Collector Car Appreciation Day

Great news, as a result of the Specialty Vehicle Association of BC request;  the Province of British Columbia has issued a Proclamation declaring July 8, 2017 and the month of July 2017 as Collector Car Appreciation Day and Month.  We are extremely happy to see this program continue, this is the fourth year and the enthusiasm continues to grow, some groups already have plans in place for 2017. Some say why, well it recognizes car enthusiasts, and their hobby  for what they give back to the community through charities, volunteering, helping the less fortunate, and the economic value it brings to their communities. Also introduces the hobby to new car enthusiasts allowing them to grow into a rewarding hobby.

Giving credit where it is due

Special Thanks to lifelong Car Enthusiast and long-time SVABC member, dating back to the late 70’s, Keith Jackman. Keith championed the Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) program request in 2013 in preparation for the Proclamation in 2014. We worked together on the justification and he continues to play an active role.  Keith’s career includes many positions one of which was Superintendent of Motor Vehicles, so he has a vast knowledge of regulations and policies.  

The SVABC will place your Collector Car Appreciation Day event information on the SVABC Web site.  Please submit to Bob Kelly   membership@sva.bc.ca  for posting
