VINTAGE CERTIFICATION PROGRAM PROMOTES PRESERVATION, NOT RESTORATION AT MCACN
One of the primary goals of the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show is to showcase
the world's rarest and most sought after Muscle Cars, Dealer Built Supercars and
Corvettes and their owners, in an enjoyable and easily accessible setting. Each year we
strive to "raise the bar" and keep things interesting and unpredictable.
With that being said, this week we want to tell you that not all of the cars you will see at the MCACN show are "trailer queens" or fresh from the resto shop. Our Vintage Certification Program, sponsored by Frank Badalson's American Performance LLC and led by MCACN Member Steve Shauger, promotes Preservation, not Restoration. Steve and the Vintage Certification team inspect unrestored original cars inside, outside and underneath. They document build techniques and study exactly how our favorite Muscle Cars and Corvettes left the assembly lines. Our Vintage Certification team is made up of some of the country's foremost acknowledged and respected marque authorities that join us from all over the USA.
*To provide recognition and status for the unrestored Vehicles, and to encourage owners
to display and retain these benchmark cars in their present unrestored state.

These time capsules provide us with factory processes finishes and assembly methods and
our program is a repository for the serious restorers and hobbyists so all can benefit.
