Stettler recognizes Collector Car Day

Stettler’s collector car community plays an economic and social role: Mayor

The Town of Stettler proclaimed July 13 as Collector Car Appreciation Day.

Collector Car Appreciation Day recognizes the financial and cultural benefits auto enthusiasts bring to their communities.

“The automobile has made a significant contribution to society over the last 100 years, increasing mobility, commerce and economic growth,” Stettler Mayor Sean Nolls said in the proclamation.

“In Stettler, classic auto enthusiasts meet regularly at public venues to share the history behind their restored vehicles. Stettler’s collector car community plays an economic and social role in our town through car shows where proceeds are directed to local charities.”

Participating the proclamation were Malcolm Fischer from the Central Alberta Vintage Auto Club, Laurie Tait of Stettler Car Club, Stettler Mayor Sean Nolls and vintage car collector Dave McCourt of Stettler with his Tin Lizzie, 1927 Ford Model T, which he affectionately calls “Liz.”

The Specialty Vehicle Association of Alberta (SVAA) is a not-for-profit organization run by volunteers dedicated to preserving and restoring antique, vintage, collector and specialty vehicles. SVAA started Collector Car Appreciation Day.
