CMC Annual Mopar Show and Swap This Weekend


CMCC Belvidere Car Show and Swap Meet

When it comes to local support for the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, one of our most active and supportive clubs is the Chicagoland Mopar Connection. Every year Roger and Diane Schmelling coordinate a fresh and truly outstanding group of prime Mopars for our show, and along with Rob Wolf of Mopar Collectors Guide magazine, create our Mopar Alley display in the “big” room. This is always a fun area of the show, filled with A, B, E and even the occasional C-body Mopars. You never know what you’ll see, as Roger and the crew keep it fresh, which is something we (and our spectators!) truly appreciate. And this year we are pleased to announce a great addition to Mopar Alley, with some of the best cars from the Northwest Indiana Mopar Group joining in. You’ll see Hemi’s, 440-6’s, 383’s and 340’s and several national magazine feature cars. Whew...what a display! Oh...and another cool thing about this group; in addition to the support and participation, we also have CMC members on our show staff and several serve as MCACN Judges. Now that is support!

So this leads up to this weekends activities out in Belvidere. The CMC puts on the Belvidere Mopar Happening, and this is the 27th Annual event . This big show and swap is a lot of fun, and I always find some great cars for MCACN. I also manage to find a few things I have to have in the swap area every year! And to make things even better, several years ago they added the Dodge Charger meet on Saturday and this year a designated Modern Mopars show within the show. That means there are two full days of show and swap; great cars, cool people and lots of fun. Isn’t that what it’s all about?

We will be set up in one of the buildings, so c’mon over and see what we’re up to. We will be accepting applications for cars and vendors, so if you have been thinking about joining us, better lock in now, as we are filling the show faster than ever in all area’s. Oh...allow me to give you another reason to join us; we will be bringing out our inventory of past event T-shirts, including some of the cool shirts from our 2015 Hemi E-Body Convertible Invitational display that we just found. We have sizes from small to XXL, with small/medium and larges for $10, XL’s and XXL’s for $15. Get ‘em while you can!

Official Host Hotel Update; As always, we have some truly great deals for our spectators and our participants at FIVE area hotels. Four are located right across the street while the aLoft is just a few blocks away with free door to door shuttle service. Each offers special perks for us and we have negotiated rates starting at just $115, (Crowne Plaza) and they also all offer special rates for parking. To get the inside scoop along with direct MCACN special rate booking links, click here; And YES, the DoubleTree is again “party central” and as always, the first to sell out. As of today, there are rooms available at all five hotels, but don’t hesitate!

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 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (suburban Chicago), Illinois, just minutes from the Chicago O’Hare airport. Please consider joining us Saturday, November 18, from 9 am – 9 pm and Sunday, November 19, from 9 am – 5 pm.
