    Not sure if this is the right place to post this, so mods feel free to move...


    We are pleased to announce The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals crew is gearing up for our 5th Anniversary show, November 23-24, 2013.

    Many thought it couldn't be done, but we have proven there is enough interest to have a true enthusiast based show for those of us devoted to Muscle Cars, Dealer-built Supercars and Corvettes. Our team is more devoted then ever to continue to "raise the bar" and produce a show for cars that are rarely, and often times never, seen by the public.

    We are a show for enthusiats, run by enthusiasts. With that being said, it is not too soon to put the big red circle around the dates on your new 2013 calandar and start planning now.

    The show will return to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (greater Chicago), Illinois. We will again host over 500 of the finest and rarest Muscle Cars, Dealer-built Supercars and Corvettes. We will also have two separate area’s for cars offered for sale. We had over 560 cars from 27 states in 2013.

    Special displays this year include the a very special gathering of Camaro Z/28's. For this we are looking not for quantity, but for the VERY BEST and Rarest examples from 1967 on. We will also host a special Anniversary Showcase display for 1963 and 1973 Super Duty Pontiac's, one for '73 Stage 1 Buick's, another for Plymouth Roadrunners and of course our Vintage Certification area for unrestored original cars and the Triple Diamond Corvette display and competition for original and restored Corvettes that have already achieved both NCRS Top Flight AND Bloomington Gold status..

    Do to the extreme popularity, we will again host the Barn Find/Hidden Gems display along with the Shelby Snakepit and Muscle BIKES displays.

    There will be additional special and invitational displays announced as we finalize details, and as always, we welcome your suggestions.

    This year we will have THREE area’s for commercial displays with spaces starting at just $200 per 10x12' spot. National and local automotive related vendors, suppliers and restoration shops are welcome.

    For general information, check out

    Of the 40,000 members of this site there were maybe two dozen hard core (nasty members) enthusiasts that paid to attend the 2012 MCACN. This show is arguably the best all brands muscle car show in the world.

    For those of us that went out to dinner together, gathered around Scott Kiehne's, Rick Griffin's, Larry Grief's and Jim Eatons impressive restorations, listened to and chatted with Phil Borris, WE all had a great time.

    I have reserved TWO $92 rooms at the CROWNE PLAZA (room # 2 for ???). (Toll free 1-800-2-CROWNE.........Group is called Muscle Car and Corvettes etc etc)
    Cancellation date is 11/19/13 so if I decide to bail, nothing lost.

    Hoping to see maybe three dozen this time around

    regards to all my friends,

    I will be attending the show again this year. I had. Great time last year. I am hoping maybe to get my 70 z28 registered for the show. It would be really cool if we could get a nasty z28 group of cars together for the show if maybe Bob Ashton would approve it. Bob if you read this please get back to me about the PM I sent you.
