We are truly honored to have many of the best automotive artists joining us annually at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show. To make it even better, we have three that step up to show their support by being Official Sponsors.
Michael Irvine and his wife Linda join us from St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada. Michael is one of North America's premier automotive artists, capturing vintage and modern muscle and sports cars in hand drawn, hand painted, high impact, vibrant watercolor. Incredibly detailed, powerful, imaginative and creative, the surrealism of Michael's work brings to life scenes that draw us in and unfold to tell a story. Continually evolving and challenging himself, Michael's diverse automotive fine art portfolio has something for the Dodge/Plymouth fan, the Ford/Mercury enthusiast and the GM collector! Michael's car art is perfect for the home, office, den, man cave and garage. There is no mistaking his style!
One of Michael’s latest releases is called “Helluva Mirage” and it fits right in with the MCACN show this year. Featuring an SRT Challenger Hellcat that is identical to the one that our friend Steve Jones is showing in our new Modern Muscle section, along with a Plum Crazy ‘71 440-6 pack Challenger R/T set against a beautiful California sunset desert setting. This will make you feel like you are right there enjoying the moment! Michael and Linda will have this one, along with a wide variety of others including several new releases at our show when we return to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, November 21-22. They will have a nice big display right on the main aisle, so make a point of checking out the latest offerings and meet Michael. I have said it before and will say it again; automotive art is the perfect gift for your favorite car freak, and getting it directly from the artist at our show ensures you are getting something he or she doesn’t already have.

MODERN MUSCLE; FORD’S NEEDED! We have received excellent response for our brand new Modern Muscle section. As you know, my goal is to host three individual blocks, each with 13 cars featuring the best of the best in Modern Muscle; one for GM, one for Mopars and one for Fords. I am pleased to announce that our GM and Mopar blocks are full, (in fact, we have a “standby” list going in case of any cancellations). What we need now are some more Ford products. We have some great Roush, Saleen and Shelbys signed up, but need four more cars to fill this block. So if you own a cool and tastefully modified example of Ford modern muscle and would like to be a part of a really cool new section at the MCACN show, please submit your entry here. Don’t let those Mopar, Chevy, Pontiac and even Cadillac folks show you up...submit your entry now! (Yes...we have an incredible CTS-V joining us that will blow you away!).
VENDOR SPACE UPDATE; We are sold out of Commercial “A” spots, but we do have a few remaining Commercial “B” spots for just $200 per 10 x 12’ space. Several are in our new Modern Muscle section, so there is an excellent opportunity for anyone that caters to this market! You must be automotive related, (absolutely no travel related or head-set hawkers allowed, so don’t bother asking!) To lock in you spot, click here.
SELL YOUR COLLECTOR CAR AT MCACN; Did you know you can offer your Muscle Car or Corvette for sale at our show? Although our VIP Car for Sale area is now sold out, we do have standard Car Corral spots available. At just $100 per spot with no additional fees, you can’t go wrong. Cars must be in nice presentable condition, no primer or project cars. To lock in your spots, click here now.
HOTEL UPDATE; If you tried to book rooms at the DoubleTree O’Hare, aka “party central” or the Embassy Suites O’Hare, you know they are now sold out. Not to worry, as I negotiated great rates and extra perks at three additional area hotels! The Crowne Plaza O’Hare is right across the street on North River Road and has a fantastic rate of $105 per night, King or Double, along with $10 daily parking for our people. The Hyatt Regency O’Hare is also convenient, being across from the show on Bryn Mawr St. and connected via the overhead walkway. Book your room at the great MCACN rate of $109 per night, with daily parking at $15. And let’s not forget the cool and ultra modern aLoft, which is behind the Crowne Plaza and right across from the new 150 store outlet mall. It is just a few blocks away, and they offer door to door shuttle service for our people to drop you off. The rate here is $115 per night and they offer a daily parking rate of $10. To book your rooms at the great MCACN rates, click here. All of these hotels are really nice and they understand what we are all about. Great hotels and excellent service at all three of them!
We are now just over 30 days away and counting! I can confidently say this will be our best show to date, no matter what make or model your prefer. Bring the whole family and be prepared to spend lots of time and wear comfortable shoes!
