GREAT YEAR FOR FORDS! BOSS 351 INVITATIONAL AT MCACN
The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show is about all brands of massively over-powered American Muscle and the finest Corvettes. Of course, each year certain brands tend to come to the forefront of our show. We announced a while back that we will be hosting a special Cars of Shelby Invitational display this year that will rival last years Hemi E-Body convertible display, (think Cobra’s, One-offs, GT40’s and the rarest Shelby’s!) featuring 26 of the absolute best Shelby American automobiles ever built. Shelby’s to the left and Cobra’s and GT40’s to the right!
Those won’t be the only Ford’s and Mercury’s you’ll see at MCACN this year. We will have several Official Unveilings for Ford Muscle, including what may be the rarest and most unexpected Mercury you’ll ever see, and something very special to go along with our “Class of ‘71” Anniversary display. Over the years we played host to an incredible Boss 429 display featuring all of the production colors, and of course last years Boss 302 Invitational display. These two were coordinated by Bob Perkins along with Rick Campbell and Jim Cunningham. This year Rick will be unveiling an incredible ‘69 Shelby G.T. 500, and Bob will be joining us with his own personal Boss 351, an absolutely incredible unrestored original with a mere 1,200 miles on the odometer!
Coordinated by Rick Ybarra, Jr., we will be hosting a gathering which will feature the finest Boss 351’s in the world. You will see unrestored originals (like Bob’s), original owner cars and with any luck, we will again showcase all of the available colors. To make things even better, we are pleased to announce that Mr. Ybarra recently completed an outstanding book dedicated to the Boss 351’s titled Boss 351, A Comprehensive Owners Guide and Story. I received my copy last week and let me just say it is hands down the most complete book ever written on these cars. With well over 200 pages in an easy to use spiral-bound format, Rick covers everything from drivetrains and options to VIN information, along with a variety of owner stories, Marti reports and full information on restoring your Boss 351. There are pages of pictures and even a chapter on the ultra rare 1972 R-Code Mustangs. I especially enjoy the variety of photos with VINS and registry information on known cars. This is an absolute must have for any Boss 351 enthusiast, and Rick will be selling and signing them at the show. We are thrilled to add this “feature within a feature” to our Class of ‘71 Invitational display. If you own or know of a real Boss 351, whether stock or modified, we would love to hear from you! firstname.lastname@example.org
We are now preparing for Dana Mecums 29th Annual Spring Classic, May 17-21. We will have an onsite display, so please make a point of stopping by. I will be accepting applications for cars and automotive related vendors, or if you prefer, sign up now through our website, www.mcacn.com. We have an incredible amount of cool things locked in already and we are committed to “raising the bar” again this year. I would love to hear your thoughts and idea’s and I welcome all input.
The 8th Annual Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show will take place Saturday, November 19, from 9 am – 9 pm, and Sunday November 20, from 9 am – 5 pm. We will 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. Join us to see over 500 of the hottest massively overpowered examples of American Muscle, many rarely or ever shown to the public, along with the best automotive related only vendors and restorers.
We would like to say Happy Mothers
Day to all of the Mom’s out there.
How about taking Mom out for a cruise this weekend?
