David Snyder Introduces “It’s Fun”...Something Really Different!

David Snyder Car Art

I’m not sure if the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals “show within a show” featuring Muscle Bicycles, Sponsored by Koolestuff
was the inspiration, but I do know that in addition to being a real car guy, long time MCACN Official Sponsor and supporter David Snyder is also a real bike guy! You see, back in the day, Dave spent some time working at his local Schwinn dealer in Ohio. Yes, he assembled a number of bikes that we all wish we owned. (OK...some of us do own them! lol). We have swapped stories about bikes for years, and I was thrilled to hear of his latest offering, “It’s Fun.”



Known for his depictions of times gone by, David's art portrays memories of growing up with cars (and now bikes!) from the '50's through the American Muscle era. He takes you down memory lane inviting you to "step right in" to his paintings and visit the past. The period architecture, signage, oil cans in the garage bay - no detail is too small-are all a part of his passion. Known for fidelity of detail he spends countless hours on research before beginning a painting.


It's Fun by David Snyder CartArt

The original painting for It’s Fun has already been sold, but the Limited Edition run of just 500 prints is available right now here. And of course, if not sold out, at the MCACN show in the David Snyder Art display. Each print is signed and numbered and measures 22” x 28”. Price is $100.00 plus shipping. I also understand that our Muscle Bike “Show within a Show” Official Sponsor, Gary Wold of Koolestuff will have these available at the upcoming Ann Arbor, Michigan Bicycle show
, Sunday, April 30.  Of course, this is just one example of David’s fine work, and no matter what make or model you prefer, whether Muscle, Exotic or even Bicycles, he has the bases covered, so take some time to check out his website and of course, his display at our show.

Pictures Needed; As most of you know, when we create promotional materials for the MCACN show, we always use either cars that have been shown with us or cars that are officially registered with us this year. We never use generic pics from the web or anything that is not actually a part of our show. With that being said, it is amazing how many people that own great cars have lousy photos. Of course, I personally invite quite a few of the cars that join us, and I nearly always have my trusty Nikon with me, but sometimes we accept cars through our online application or a referral from someone we trust. If you have entered a car or bicycle and gave us subpar pictures, we cant let everyone know about it and we aren’t likely to use it in our ads, flyers, on our facebook page or most importantly, in our new 84 page full color magazine. So if you have already signed up, please send your best pictures to, even if you already sent us something. If you haven’t signed up yet, we are now accepting applications and have in fact already processed well over 100 entries from 19 different states and Saskatchewan!

Whether it fits in with one of our Special or Invitational displays or not, if it is a prime example of massively overpowered American Muscle or is a “best of the best” Corvette or even an unusual Barn Find with a great story, we hope you will consider joining us. Since we pride ourselves in presenting a fresh show every year with minimal repeats, we give priority to vehicles that are rarely, if ever shown. To submit your entry now, click here.

(Prices increase soon)

Vendor Renewals and New Vendors; We recently sent out the Returning Vendors Same Space renewal form.

 As always, we hold same spaces for returning vendors until 4-15. After that, all remaining spots are released on a first paid basis. For new vendors, you can submit your application now by clicking here. Remember, to be a vendor with us you must be automotive related. We are not interested and will not accept any travel agencies, headset hawkers, home improvement companies or other non car related businesses, so please don’t ask!


Muscle Cars At The Strip Las Vegas 2017

Next Week; Let’s talk about Vegas, Baby! Muscle Cars at the Strip takes place April 21-23, and they are now accepting applications here.  I’ll be there!

The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals is the world’s largest all indoor specialty show devoted to Muscle Cars, Dealer-built Supercars and the finest and rarest Corvettes. We will again fill nearly 400,000 square feet of exhibit space at the beautiful Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (suburban Chicago), Illinois, just minutes from the Chicago O’Hare Airport. We will host over 500 of the best of the best along with 200 automotive related vendor spots filled to capacity. Muscle Car Review magazine recently called us “The center of the Muscle Car universe” so please plan on joining us, Saturday, November 18, and Sunday, November 19.
