MCACN TEAM ANNOUNCES 2012 INVITATIONAL AND SPECIAL DISPLAYS
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Although we just made it through the holidays, planning for the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals never stops. To continue to “raise the bar,” we work on the show all year round and we will continue to do that for many years to come. Today we would like to announce some of our 2012 Special and Invitational displays;
The Nascar Aero Wars were in full swing in the late 60’s/early 70’s and Ford, Dodge, Mercury and Plymouth took things to a new level. Flush glass, extended noses and outrageous wings became the norm. See Talledega’s, Daytona’s, Cyclone Spoilers, Superbirds and Charger 500’s in this Invitational display, coordinated by Jason Thompson and Doug Schellinger. Both street and race cars will be featured.
CLASS OF 1972 40th ANNIVERSARY DISPLAY
Yes, there were still a few true Muscle Cars offered in ‘72! You could order up a Buick GS with a 455, a Roadrunner/GTX or Charger with a 440 or a Trans Am with a 455 and Ford wasn’t ready to throw in the towel either. Yes, they are rare, but then, that is what MCACN is all about!
CLASS OF ‘62 5Oth ANNIVERSARY DISPLAY
Step back 50 years, when race on Sunday, sell on Monday became the theme of the day. Big body SD Pontiac’s, Super Stock Dodges and Plymouths and 409 Chevy’s all made a lasting impression on our youth. Drag Racing inspired many of us and today, the 1962 performance oriented cars are some of the most desirable examples of American muscle ever built. See the best of the best in this gathering.
We all know that the MCACN show is all about seeing the rarest of the rare, and High Performance convertibles were rare even when they were new. This Invitational display will feature real Hemi and 440+6 Mopar convertibles, RA III and IV Pontiacs, CJ and SCJ Ford and Mercury’s, L78 and LS6 Chevelles, Stage 1 Buick’s and more. Some of the world’s most valuable and desirable drop-tops will be on display including several one-off machines. When we say we feature the best of the best and the rarest of the rare, well...stay tuned!
CORVETTE CENTRAL TRIPLE DIAMOND GALLERY
One of the fastest growing features of our show, the Triple Diamond Corvette Gallery and Competition features only the certified best original and restored Corvettes. NCRS Top flight AND Bloomington Gold certification is required in advance, so you know you will be looking at the absolute best Corvettes in the world in this display. Sponsored by Corvette Central.
Back by popular demand and hosted by noted author/historian Colin Comer, we will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Shelby American this year, with a special emphasis on the Cobra.
THE BEE HIVE 68-71 SUPER BEE DISPLAY
Plymouth may have taken most of the spotlight with the Roadrunner, but over in the Dodge camp, they also had a “bare-bones” affordable big-block offering. The ‘68 Coronet Super Bee started as a rubber mat post body 383 or Hemi powered affordable muscle machine. Eventually it would evolve into one of the hottest performance muscle cars ever built, with its final year offering in the all new Charger body style. 383’s, 440-6’s and Hemi’s will be on display including the wild lift-off hood 69 1/2 6-pack Bees. Sponsored by The Wellborn Musclecar Museum and Hosted by Michele Dozeman.
MUSCLE CARS AND MUSCLE BIKES
This one is just plain fun! Back in 1963 Schwinn launched the original Stingray bicycles, inspired by dragsters and muscle cars. For many of us, this is where it all started! The later 60’s brought numerous manufacturers to the game and the market exploded. 1968 saw the introduction of the Krate bikes and also England’s Raleigh Chopper and things would never be the same. See an amazing array of various brand Muscle Bikes in this very special gathering.
sYc SUPERCARS AND MEMBERS DISPLAY
We are pleased to be able to provide a showcase for some of the finest dealer-built Supercars from Yenko, Gibb and others along with outstanding Muscle Cars owned by members of the www.yenko.net website. This site serves as a home for the “who’s-who” of the Muscle Car hobby, and this display is one of the most popular MCACN features.
TRANS AM TERRORS
The Trans-Am race series inspired many of the manufacturers to offer cars built to not only accelerate, but handle too. With the introduction of the Z/28 in ‘67, the gloves were off! See AAR Cuda’s, Z/28 Camaro’s, Pontiac Trans Am’s, AMC Javelins, Challenger T/A’s and more, in both race and street trim in this gathering.
This is just the beginning of what will be another outstanding world-class event for the Muscle Car, Dealer-built Supercar and Corvette enthusiast. We are now accepting applications for cars and vendors and we also have select Sponsorship opportunities. The 2012 show applications are now up on our website for both car entries and commercial and swap space.
