This is going to be another great weekend for car freaks. Surely by now everyone knows that Danica will be leading the pack in Daytona on Sunday, but there is some other great stuff going on this weekend! For the MCACN crew and the Nickey Chicago crew, we’ll be heading over to the expanded Race and Performance Expo in St. Charles, Illinois. This year, the show will open Friday, February 22 at 4:00 pm, and it is now “4 shows in 1” and will occupy three different area’s of the Pheasant Run Resort and the DuPage Expo Center. You’ll be able to check out row after row of suppliers and manufacturers and rub elbows with some of the movers and shakers of the performance industry. We will be set up in the all new Car Builders Showcase area in the St. Charles Ballroom, right next to MCACN Sponsor Nickey Chicago. We’ll have our big TV set up with all kinds of pics from past shows along with V8TV coverage from Kevin Oeste and his team. Be sure to stop by so we can tell you what we have in store for you for 2013...we will again “raise the bar” with some great cars, special displays and the absolute best sponsors and vendors. You will also enjoy seeing what Nickey Chicago is doing to make the new Camaro ZL1’s even better than they are already, which is nothing short of mind blowing! We will have some super special close-out deals on past MCACN event t-shirts and sweat shirts too. When they are gone they’re gone, so snatch ‘em up now! Visa/MC/Discover will be accepted at the show.

We will be accepting applications for cars and vendors at the RP Expo, and if you can’t make it, registration is now open through our website. (Visa/MC/Discover accepted at the show and online). Each year, we fill up and sell out quicker, and this year we are out of the gate at a record pace. With all of the outstanding national magazine coverage we have been getting, inquiries and entries are coming in at a record rate, so don’t be left out...sign up now! Early registration allows us to get the word out about what we will have in the show, and we use only officially registered entries in our promotional efforts, which includes our national print ads, facebook coverage, web coverage, billboards and our big Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals magazine. If you would like to get your car some recognition, now is the time!

Speaking of national magazine recognition, the features keep coming in. We recently received our March Muscle Car Review magazine and found outstanding coverage, (and we made it into Editor Drew Hardin’s editorial too!) and the most recent Chrysler Power magazine has cool coverage too. We truly appreciate the magazines who help us spread the word. Getting the “official thumbs up” from those in the know is always very rewarding for the entire MCACN team, who work hard all year long to put together a world-class national event that is truly like no other. To see ALL of the magazine features we know of to date, check out

Over in the “warmer” part of the country, MCACN Title Sponsor, The Mecum Auctions crew will be offering the absolutely incredible Verde Classics Museum Collection in Boynton Beach, Florida. Mecum is known for “Muscle Cars and More” and this high quality collection is the epitome of exactly that. Fran and Ron Greene will be offering over 80 cars and more than 1,000 pieces of “road art” and memorabilia, all at No Reserve. This collection consists of some prime muscle cars, plenty of 50’s and 60’s convertibles and hardtops, some national award winning cars and some gorgeous Corvettes. There are also some other interesting vehicles including several Aston Martins, a Delorean, a Dodge ‘Lil Red Express truck and even some cool vintage scooters. And then there is the  memorabilia....Whew! Check out and if you can’t make it to the auction, register to bid and/or watch online through the cool Mecum Infonet system

Another one to note over in St. Charles, Illinois is the annual Buick/Olds/Pontiac/Cadillac swap meet on Sunday, February 24th. Held at the Kane County fairgrounds, it is a mere 5-10 minute ride from the RP Expo. Although we won’t be set up there, I do plan on hitting this swap Sunday morning. I am looking for real documented 1963 and 1973 Pontiac Super Duty cars for a very special display along with other prime BOP muscle, so if you own or know of something, (like the one featured above!), please look me up. To date we have several fantastic restored and original ‘73 SD 455 Trans Ams signed up along with several 63’s. It is always a treat to see a real Super Duty up close, whether ‘63 or ‘73, so help us make this one another show stopper! for all the information on the swap.
As always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions. You can reach me via e-mail at or call 586-549-5291. Hope to see many old friends this weekend, and make some new ones!
