Cherry Hill, NJ (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
July 12 marks the fourth year in a row the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) has secured federal acknowledgement of “National Collector Car Appreciation Day (NCCAD),” an annual opportunity to recognize and generate awareness for the collector car hobby. American Collectors Insurance (http://www.AmericanCollectors.com) has partnered with Rides.com to commemorate the occasion at its Cherry Hill, NJ headquarters with a night of cool rides and hot rods.
Introduced by the Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus Co-Chairs, Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) and Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), NCCAD celebrates the role that classic car restoration and collection plays in our society. Numerous organizations nationwide are coordinating local cruises and events to help raise awareness of the hobby. American Collectors will be among those celebrating and is set to host a free collector car event at its Cherry Hill, NJ headquarters on Friday, July 12 from 4PM-7PM. Event highlights include an appearance by the NJ Chapter of the National Corvette Caravan, local charities with ties to the hobby, and an array of classics from antiques to exotics.
“We are always looking for ways to support the growing collector car hobby and our annual NCCAD event is a great way to do so,” said Laura Packard, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for American Collectors Insurance. “This year we’ve truly seen how strong and resilient the hobby is after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. The passion collector car enthusiasts have towards the hobby is extraordinary and we look forward to meeting hobbyists, hearing their stories, and supporting local charities at this year’s event.”
Local charities such as The Road Home, a non-profit organization that helps veterans find training and employment opportunities in the automotive restoration industry, and Carz ’N Toyz, established in 2011 for the purpose of collecting toys for children in the pediatric ward of South Jersey’s Virtua Hospital, will be celebrating NCCAD 2013 along with American Collectors.
