Official Transporter of MCACN
Sneak Peek 2014 MCACN*

I often brag about how fortunate we are at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals to have the absolute best in the industry as Official Sponsors. Not only are our Sponsors the best at what they do, but they also “get it” and understand the true passion of our participants. With that being said, we would like to remind you that Reliable Carriers is the Official Transporter for the MCACN show. What this means is that in addition to getting the best handling of your car and the best service, you will also get some exclusive “perks” for using Reliable. First off, we deal directly with Bob Sellers, the General Manager of Reliable Carriers, who personally oversees our participants shipping needs. You deal direct with “the man” who will work with you to make sure your car gets to and from the show in the quickest, safest and most efficient manner possible, no matter what state or country you are coming from. You will also have your car personally delivered to ME or my son Ian, at our show and unloaded indoors before we allow general move-in. Your car will be checked in and safely tucked away inside. In many cases, we will place your car right in its assigned spot after check in, so that when you come to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (greater Chicago) Illinois, you can concentrate on having some fun and getting your car ready at a leisurely pace. We understand how much work it is to be a part of our show, so we want to make sure that we do everything we can to allow you to have fun and enjoy the MCACN experience!

The Reliable fleet of beautiful big orange trucks is clean and state of the art, and the best part is their experienced team of drivers. They understand that the cars that are part of the MCACN show aren’t just transportation, but many time members of the family, along with being valuable. And speaking of value, as a proud member of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Licensing and Insurance System, Reliable Carriers can say with confidence that they have your best interests at heart. Being a member of the FMCSA system gives us the benefit and advantage of having a tremendous amount of data, a knowledge that they then pass on to you. They do so by applying this knowledge and information into their practices as an auto transport company so as to maintain the high level of standards the federal government has developed for this industry. Additionally they use the data and the continually updated information to make sure they have the most up-to-date statistics, news and alerts from the FMCSA. You see...there really is a difference and I can tell you that we are heading in to our 6th year working with Reliable Carriers, and we are proud to have them as our Official Transporter.

Thanks to Reliable Carriers for being our "Official Transporter of the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals"
Indian Uprising and Mopar Nationals...were both outstanding events for us last weekend, and both were huge successes. Special Thanks go out to all of the Cruisin’ Tigers who helped Vicki with setup and tear-down, along with Stefano and Tom from Nickey! Gee...where were you guys when I was setting up at Nats? LOL!. And another special Thank You to Jeff and Johanna Stolowski for staying with Vicki all weekend and helping her with the MCACN booth!
We confirmed some truly outstanding cars and several new vendors at both events, including the Orbit Orange GTO Judge I was searching for the GTO Anniversary display; thanks Mike A! I signed up an incredible 1967 Hemi GTX that took home “Best of Show” honors at the Mopar Nats, that will be joining us all the way from Utah, along with a very interesting and very different 1967 Hemi Coronet R/T that will be right next to it in our 50th Anniversary HEMI Invitational display to name a few! Congrats also go out to MCACN Official Sponsors The Finer Details and Magnum Auto Restorations, who both scored big in judging with two of the most beautiful Chargers I have ever seen.
This week , thanks to Ryan Brutt , we are finalizing our floor plan and that means we are finalizing the actual show layout. What I see is that we are going to be completely sold out in all area’s much sooner this year, which is a great thing! With over 550 cars and 200+ vendor spots, the show will again use each and every square foot of all indoor exhibit space, which is nearly 400,000 square feet! Whew....

Car and Vendor Applications are now being accepted. If you are “on the fence” or planning on joining us with either a car or as a vendor, sign up now! My hit list for “must have” cars for our Special Invitational displays is nearly complete, but if you have something that fits that is really special, please let me know ASAP. We have openings in our Corvette Central Triple Diamond Corvette area, but again, they are filling fast. Hoping for a few more Buick’s and Mercury’s, although we now have more than in any previous MCACN show. We also have room for a few more Barn Find/Hidden Gems, so if you own it, it has been tucked away and you want to be a part of one of the most fun parts of the show, get a hold of me and tell me what you have! firstname.lastname@example.org
Well...in my neighborhood is the big Woodward Cruise this weekend, so as you can imagine, it is kinda crazy around here! Although I won’t be taking part in the “actual” cruise day, (which is Saturday), cars have been out there all week. I will also be taking our good friend from Australia, John Clements, out there for a taste of the insanity, as he is spending some time out here during his 3 month world-wide tour! Just a side note- John is having his car shipped by Reliable Carriers from Australia to the MCACN Show in 2014!
Welcome to the states, John...we are going to have a blast with your Aussie Falcon at MCACN!
Don't forget, this weekend is Mecum Monterey!
Next Week, we will tell you about the Muscle Car Review MCACN Cover Cars shoot with our good friend Arvid Svendsen. Happy and SAFE Cruisin’ to you...
