CMC Annual Mopar Show and Swap This
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
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
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
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.

See you in Belvidere!
