BUSY WEEK FOR MCACN CREW
First off, we are pleased to announce we recently confirmed a strategic partnership with the Auto World die cast company, makers of some of the coolest collectible 1/64, 1/43 and 1/18th scale Limited Edition replicas on the market. The Auto World team has been attending our show for several years now, and of course, we discussed how cool it would be to replicate some of the actual cars that are at our shows. This led to further discussions, and as they say...the rest is soon to become Muscle Car history! The first offering will be the gorgeous Silver ‘66 Chevelle SS that was shown by Mr. and Mrs. Terry Davis. You’ll remember this one, because it was one of two that they had on display at last years show, side by side. The first will be in 1/18th scale, with loads of detail. What makes this especially neat is that it is not just any silver Chevelle; it is the Davis’ actual car, right down to the proper redline tires and full wheelcovers! This is the first of many more, and as mentioned, the MCACN series will be produced in various sizes. We have invited this car to be part of our Class of 1966 Invitational display, and the Auto World folks will be on hand with a display. And yes..they will be looking for more cars for the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals Series! Your car may be the next to be replicated...
OLDSMOBILE HOMECOMING; we will be heading to Lansing, Michigan for the Oldsmobile homecoming this Saturday, June 18. This is the largest single day ALL Oldsmobile event in the world. We always find some great cars for the MCACN show, and we’ll have a display in the midway/swap area. This is an absolute must do event for any Muscle Car fan, whether you are an Olds guy or not.

EyesOn Design; It is once again time for the Fathers Day Tradition EyesOn Design show this Sunday, June 19. For over ten years now, I have assembled an outstanding group of Muscle Cars, including several MCACN participants and alumnus and a prime group of tastefully modified Tuners for this prestigious show. Held on the grounds of the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan, we will have a booth to promote the MCACN show. And as if that isn’t enough, we will also have a very special display of 20+ Muscle Bicycles, which will include our Granddaughter Emily’s very own 1972 Ross Polo Jr. muscle bike as seen at MCACN! This Concours style event is a benefit for Henry Ford Health System's Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology. EyesOn Design is a major source of funding for the DIO's research, education and support group programs for the visually impaired. Click here for full show and related activity information.
FATHERS DAY and some suggestions for Dad, Grandpa or any other enthusiast; We would like to say Happy Fathers Day to all the Dad’s and Grand-dads out there. I would also like to say that Car books make outstanding presents, and want to recommend a few that I have added to my own personal collection recently. First off, the latest from our good friend Wes Eisenschenk, titled Lost Muscle Cars. This book is a collection of stories written by enthusiasts about their quest to find these extremely rare and valuable muscle cars. Great reading and available now through Cartech. Second up is an absolutely gorgeous hardcover titled Wide Open Muscle. This one has some of the best convertibles from The Brothers Collection and was written by one of my all time favorite authors, Randy Leffingwell, with incredible photography by Tom Loeser. Yes...you will see some familiar cars that you have seen at MCACN in this one! Get this one through Motorboooks/Quarto Publishing. Of course these books are available through Amazon too! Third up is the new Boss 351 book from Rick Ybarra, Jr. If it pertains to the Boss 351, it’s in here! Contact Rick to get your copy of this one. Oh...and one more thing; all of these authors will be joining us at the MCACN show in November, so you will be able to get your books autographed!
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.
