National Corvette Homecoming

This year our good friends Joe and Vera Pruitt have some big changes in store for the Corvette Homecoming and Chevy Invitational, which is happening this week, June 1-3. The biggest change is that it will now take place at the National Corvette Museum, which is right by the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Here is a summary from Joe as to what this show is all about; “As with any brand of car - you buy it, you take it to a show, you meet old friends and make new friends, and it turns out to be the people that brings you to most of your destinations. That is what I believe Homecoming is all about.”


National Corvette Homecoming

If you have been looking for a reason to check out the Corvette plant, this will be your last chance for quite a while, as they are gearing up for big changes shortly after the show, and will be suspending tours. But the tours are just one part of the activities taking place at this show. A long list of activities are planned from Thursday-Saturday, including seminars, a swap meet, activities for the ladies, the manufacturers midway, a car for sale area, a Bar-B-Q and cruise-in, live music and of course, row after row of Corvettes and other Chevrolet products. addition to the Corvettes of all years, Joe has expanded the show to include all Bow Tie vehicles, big and small. If you are looking for a nice show run by great people, this one is a must do. Great cars, awesome participants and show staff and all kinds of fun for the whole family; everything a great car show should be! We also recommend that you make a point of meeting our good friend Ken Lingenfelter, who is this years Grand Marshall. He is in good company, as past Grand Marshalls include Guy Larsen, CEO of Bloomington Gold, and Mid America Motorworks Chief Cheerleader, Mike Yager!  For more information and the schedule of events, check out

Jeff Stolowski 442 which will be freshly restored and unveiled at MCACN 2017

The summer show season is in full swing and our schedule has us traveling back to Indy twice, first for the Shelby American Automobile Club SAAC-42 National Convention June 8-10, then again for Bloomington Gold, “The Grand-daddy of Corvette Shows", June 22-24. And speaking of homecomings, we’ll be heading to the Oldsmobile Homecoming in Lansing, Michigan, June 17. This is where we watched Jeff Stolowski purchase and take delivery of more N.O.S. parts for his 1971 W-30 Olds 442 convertible than I have ever seen in one place last year. This car is being restored right now by MCACN Official Sponsor, Magnum Restorations, Inc. Featured last year in our Barn Finds & Hidden Gems display, and it will be Officially Unveiled Saturday, November 18 at our show.

And this is just the beginning. We hope you and your family get out there and enjoy the cars and the awesome people of our hobby.
