2012 MCACN Corvette Central Triple Diamond Contender


if you are a car nut like me, this is going to be one fantastic weekend. Two of the best GM related events of the year will be taking place; the big Bloomington Gold Corvette show along with the Bloomington all-makes Survivor show in St. Charles, IL. and also the huge Carlisle GM Nationals in Carlisle, PA.

We will be headed to Bloomington Gold for a weekend of fun on the beautiful grounds of the Pheasant Run Resort. Thursday-Saturday the focus is on Corvettes, with Gold Certification, the Gold Market swap and vendor area’s, hundreds of cars for sale, the Goldmine for sale area, the Road Tour, seminars and so much more. On Sunday, they shift gears to focus on the Survivor show for ALL makes and models. The setting is absolutely gorgeous and the weather forecast looks great.

Bill Stasek Chevrolet will have 50+ Corvettes for sale at 2012 Bloomington Gold

The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals will have a space on the golf-course pathway, GC21a, near MCACN Triple Diamond Sponsor Corvette Central, across from MCACN Sponsor Mid America Motorworks , and right on the way to the huge display of great Corvettes offered for sale by MCACN Presenting Sponsor Bill Stasek Chevrolet. Be sure to stop by and see what these folks have for you, as they are all running outstanding specials for the show! I understand that Bill Stasek will have more than 50(!) Corvettes on display, all priced to sell. We also hear that MCACN Sponsor Dave Glass and the D&M Corvette Specialties gang is again geared up with some prime vintage Corvettes for sale, and you can’t miss Dave’s beautiful black big-rig, parked right near the main entrance to the Goldmine car for sale area! What a great way to kick off the weekend; Buy a Corvette on Thursday and start enjoying it right away!

We will be accepting applications for our Corvette Central Triple Diamond display and competition while at Bloomington Gold this weekend. Reserved strictly for the “best of the best” Corvettes from 1953-1996 that have already achieved NCRS Top Flight AND Bloomington Gold status.

I will be shooting pictures for our new magazine, which we are working on now. We do have a limited amount of ad space available, starting at just $100, so if you would like to be included, please stop by our display or call me on my cell at 586-549-5291 and we will meet on the grounds or at your car or booth. We will be offering up some great MCACN wearables at special show prices in our display, and Bob just acquired an amazing collection of original Dealer Promotional (Promo) models ranging from 1963-2001 including some real rarities which will be for sale also. Of course we will also be accepting applications for general show car entries and vendors while we are at the show

Jerry Kohn of Corvette Central  and Kevin McKay will be inducted into the Bloomington Golds Great Hall at the 2012  Bloomington Gold show. Congratulations Jerry and Kevin!

Heading east...our good friends and MCACN sponsor Carlisle Events is geared up for their Carlisle GM Nationals this weekend. This is one of the largest and most diverse GM specific events in the world. If you are a fan of Pontiac, Chevrolet, Buick or Oldsmobile, it will be on the Carlisle Fairgrounds! Row after row of cars, buildings packed with special invitational displays, rows of swap meet vendors offering literally thousands of parts and plenty of cars offered for sale from projects to Concours restored, it’ll all be there! Our Carlisle friends tell us that registration is way up this year, so that means it will be another great “must do” event. Car Show, Swap, Car Corral, Live Music, BBQ, ACA Camaros, Cartercars, Electric Drag Car, Funny Cars, Club Displays, Drag Racing, Monster Truck Rides, Engine Giveaway, Autocross, Seminars, Burnouts, MS Carlisle GM Nationals, Womens Oasis, Kids at Carlisle Activity Center, and more!
Artist David Snyder will be on hand with his beautiful artwork too. 
The Carlisle events crew do an outstanding job, and there are also some awesome food vendors there just doesn’t get any better! for all the details. And speaking of the Carlisle GM Nationals, be sure to check out the “Solid Lifter Showroom” right outside of the gates in the vintage dealership building. Brian Henderson of Super Car Workshop will be hosting an incredible display of rare muscle and while you are there, look him up to get an update on the MCACN Don Yenko/Cars of Yenko “Meet The Mean Ones in Chicago” display that is in the works.
We are very fortunate to be able to work with many of the industries finest who are our Sponsors. Without their continued support, we quite simply, would not be able to produce our show. Please consider doing business with them and show your support, as they support what we do and love. Be sure to thank them for being active participants in this great hobby of ours!
Let’s all have a great weekend and be safe.
