MID AMERICA MOTORWORKS CORVETTE FUNFEST STARTS NOW!
We are really excited about the 19th Annual Mid America Motorworks Funfest, which is starting TODAY in Effingham, Illinois. Believe me, when it comes to throwing a party, Mike Yager and his team know how to do it right. Like the MCACN show, this is a family friendly event with a whole lot to do, even if you arenít as crazy about cars as some of us are. The list of happenings is long and there really is something for everyone.
First and foremost are the Corvettes; there will be row after row of every possible variation you can think of. Stock, modified and even a few racers. New 2013ís direct from Bowling Green courtesy of GM, the latest creations from Callaway and everything else from C1ís to C6ís will be on the field. This year they are celebrating the introduction of the 1963 Sting Ray and that means special parking! We want to see the oldest 1963 Sting Ray right there during Funfest! Whether your Sting Ray is a barn find in need of some TLC or a pristine show car, be sure to join in on the fun in Effingham to celebrate one of the most venerated designs in the automotive industry!
We are especially excited about the 60th Anniversary celebration of the iconic Corvette. The Funfest Crew is putting together a Time Capsule filled with Corvette related memorabilia to be stashed away for the 100th anniversary in 40 years! If you have something that needs to be included in this, click here to see how you can be a part of history; http://www.corvettefunfest.com/Highlights.aspx This link will also show you the long list of happenings for all four days including seminars, book signings, special onsite installations and even beer tasting and massages!
On Friday night, there will be a Funfest Red Carpet Premier at the nearby Effingham Performance Center featuring The Quest, the awesome documentary that chronicles Chip Millers dream of finding the 1960 class-winning #3 Corvette to restore, and ultimately return to Le Mans in 2010 to mark the 50th anniversary of the carís win. YOU can be a part of the VIP reception! Proceeds benefit the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation and TREC (Trail Recreation Effingham County)
Another favorite feature of the weekend is the Saturday night concert. Held on the big stage under the stars, this year they are featuring the World Classic Rockers, with members of Journey, Santana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Boston and Steppenwolf. This is something you donít want to miss.
So, with rows of Corvettes, all kinds of activities and plenty of great car people, along with some of the best specials of the year on products and services from MCACN Sponsor Mid America Motorworks, how can you go wrong? This is an absolute Must-do event whether you are a Corvette freak or just like to have fun. The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals team will have a booth in the midway to spread the word about MCACN and we will be accepting applications for cars and vendors. We are filling up at a record rate, so if you have been thinking about joining us, now is the time to lock things up!
