2014 MCACN "Class of 1964" Invitational Display

Keeping the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show interesting and unpredictable is a constant goal for the MCACN team. Of course, there are always a few things that are “no brainers” that we have to feature, like the Anniversaries of the Chrysler Hemi, the GTO and the Mustang, that we will indeed acknowledge in a big way, but this year we have a few displays that step outside of the box. One that I am really excited about is the “Color My World” Invitational display, sponsored by the Wellborn Muscle Car Museum. Of course, you will see a wide variety of high-impact color Mopars, (again, a no brainer!) but we are taking things a step further by adding colorful examples of GM and Ford vehicles, and of course, the Big Bad AMC’s. The cars may be the stars, but this is about keeping things interesting....


G & L Guitars Detroit Muscle Series


With that being said, I am pleased to announce we are joining forces with G&L Guitars out of California to help them launch their brand new Detroit Muscle Series of hot guitars. G&L was founded by Leo Fender, (yep...that Leo Fender!) and their list of endorsee’s is mighty impressive and reads like a who’s who of the music industry. You will find Gerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains, Glen Campbell, Elliott Easton of the Cars, Peter Frampton and Brad Whitford of Aerosmith on the list, to name a few! So what does this have to do with the MCACN show? Well...slide that chair to the screen and let me tell you! You see, G&L is like us, always looking for different ways to keep things interesting. Launching their Detroit Muscle Series, the first group will be the SS Collection, and you guessed it...that SS refers to Super Sport! FOUR hot colors will adorn these special edition guitars and basses; Cranberry Red, which you will see next to a gorgeous 1970 LS6 Chevelle, Daytona Yellow, which you will see on display next to Len and Linda Perham’s incredible 1969 RS COPO 427 Camaro, Marina Blue which of course, will be shown beside a matching Corvette and Hugger Orange, seen beside an RS Z/28 Camaro! We have secured three prime examples of matching cars, and you know we’ll find the fourth! (still searching for the perfect 1969 Z/28, so if it is in your garage and you want to be a part of a VERY special display, contact me at To learn more about this new series and the G&L Guitar Company, go to But wait....we’re not done yet. To make things even better, One of our participants and one of our spectators will be going home from the MCACN show with one of these awesome guitars. TWO special drawings will be held, and you may be the lucky winner. To be eligible, you must attend our show as either a spectator or a participant and the winners will be announced Sunday, right after....


Redline 7000 Band -Click to see Youtube Video


MORE MUSIC AT MCACN! Those who have been with us for a few years know that our good friend and Mecum Auction Company color commentary man John Kraman heads up an awesome rock and roll band called Redline 7000. A couple years ago, Redline 7000 played at our show on Saturday night and we had a blast. In fact, I really had a blast as they let me sit in on the drums! We are pleased to announce Redline 7000 will be returning with their special blend of High Performance Rock n Roll playing classic rock from the 60’s to the 90’s on Saturday, November 22. To learn more about Redline 7000 and hear what they sound like, check out 

Big Dog Mercer

But wait...that’s not all! Since we are in the Chicago area, we have another musical announcement. You see, Chicago is known for Blues guitar, and one of the hottest blues guitarists around is Marty “Big Dog” Mercer. Marty is on a roll right now, playing all over the country with his 3 piece Rock and Blues band. Marty and the band tied for first place at the Chicago Blues Challenge in both 2012 AND 2013, and he was also inducted as a A Great Blues Artist in the Blues Hall of Fame in 2013. And those are just a few from the long list of accolades Marty and his band have earned. We are truly honored to present Marty Big Dog Mercer live on our awards stage, Sunday, November 23 for a full set of Rock ‘n Blues!
So that’s the latest from the MCACN team. Remember, we are now accepting applications for both cars and automotive (only) related vendors through our website; We are the world’s largest all indoor specialty show devoted to the finest and the rarest high horsepower Muscle Cars and Corvettes. We will again fill nearly 400,000 square feet of exhibit space at the beautiful Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (greater Chicago), Illinois. The show takes place Saturday, November 22, from 9 am – 9 pm, and Sunday, November 23, from 9 am – 5 pm. Title Sponsor; the Mecum Auction Company, Presenting Sponsor; Bill Stasek Chevrolet.
Next week; the Indian Uprising in St. Charles, Illinois AND the Mopar Nationals at National Trail Raceway near Columbus, Ohio. And yes...we can be in two places at once!
