For quite a while now, we have been hoping to be a part of a Shelby or Ford specific meet in the Chicagoland area. thanks to SAAC Windy City Chapter member Larry Ballard, it is going to happen this weekend. Larry has made special arrangements with The Autobahn out in Joliet and he will host what will be the First Annual Windy City Shelby meet this Saturday, May 11, sponsored by Z-Tech 3M Window Tinting of Naperville. This is geared up to be a relaxed, fun day with none of the competitive aspects that sometimes take the fun out of an event. The response has been excellent and we know that the awesome 1965 Shelby GT-350 owned and shown by legendary racer Bobby Rahal at the MCACN show last November in our Shelby Snakepit is among the cars you will see. Several Cobra’s are also expected along with a variety of GT-350’s and GT-500’s.

The show is open to vintage and modern Shelby automobiles and they will also have an area open to Shelby clones and tributes. The idea is to have fun and share the passion for all things Shelby and Shelby related! We will be set up with our EZ-Up, talking about MCACN and of course, looking for Shelby’s for the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, November 23-24. The Autobahn Country Club is the Premier Motorsports club with two outstanding road courses, a huge paddock area and over 350 acres of gently rolling countryside. This is literally, the ultimate setting for this event! If you have never been to The Autobahn, this is an excellent opportunity. The event is open to the public and has plenty of parking for you and your truck and trailer. Entry for participants and spectators is just $5, and spectator parking is also conveniently located nearby. Larry also tells me that they have a great Café onsite, which will be open all day. Gates open at 9 am and the official times for the event are 10 am – 3 pm.

Whew...lot’s of things happening!

Muscle Car Adventures Sponsored by Nickey Registry

We are also pleased to announce another exciting new event that we will be supporting. Ed Saari, formerly of Bloomington Gold, has assumed the position of Director of Special Events for the Chula Vista Resort in the Wisconsin Dells. In addition to managing the long running Corvette Adventures tour that takes place in a few weeks, Ed has joined forces with Nickey to present an all new event for those of us who like to drive our Muscle Cars called Muscle Car Adventures. This event will take place September 27-29 and is sure to be a lot of fun, “because there are no straight roads in Wisconsin, the drive is sometimes better than the destination!” MCACN Sponsor Nickey Registry will be the Title Sponsor for the Muscle Car Adventures tour, and they will be participating with several of their Gen 5 Nickey Super Cars. Check out the press release introducing this cool event; Be sure to put this on your calendar now and sign up to be a part of the action. For more information, go to and we hope to see you there!


Registration for the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show is now open for cars and automotive vendors and all four of our Host Hotels are offering great deals for our participants and spectators. It may seem like November is a long way off, but believe me, it will be here before we know it!

Next week we head to Indianapolis for Dana Mecum’s Spring Classic. Over 2,000 cars will cross the block along with a wide variety of Road Art and also the incredible collection of Grumpy Jenkin’s Memorabilia. More about that in next weeks e-blast, but to see what will be offered, go to

Hope to see you soon!
