Owner; Charles Lingenfelter, North Carolina
Free Seminars and Presentations and So Much More!
If you have been to the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, you know there are many reasons to attend and lots to see. Well, if you haven’t been to the show and may be on the fence, let me tell you about some other things we have going on, in addition to the 500+ cars, the many automotive only vendors and great things to do for the kids to convince you.
FREE Seminars and Presentations; The MCACN show has clearly established itself as the place for anyone who has true passion for massively overpowered examples of American Muscle and the finest and rarest Corvettes. With that being said, we have asked a few of our good friends to share some of their knowledge at our show. We have expanded our Free Seminar series this year with several new guests, along with some that are joining us again, due to popular demand.
Bruce Shaw, Esquire; Bruce is known nationwide for his expertise in legal matters pertaining to collectible cars. He will present a Collector Car Fraud Seminar. This covers unlawful and “gray area” transactions regarding sales and purchases of collector cars to the unwary. Subject areas include internet and auction problems, engine re-stamping, numbers matching, and fraudulent advertising. Do not miss this opportunity to be well informed! Saturday at 1:00.
Brian Styles along with several special guests; Why Only One? Did you see the Unveiling of The one and only 1967 Shelby GT500 convertible at our show back in 2011? Well, after the show, owners Samantha and Brian Styles continued their quest to fill in the blanks. "Why was only one built?" That question has been asked hundreds of times over the last three decades -- ever since the 1967 Shelby G.T. 500 Convertible was first discovered in the late 1970s by Jamie Ventrella. It was only in the last 18 months, that the question was finally put to rest -- not by further scrutiny of the car, but rather by stepping back and taking a closer look at the company that built the car. What's been discovered will surprise everyone that follows the hobby -- spoiler alert: the car was never a "prototype." Saturday at 2:00.
Jim Mattison; Jim has an entirely new seminar this year titled The Chevrolet COPO Program; Behind the Scenes. Many of you think of Jim as being the Pontiac guy, as owner of Pontiac Historical Services. Did you know he also spent years working with the Chevy COPO program? Here is your chance to learn from the source! Saturday at 3:00 and Sunday at Noon.
Rusty “Tires” Small; Inside look at collector car tires. If you know me, you know how much I despise Radial T/A’s on 60’s and early 70’s Muscle Cars. Sure...they are great tires for driving, but your E-Body Mopar, Boss 429 or Corvette L/88 should be on the proper Bias Ply tires. Learn all about what is available now in reproduction tires that will provide the proper look without sacrificing safety. You will also learn about dating vintage tires and how to see if those vintage tires that look good could be a real safety hazard. Saturday at 4:00.
Jim Luikens; An Inside Look at the 60’s/70’s Supercar Dealers. As Performance Manager of Berger Chevrolet in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Jim was smack-dab in the middle of all of the action. Remember those cool magazine ads with the dashing young man in the Chevy jacket? Jim is that guy and he was one of the first to offer a full line of factory and aftermarket performance goodies right over the counter at a major dealership. As one of the most successful purveyors of High Performance, Jim will step back to those glory days with some great stories and insight...again, right from the source! Saturday at Noon and Sunday at 11:00.
Bobby Unser; Pikes Peak and Beyond; Legendary racer and Motorsports Hall of Famer and all around Ambassador of our hobby, Bobby Unser joins us Sunday (only) along with his 1969 Boss 429 powered Torino. Bobby has set countless records, not only at Pikes Peak but also in all kinds of racing. Hear what it was like to smash the record books, with a money is no object budget that assured that records would be made. There is a reason they call Pikes Peak “Unsers Peak” so plan on joining us for this up close and personal presentation, hosted by Kevin Oeste of V8TV and Presented by The Brothers Collection. Sunday at 1:00.
Celebrity Appearances; And don’t forget we have an outstanding lineup of special guests this year. Courtney Hansen of Overhaulin’ and Power Block TV fame, Lovely Linda Vaughn, “Miss Hurst Golden Shifter”, Chuck Cantwell (Mr. GT350) and Charles Handler and Trey Hansen of the new History Channel TV Show Big Easy Motors will be with us Saturday and Sunday. And of course, our Official EmCee and Head Cheese of Tomfoolery Dennis Pittsenbarger will be on hand, making sure we have fun all weekend long. And as mentioned above, we are truly honored to host Bobby Unser Sunday, who will be signing autographs and sharing stories alongside the incredible unrestored original 1969 Pikes Peak Torino.
