Today Is National Collector Car Appreciation Day

The automotive revolution has come a long way over the past century. With the birth of this industry came a new culture in automotive restoration and collecting, a hobby with consistent growth over the past five decades to the point where it supports countless businesses and employs even more. As such, the U.S. Senate Resolution recently designated July 9 as National Collector Car Appreciation Day to ensure that the growth of this American pastime continues. In recognition of this day, collectors and enthusiasts will be hosting events and car shows throughout the country. From car cruises to club gatherings, enthusiasts will be out in full force to show their support of their passion.

AMSOIL lends support to this market through sponsorships of the AMSOIL Street Rodder Road Tour and the National Street Rod Association (NSRA). Both are an integral part of the automotive collector and restoration market, and both play a role in keeping the culture alive. AMSOIL also offers high-zinc Premium Protection Motor Oils in 10W-40 and 20W-50 to keep the engines in these classic vehicles running at peak performance.

If you get a chance, find an event near you and show your support of this American custom. Whether you own your own rod and take it on the road, or you're a spectator at a local car show, be sure to get out and see a piece of American history.
