Mecum Auctions



This week we get the opportunity to enjoy an awesome Mecum Auction while spreading the word about the upcoming Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show right in our own backyard. This may not be the biggest Mecum Auction of the year, but with over 1,000 cars, trucks, motorcycles and prime examples of Road Art crossing the block, it is another must do event presented by our Official Title Sponsor. The auction kicks off Thursday, and we will have a display and I’ll be spreading the word onsite. We have a lot to talk about, so plan on stopping by to catch up. I will also have Pre-Sale discount tickets available for $25 per Adult, so if you want to save $5 per ticket and avoid the lines, catch up with me at the auction. The auction takes place from Thursday, October 5 through Saturday, October 7 at the Schaumberg Convention Center. For full information including complete lists of all of the offerings, go to Also be sure to sign up for the Mecum Infonet for real-time auction action.This works for all of the Mecum auctions, so this is a must do and it is totally free.




NEW MCACN MAGAZINE IS ON THE PRESS! As mentioned in our last E-blast, we have been hard at work on our new 80 MCACN annual magazine. There is so much in there, but it is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what we have in store for you when we return to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (suburban Chicago), Illinois, November 18-19. With over 500 cars already confirmed and over 400 being shown in Chicago for the first time, the show is incredibly fresh. In fact, we have over 100 cars that are being shown for the very first time anywhere! Seriously, we’d need a phone book size magazine to cover everything we have joining us this year. Whew...what a show! We will start mailing October 15, so if you are on our mailing list now, you will be getting yours in a few weeks. If you are not on our mailing list, (or not sure) sign up before 10-10 to make sure you get ours. The magazine is FREE, and it’s a keeper, so sign up now. Special Thanks go out to our Creative Director, Mike D’Alessio for working with me to make sure this is our best MCACN magazine to date!


MORRIS SHOW AND SWAP SUNDAY; We will also be hitting the huge Morris, Illinois Lions Club Fall Classic car show and swap meet this Sunday, October 8. I’ll have a display set up in the swap area, so look for the MCACN banners. I’ll have Pre-Sale discount tickets along with some past event t-shirts at super special prices. I also have some really cool MCACN hoodies for those cool fall days. Help us spread the word by wearing some MCACN wearable's, and look cool doing it! For info on the Morris Lions show and swap, Click here. This is always a great way to wind down the summer show season and shift gears into MCACN mode.
