Oldsmobile Homecoming Returns to Lansing,

30th Annual EyesOn Design & Mecum Portland Auction

 

Oldsmobile Homecoming Lansing Michigan June 17, 2017

One of my favorite events of the year is the annual Oldsmobile Homecoming
car show and swap meet in Lansing, Michigan. Always held the Saturday before Fathers Day, this is the world’s largest one-day all Oldsmobile car show. This year they are moving to a new larger facility that is super nice. The event will take place Saturday, June 17, from 9 am – 3 pm. The MCACN Crew will be set up in the swap area to spread the word about the upcoming Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, so c’mon by and see what we’re up to.

The show will take place at the Auto Owners Insurance Complex at 6101 Anacapri Blvd. in Lansing, Michigan. They are featuring the 50th Anniversary of the 1967 model year, so needless to say, we’ll be searching for some prime 67’s for our Class of ‘67 Invitational display, along with other years of prime Oldsmobile muscle. For the full scoop on this must do event, go to http://www.reolds.org/homecoming.htm

And speaking of Olds muscle, we will be hosting the Premier Unveilings of TWO this year. First, the 1971 442 W30 convertible that you saw last year in our Barn Find & Hidden Gems area will be shown by Jeff and JoHanna Stolowski, looking like it just rolled off the showroom floor. MCACN Official Sponsor Magnum Auto Restoration, Inc. has been hard at work on this car since right after last years show, and it is looking truly outstanding. Over in Colorado, Gary Riley and his team are working on the 1969 Hurst/Olds Prototype. You may have seen this car in various books and magazines over the years. It has a wild larger rear spoiler and a wide variety of one-off features inside and out.

         And YES...it is the real-deal with full history and documentation, and it is another

prime example of American Muscle from The Brothers Collection that you will see

unveiled Saturday morning, November 18.


 

 

EyesOn Design Car Show

Another notable event that takes place this weekend is the prestigious EyesOn Design show on Fathers Day, June 18. This event is much more than a car show, as they always have an exceptionally diversified group of cars along with vintage motorcycles and this year, a stellar group of tractors. Held on the grounds of the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan, it is a perfect way to spend some quality time with Dad and the family on Fathers Day in a beautiful setting. For full information on this great event, go to www.eyesondesign.org.


 

Mecum Portand 2017

 

Of course we can't forget the Mecum Portland Auction June 16-17 this year. Over 600 cars will be offered in the Portland Expo Center this week.  Portland is known for its parks, bridges and bicycle paths, as well as for its eco-friendliness and its microbreweries and coffeehouses. Iconic Washington Park encompasses sites from the formal Japanese Garden to Oregon Zoo and its railway. The city hosts thriving art, theater and music scenes. Don't miss the chance to see this beautiful city and the chance to see 600 awesome cars cross the block. All Buyers, Sellers and Spectators are welcome.

 


The Ashton Family at a Car Show 2015

Well, it’s the time of year to get out there and enjoy the cars and more importantly, the great people of our hobby. Being Fathers Day weekend and being a Dad myself, (and Granddad!), I encourage everyone to make a point of spending some quality time with your family. And if you are also a Dad and/or Granddad, consider showing some younger folks how much fun we can have, sharing memories and making new memories with some car people. Why? because we’re the coolest ones out there and we know how to have a good time!

Looking forward to seeing you out there.

The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals is the world’s largest all indoor specialty show devoted to Muscle Cars, Dealer-built Supercars and the finest and rarest Corvettes. We will again fill nearly 400,000 square feet of exhibit space in the beautiful Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (suburban Chicago), Illinois, just minutes from Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. We work hard all year long to bring you the best and freshest show in the nation and look forward to having you join us whether you are showing a car, showcasing your automotive products or services or as an all important spectator. Plan on joining is Saturday, November 18 and Sunday, November 19 and be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
