It is going to be another awesome weekend for car us nuts! For me, I’ll be headed out to the big All Chrysler Nationals in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. As I have said before, the Carlisle Events team know how to do it right, and their Chrysler event is one of my favorites. With over 2,000 cars on the field and in the buildings, along with one of the biggest swap meets, you are sure to find whatever it is you may be looking for. I’ll be looking for cars and vendors to invite to MCACN, and as always, looking forward to seeing many old friends and making some new ones. Another notable event that will take place Saturday night is the Mopar Hall of Fame Induction celebration, Presented by Mopar Collectors Guide magazine. Among this years inductee’s are Ron Mancini, Karl Kiekhaefer, Dick Maxwell, Virgil Exner, Big Willie Robinson and others. To learn more about the MCG Mopar Hall of Fame check out http://moparhalloffame.com/2015site/ So my recommendation for the All Chrysler Nationals is to wear comfortable shoes and plan and spending at least two full days to take in as much as you can! See www.carlislevents.com for full event information.
Another cool event that will be taking place Friday night in the Chicago area is in celebration of National Collector Car Appreciation Day, which is Friday, July 10. Our good friend Nicolle Girard, Senior Manager of Travel and Events for MCACN Official Sponsor, Hagerty Insurance says, “We are taking over the Cascade Drive In and allowing anyone who registers to bring a classic car in for free. The theater can take up to 1000 cars and we’re about half way there. "
Calling All Classics:
On Collector Car Appreciation Day, Friday, July 10th, Hagerty Classic Cars magazine is taking over Chicago's Cascade Drive-In and opening it up to classic cars only, for free. So load up your kids, grandkids and friends, and cruise on in.

So, in addition to getting ready to hit some great events this weekend, I have been hammering away on our all new 72 page magazine and doing research for the E-body Hemi Convertibles Limited Edition Commemorative book that we will be offering soon. This book will have several pages devoted to each one of the 20+ very real and fully documented 1970 Challenger R/T Hemi convertibles and the ‘70 and ‘71 Hemi ‘Cuda convertibles that are joining us for a history making special display this year. More on the book later, along with more announcements for cool stuff that will be happening at this years show.
Thanks and happy motoring!
