The second Friday of July is National Collector Car Appreciation Day!
In celebration, Hagerty’s Insurance set up a retro gas station in Beverly Hills. Car hops serving coffee and donuts were a hit while attendants cleaned windshields. Full service flashbacks abounded as smiling, happy people pumped gas at vintage-correct prices for your vehicle. My 1951 pickup came in at ten gallons for $2.70 total bill.
Hagerty’s first event like this was staged in Birmingham, Michigan, two years ago. Hagerty’s Jonathan Klinger said, “We had every retired auto worker in the county lined up down the street for blocks in a sea of Mustangs and Camaros."
Hats off to Hagerty’s for helping the lot of us celebrate National Collector Car Appreciation Day!
