We Welcome Courtney Hansen To the MCACN Show!
Promoters like to use words like outstanding, incredible, amazing and yes...even Stellar. Of course, I am as guilty as the next guy, but I have to say, as we approach the big weekend, it is hard to contain my excitement. Yes, we really do have a Stellar lineup, and it is not limited to the cars.
Today we are pleased to announce a very special guest will be joining us. Courtney Hansen will be with us both Saturday and Sunday. Kicking things off with our thirteen (!) Première Unveilings, Courtney will be helping us pull the covers off of seven of them, starting at 9:45 with the incredible Phil Bonner Thunderbolt. From there, our good friend Kelly from Texas will step in to assist with the second Unveiling, then back to Courtney. You get the idea! I mean sure, our Official EmCee and Coordinator of Automotive Tomfoolery, Dennis Pittsenbarger may be kinda cute, but he sure isn’t Courtney or Kelly!
Courtney Hansen may be best known as the Original Co-Host of Overhaulin’
and the host of the Spike TV Powerblock.
What you may not know is that she is indeed a real “car girl” having grown up in Minnesota at her families Brainerd Raceway. (Yep...they owned it!) Never afraid to get her hands dirty, she learned all about cars and racing and was anxious to be in the middle of the action. Over the years she has owned and owns some really neat cars, and she has a real passion for massively over-powered examples of American Muscle. Make a point of meeting Courtney at the MCACN show and be sure to check out her very own brand new line of cool clothing, Auto Angel, featuring great wearable's for men, women and kids. To see what Courtney is up to, check out her new website, http://courtneyhansen.com/ Over the years I have had the pleasure of working with Courtney many times and I can tell you she is the real thing, a truly fun and passionate enthusiast. Welcome aboard, Courtney.
SHOW IS FULL and the MCACN Team is Ready! Thanks to everyone who has made the commitment to showing or vending with us. We have over 560 cars and over 120 automotive vendors and restorers joining us from across the country, and also Canada and Sweden. Our Official Sponsors are all geared up and I have to say the excitement level has never been higher. With the exception of the standard Car Corral For Sale area, all aspects of the show are now full, and we have a “stand-by” list to fill spots due to any cancellations. To be honest with you, the “stand-by” list is rather lengthy with some truly outstanding cars, so the likelihood of getting into the show at this point if you are not already registered is pretty slim. The best part is that over 500 of the cars in this years show have never been shown with us before, assuring a truly fresh and incredibly exciting show. I’ll say it again...no matter what make or model you prefer, we have the bases covered with the best of the best and the rarest of the rare, many rarely, if ever, shown to the public!
