With Mothers Day fast approaching, we thought it would be a great time to talk about our very special “Leading Lady” awards, Presented by MK Insurance. Each year we like to recognize the truly outstanding cars that are owned and maintained by ladies. And as you can see with the above 2014 entry, sometimes even raced! To qualify for these special awards, proof of ownership must be submitted to us in advance with copies of either the title or registration showing the female owner (or co-owner). Yes...to be eligible you must prove that you really do own the car! Tamra Perto, CEO of MK Insurance, will personally present the beautiful Crystal awards to one lucky owner for each of the following makes; General Motors, Ford/Mercury, Mopar and one additional award per Tamra’s choice. The actual award is a beautiful Crystal Art piece, unlike any of our other awards. It is something you will really be proud to show off!

Each year, we get more and more cars that really are owned, shown, maintained and raced by female owners. Last years award winners were Roberta Vasilow with her ‘70 Buick GSX that was in the Pure Stock Muscle display, (and YES....she really does drag race it!), Staci Walters-Rossi with her 1954 Corvette, (which was also Vintage Certified), Carol Curry with her beautiful Catalina 421 Wagon that was featured in our Class of ‘63 display and Deneille Armstrong, who showed the 1962 Chrysler 300 in memory of her Mother Anne, in our Original Owners display. By the way; Anne spent a considerable amount of time racing that 300 “back in the day!” Whew...what an incredible group of cars.

For the 2014 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, we have already received some awesome contestants for the Leading Lady awards. In addition to the above Dart, Samantha Styles will be showing several Cobra Jet 428 Cougar convertibles in our “Cat House” display, along with an L89 Chevelle SS convertible in our L89 Invitational and there are others!

     At the MCACN show, in addition to our Leading Lady awards, we offer a wide variety of 1,000 point judging opportunities for just about any kind of Muscle Car and Corvette, whether factory stock, (Concours or Triple Diamond), modified or stock but not restored to factory stock, (Street Stock/Modified), Unrestored, (Vintage Certification) and also our MCACN exclusive Day 2 Concours for cars that use authentic period correct parts and modifications. (think Nickey/Mr. Norms/Yenko etc). We also know that many don’t need or want to have their cars judged, but you still want to be a part of the show, so we offer our Non Comp/Pick Eligible entry. For this, there is none of the “regular” judging, meaning our judges do not look at your car, but you are eligible for a number of special awards, and also the many Celebrity and Sponsor Picks. We handed out over seventy Special Awards last year, and each and every car or bike on our show floor is eligible for these awards, whether judged or not. We have seen everything from near perfect restorations to ridden hard and put up wet Barn Find/Hidden Gems go home with some of these prestigious (and fun) awards! To learn more about our judging and awards, check out http://www.mcacn.com/awards.htm

So there you have it...if you are a female car enthusiast that is tired of being left in the shadows, we hope you will consider joining us with your car when we return to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. The show will be open Saturday, November 22,  from 9 am – 9 pm and Sunday, November 23,  from 9 am – 5 pm, and don’t forget, on Sunday we will be announcing the winner of the 2nd annual Great American Muscle Car Giveaway 1970 Olds Cutlass Indy Pace Car replica, with proceeds from the $10 each or 3/$20.00 raffle tickets going directly to some fantastic Children’s Charities! www.70oldsraffle.org to learn more and to get your tickets now.
