    From Bob Ashton, its never too early to plan for this Event.

    "Muscle Car And Corvette Nationals; MCACN X!

    Who would of thought that a crazy group of guys would still be producing a show devoted specifically to the best of the best Muscle Cars and Corvettes, with the emphasis on the 60's and 70's?

    Well...we are now well into preparations for our 10th Anniversary show, November 17-18, 2018. never stops!

    We have been working on several of the special displays for over a year now, and we would love to hear what YOU would like to see in 2018.

    As a preview, allow me to announce a few of the Invitational displays;

    Scat Pack vs. Rapid Transit System; this is the "big one" that you will see up front, with Plymouth RTS cars on the left and Dodge Scat Pack cars on the right!

    Class of 1968 50th Anniversary Display.

    Oldsmobile W Machines; Dan V. aka PostSedan will chime in on this one, as it is unlike any that we have previously hosted and we have some very special features happening.

    Nickey Gasser Invitational. You have seen a few of the wild straight axle Gassers that have come out of Nickey Performance over the past few years, now see an entire display devoted to them. Hosted by Nickey Performance along with John Tinberg and the crew that build them

    1968 Hurst Drag Cars; using the "display within a display" theme, much like what we did with the '67 Z28 invitational, this will spotlight the Hurst built drag cars of 1968 as part of our Class of 1968 Invitational; featuring the Hurst S/S Hemi Darts and the Hurst S/S Hemi Barracuda's. Hosted by Jim Kramer, you will see restored and originals along with some very special guests.

    Original Owners & High Mileage Muscle Invitational. We have had so much fun with original owners, we want to encourage their participation. If you are an original or long term owner of some prime factory muscle or C1/C2 or C3 Corvette, or have driven your muscle car or Corvette over 100,000 miles and it still shows nicely, please consider joining us for this one.

    Returning Special Displays; with new (old) cars, of course!

    Barn Finds and Hidden Gems. Again, a whole new crop hosted by Automotive Archeologist Ryan Brutt.

    Mustang & Shelby Pinnacle competition. Launched in 2016, this is for the best of the best that have already achieved both SAAC and MCA Top Tier awards. Hosted by Bob Perkins, Rick Campbell and Jim Cunningham.

    Vintage Certification, Presented by Frank Badalson's American Performance, LLC. You guys know all about this one! Hosted by Steve Shauger.

    Muscle Bicycles, Presented by Koolestuff.

    Triple Diamond display and competition, Sponsored by Corvette Central. For Corvettes that have already achieved NCRS Top Flight and Bloomington Gold certification. Truly the best of the best!

    Corvette Legends, Sponsored by Dr. Pete Gimenez/Corvette Legends; Featuring the L/88 Corvettes of 1968 and 1969 this year.

    Studebaker Legends III; Again, a whole new group and a whole new theme for these factory supercharged beasts. This year we will feature a very special man that has played an incredibly important role in putting these cars on the Muscle Car map. Hosted by Eddie George and his family.

    Pure Stock Muscle Car Drag Race display. Again, with a whole new group of PSMCDR cars, hosted by Donnie Brass.

    Of course, this is just the beginning and more will be announced as we lock in details and cars.

    If you have an idea or would like to coordinate a special display, please let me know; It is a lot of work and we welcome assistance from those who are willing to give 100% to helping us maintain our status as being the best Muscle Car event in the world, and as always, keeping things fresh and interesting.

    The show returns to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (suburban Chicago) Illinois, November 17-18, 2018.

    Official Host Hotel information and direct booking links will be posted right after the holidays.

    Please let us know what YOU would like to see, and if you are interested in coordinating a special display, we are all ears!
