National Print Media Gives MCACN VIII Rave Reviews

Of course, I love seeing all of the great coverage of the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show online. It seems like every year, we see more and more, and that is really rewarding and humbling. Being a bit of an “old school” guy, another thing that puts a smile on my face is getting one of my favorite magazines in my mail box and seeing print coverage. Even better is hitting my local Barnes & Noble or Walmart and seeing a bunch of magazines with MCACN coverage! Last week I stopped by B&N and have to say I was a bit overwhelmed to find FIVE different magazines on the rack with full features. Even better is knowing there are more to come. With that being said, allow me to spotlight a few of them;


Muscle Car Review March 2017

Muscle Car Review, March 2017.This one is almost a MCACN issue! On the cover is the incredible ‘70 Chevelle Pilot car that was shown with us, and on page 26 is David Beems LS6 Chevelle that was in our Vintage Certification area in 2015. There is a full feature on the outstanding ‘70 W-30 442 restored by MASCAR that stole the show, and when you flip to page 42, you’ll see “Great at 8” with some really cool pictures. Allow me to quote; “MCACN is the Center of the Muscle Car Universe.” Whew! Thanks go out to Arvid Svendsen and Drew Hardin, who are huge supporters and advocates of what we do.


Mopar Muscle May 2017

Mopar Muscle, May 2017; What could be better than a full feature on the MCACN show? How about TWO of them in one issue! Geoff Stunkard knocked it out of the park with this one, with help from Dale Mathews. First up is a feature titled “22 Coolest Mopars from MCACN” with stories and pics of each and every one of them. Then, flip over to page 70 to read “Top Drop Tops” which spotlights all 27 of the Hemi E-Body convertibles we played host to in 2015. A definite must have issue!


Hemmings Muscle Machine March 2017

Hemmings Muscle Machines, March 2017; Once again, we are truly honored to have a full feature in this awesome magazine. Titled “The Greatest Hits; There were no B sides at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals biggest show ever.” Barry Klucyk did a great job of explaining what we’re all about and Gary Gerstner added some truly outstanding photos to take it over the top. This feature has a whopping 29 different photos, so it does a great job of capturing some of the excitement that was in the air.


Performance Mopars Chrysler Power April 2017

Performance Mopars Chrysler Power, April 2017; Our friend Roland Osborne has been dealing with some pretty heavy health issues, but he made sure we got some ink by sending out Scott Smith. This one takes a different approach with a feature titled “The verdict is in with the Mopar Judge at MCACN.” You see, Scott was a part of our Mopar judging team, so in addition to some great photos, he also gives a bit of an “inside peek” at what goes on behind the scenes. Neat stuff, Scott, and get better soon, Roland!


Poncho Perfecttion February 2017

Poncho Perfection, February 2017; Hopefully by now you know our good friend Don Keefe launched a brand new Pontiac magazine last year titled Pontiac Perfection. He is doing a great job, and if you wondered if we had Pontiacs at the show, you have to see this issue! In addition to the feature story, you’ll find 30 beautiful photos of Pontiacs that were at our show. Don is a guy who “get’s it” and has been a huge supporter of what we do since our inception.

Mopar Collectors Guide April 2017

Mopar Collectors Guide, April 2017; Robert Wolf is another who “get’s it” and has been on board with us since the start. You’ll remember that before the show, MCG devoted an entire issue to cars that were preparing to show with us. Well in this issue, each and every car feature is something from our show. Several of these features were shot right onsite by Tim Costello, once again proving that if you want your car featured in a national magazine, MCACN is the place. We really appreciate the continued support, and we are already talking about what we are doing with MCG for the 2017 show. Thanks Rob Wolf and Tim Costello!

All of these features will be online on our website, along with well over 100 more full features dating back to 2009. We truly appreciate the continued support from the national media and look forward to many more years and many more features. Oh...and speaking of more features, look for the next TWO issues of Muscle Car Review for features on our Vintage Certification (April issue) and our Barn Finds and Hidden Gems, (May issue) another from our friends from north of the border at V8 Passion and also Bone Stock magazine, and Mustang coverage from Mustang Monthly. Please show your support by subscribing to these awesome magazines and letting them know we all appreciate the coverage. Congrats to all who received some well deserved attention.

The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals is the world’s largest all indoor specialty show devoted to Muscle Cars, Dealer-built Super Cars 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. Applications are now being accepted for cars and automotive only vendors, and Official Host Hotels are now accepting reservations with some really great deals here;
