NCM Hosts Collector Car Appreciation Day – July 8, 2011

Early July will see a new event come to the National Corvette Museum, in Bowling Green, Kentucky. On Friday, July 8, the museum will celebrate Collector Car Appreciation Day with a new event in their annual calendar.

You are invited to join them for a free car cruise-in, vendor booths, digital scavenger hunt, seminars and a parade to downtown Bowling Green for a car display, dining, shopping and Hot Rods baseball game! Museum tour admissions will be reduced for anyone driving to the museum in their collector car.

The museum will also have several door prizes at the event, including a Holley carburetor, a set of Goodyear tires and gift cards from O’Reilly Auto Parts. Online registration is available via the event web page.

Last year, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution declaring July 9 as Collector Car Appreciation Day, spurred on by the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) and its Automotive Restoration Market Organization. The tradition is being carried on this year across the country.

Additional information on Collector Car Appreciation Day activities is available at the SEMA web site, including a state by state listing of events.

The National Corvette Museum was established as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit foundation with a mission of celebrating the invention of the Corvette; preserving its past, present and future; and educating the public about the Corvette.
