MCACN WELCOMES NCM INSURANCE AS CLASS OF 1965 OFFICIAL SPONSOR
Adam Boca and the Corvette Museum, along with NCM Insurance have been supporters of the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show since our inception in 2009. This year, they are really kicking things up a notch by being our Official Sponsor of the Class of 1965 Invitational display.
The NCM Insurance Agency is more than an insurance agency. As part of the National Corvette Museum, they are pleased to offer Corvette insurance, collector car insurance and car club insurance. Their programs are not just limited to Corvettes, as they we will accept just about any make and model of collector vehicle. Be sure to meet Adam Boca, who will be onsite to discuss your specific needs. Youíll find Adam in the NCM display near the Class of 1965, and heíll be ready to talk about your needs, whether for a single car, a collection or for your car club. Thanks NCM...we truly appreciate your continued support!
Dave Lambert 1965 Malibu SS Z16
So, speaking of our Class of 1965...we previously told you we have been putting together what is sure to be the largest gathering ever under one roof of real documented Z16 Chevelles. With expert assistance from Z16 owner/aficionado Jeff Helms, we will do exactly that. A mere 201 of these cars were built, and we will host several prime examples in each of the three colors that were offered. And to keep things interesting, youíll see Concours restored cars, unrestored originals and even one that is coming in with the original owner. Whew...that alone is enough reason to join us!
So in addition to the Z16ís, youíll see TWO Premier Unveilings. One is the Mr. 5 & 50 Plymouth drag car that was driven by Jack Werst, while the second is another notable drag racer; one of the two factory built drag Ford Fairlanes. Both of these cars have not seen the light of day for years, and both are being restored as this is being written. See the covers come off after extensive restorations Saturday morning, November 21! Oh...and did I mention noted Restorer Scott Tiemann will be joining us with his Fathers Ď65 GTO that he recently restored? This is the car that planted the seed for Scott, and it just took home National honors. Being from the Tiemann family, you know itís a show-stopper!
Harry Hood 1965 Day 2 Corvette Coupe
Additional Class of 1965 cars include the 4-speed Olds Starfire convertible sneak peek car, a gorgeous red 442, an immaculate Riviera G.S. and the coolest true Day2 Corvette Coupe that you have ever seen! And thatís just the beginning...
MUSCLE CAR ADVENTURES THIS WEEKEND!

This year, Automotive Archeologist and host of the MCACN Barn Finds & Hidden Gems display, Ryan Brutt, will be representing MCACN. Ryan will being taking part in several of the tours, while spreading the word about the MCACN show. He will also be making Award Picks and presenting Crystal awards.

Oh...and I recommend a stop at the Mustard Museum!
Well...many of us sent the kids or in our case, the Grandkids, off to school this week, (or maybe even before the holiday weekend!)
