Collector Car Appreciation Day is almost here, and with it comes a lot of weekend car shows that you can attend to promote your auto upholstery shop.
Since 2010, a U.S. Senate Resolution requested by SEMA has marked the second Friday of July as a national holiday for car collectors. This year, the day falls on July 8.
The resolution states 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.”

Take advantage of the day to meet potential clients and show them what you can do. Some shops do this by renting a booth or putting their shop’s project car on display. Others hand out fliers or bring along a “look book” full of photos of their best work to show collectors.
Whichever you choose, start planning now for a fun and productive day!
