CARTECH BOOKS TO HOST LINDA VAUGHN AT THE MCACN SHOW!
When it comes to notable ladies in the World of Motorsports, Linda Vaughn will always be at the top of the list. Certainly one of the most loved and recognized people in our hobby, there is no denying that many of us had posters of Lovely Linda on the wall! With her big smile and extremely approachable demeanor, she has brought smiles to many generations of Race and Muscle Car enthusiasts for many years.
In late October, a brand new book titled The First Lady of Motorsports, Linda Vaughn will be released by CarTech Books. Now this book is special, because it is actually written by Linda along with Rob Kinnan. You know there are going to be some great stories, and the list of contributors is like the who’s who of Motorsports. It includes Don Garlits, Danica Patrick, George Follmer, Shirley Muldowney, Don Prudhomme, Mario Andretti and our good friend Courtney Hansen, to name just a few. (and YES...Courtney will be joining us at MCACN this year too!)
We have had the honor of hosting Linda at MCACN several times since our inception. Remember when she climbed up onto the big platform on the back of The Brothers Collection 1969 Hurst/Olds convertible for the Official Unveiling? We are pleased to announce our friends at CarTech will be bringing her back to our show to give hugs and sign her new book. Linda will be in the Car Tech Books display in the “big” room, both Saturday and Sunday along with Rob Kinnan. And to make things even better, they will also be bringing in additional authors, which we will talk about in the upcoming months. Thanks go out to Wes Eisenschenk and the entire CarTech Books crew for making this happen. Additional authors along with signing times will be announced soon and posted on our website, so stay tuned!
We will be attending Dana Mecum’s 29th Original Spring Classic Auction in Indianapolis May 17-21 with an onsite display to talk about MCACN. Dana tells us they have just a few more openings for consignments, so if you have a prime example of American Muscle you are considering selling, call their offices now to lock in your spot. And of course, if you are in the market to buy, the Spring Classic is the place to be. Commission rates start as low as 5% with different positions available for all budgets and all types of vehicles. Call (262) 275-5050 to speak with a consignment agent today. I know that among the nearly 2,000 offerings, one of our MCACN Members will be offering three of the finest Buick Stage 1 convertibles ever to roll across an auction block, including two that were featured at MCACN!
Planning for the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show has kicked into high gear. Car entries are coming in faster than ever, and once again, the quality of the entries will allow us to continue to “raise the bar” as I often say. We are already close to sold out of Commercial “A” (big room) space. Please don’t hesitate to submit your car entry or sign up for your automotive related only vendor space. We are always looking for the best of the best and the rarest of the rare, whether they fit into one of our special displays or not, so let’s hear about what you have. We are entering our 8th year now, and it gets better every year!
The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals is the world’s largest all indoor specialty show devoted to the finest examples of American Muscle and the best 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. The show will take place Saturday, November 19, from 9 am – 9 pm, and Sunday, November 20,
from 9 am – 5 pm. See over 500 prime cars, nearly 100 Muscle Bicycles and over 200 automotive related (only) vendor spots filling the building to capacity. We have negotiated great rates and special perks at FIVE area hotels, so click here to book your rooms now and be in the middle of all of the action.
Hope to see you soon at the Mecum Spring Classic or one
of the other great events that are coming up!
