Collector Car Appreciation Day is tomorrow, July 11th and we know there are events going on all over the country. Check out the story below to link to SEMA's official list, but if you're attending an event, or just want to share your favorite collector car, e-mail us or visit us on Facebook.  We will share the photos and stories here on the site, and on our social media channels. Have other car shows to share? Send us your description and photos to [email protected]!  This week we bring you news of a stolen car, Tex Smith's thoughts on the age of electronic publishing, a private collection of hot rods in Wichita, and of course the best in shows, cruises, classifieds and features!

This week's featured classified ad is a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air. It's listed at $55,000 and is located in Orange, CA.  

This Bel Air is fully restored and has less than 3,000 miles since the restoration. It's powered by a 350 small block and a Turbo 350 automatic transmission.
