way, he joined up with the crew at NJ F-Body Owners Association or NJFBOA ( and took part in the Hot Rod Power Tour. He’s attended the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational and also participates in the annual Camaro Nationals in Frederick, Maryland, where he catches up with friends from for which he is an administrator.
Members of the NJFBOA meet monthly across the state to meet new folks, talk cars and even do some networking, all while seeking to play a positive role in their communities. The group works to advocate for local tracks as safe alternatives to illegal street racing and supports charitable causes such as helping local food banks. “NJFBOA also supports the work of the SEMA Action Network (SAN) and helps spread the word about legislative advocacy and how it impacts all of us in the hobby at both the state and national levels,” Applegate said. “We send a link to the SAN website in all of our newsletters to augment the information in the forum.”

The looser the waistband, the deeper the quicksand. Or so I have read.

Feather-light suspension, Konis just couldn't hold. I'm so glad I took a look inside your showroom doors.
