We have a lot for you to do and see at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, November 22-23. Of course, it’s the cars that draw us in, but there is a whole lot more for the entire family. We have live music Saturday with Redline 7000, and Sunday with Marty “Big Dog” Mercer.

We have a “show within a show” featuring Muscle Bicycles Sponsored by Koolestuff, for the kids we have the Free Scavenger Hunt, Hot Wheels races and the Revell Models “Make and Take,” and of course there is our onsite Mopar Collectors Guide Cover Girl Model Shoot with Al Rogers/Freeze Frame Image, LLC, and a wide variety of outstanding automotive related vendors.

Did you know you can Sell your collectible car at MCACN? Well...let me tell you how. We offer two ways to offer your car to a very qualified group of potential buyers.

VIP Car Corral; This is for a select group of 10-12 outstanding cars that must be approved in advance. Last year we played host to an original unrestored 1971 Hemi ‘Cuda, several gorgeous Corvettes and a COPO Camaro to name a few. This is located in the center hall and the cars are displayed with plenty of room. We stanchion the entire perimeter and have an onsite liaison so that you can enjoy the show and don’t need to be tied to your car. If a potential buyer expresses serious interest, our liaison will give you call. We have 3-4 more spots available here at $250 per spot, and there are no additional fees.

This includes two multi-day Exhibitor passes. Click here to lock in your spot;

Standard Car Corral; This is a flat out bargain for anyone who has a cool car to sell. We bring in 18-20 cars offered for sale Saturday morning, right before the show opens, parked at the rear of the “big room” nose to tail in two rows. For a flat $100 fee, you can show your car to thousands of potential buyers and deal directly. Again, there are no additional fees and with this type of entry, you receive two multi-day Exhibitor passes. The exposure is outstanding! As of this writing, we have 6-8 remaining spots open, so better sign up now! Click here to lock in your spot;

This week we finalized our floor-plan, (thanks Ryan Brutt!) and at this point, we have just a few remaining open spots for select cars and a few more Commercial “B” spots for automotive vendors. This may be the last call as we are again well over the 500 car mark, so if you want to join us with your car or as a vendor, please sign up right now. Many of the classes are indeed full, as we limit the amount of like cars to keep the show balanced and interesting for our spectators. Let us know what you have, we might need it! I am still hoping to find a Petty/Basin Street Blue Mopar, 1964 Buick/Olds/Pontiacs and a 409 Chevy for our special displays. Cars for these special displays must be the best of the best and be ready to provide full no excuses documentation. We also have openings for more Muscle Bikes, so c’mon down and join the fun!


SOME NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS; The Countdown is on and we are down to the final month of preparations. Since there is only myself and Vicki answering phone calls, it is always best to e-mail with any questions or concerns as we both constantly monitor my e-mail, and it is much easier and faster to get you the answers you want quickly.

 The Crown Plaza Hotel in Rosemont Illinois

HOTELS; The DoubleTree O’Hare, (aka party central) is indeed completely sold out. We do not have any secret extra rooms on hold, as we have already filled each and every one of them! The Embassy Suites O’Hare has a few more King Suites as of this writing. The Crowne Plaza O’Hare and the aLoft have Double/Doubles and Kings available now, but don’t wait! All four of these hotels will be full of MCACN participants and spectators, so if you haven’t already, book your room now to be in the middle of the action and close to everything you and your family could ever want. Click here for direct links for special MCACN rates and perks at our Official Host Hotels;


Whew...what a week! Soon we will host our annual local employee staff meeting. We discuss with our key staff members ways to improve the show, and we bounce around idea’s of how we can make things better and more efficient. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, we would love to hear them. Please e-mail me at and we’ll discuss them.


The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals is the world’s largest specialty show devoted to Muscle Cars, Dealer-built Supercars and the finest and rarest Corvettes, dubbed “The Pebble Beach of Muscle Cars” by Muscle Car Review magazine. We fill nearly 400,000 square feet of all indoor exhibit space with over 550 cars and 200+ automotive related vendor booths at the beautiful Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (suburban Chicago) Illinois. The show takes place Saturday, November 22, from 9 am – 9 pm and Sunday, November 23, from 9 am – 5 pm. Title Sponsor; Mecum Auctions. Presenting Sponsor; Bill Stasek Chevrolet.
