Sneak Peek 2012 Show*
1970 Plymouth Roadrunner 440+6 convertible
First Time Shown Car Entries at an All Time High for MCACN 2012
Restoration by Mike Mancini
We are truly honored to be able to host the country’s finest Muscle Cars and Corvettes that come in from all across the USA and Canada to be a part of our show. This year, we are especially excited about the high number of “first time shown” entrants we are receiving. Those of you who were at our 2011 show certainly remember the “Unveilings” Saturday morning, a definite highlight of the show. Opening with the “Only One” 1967 Shelby GT500 convertible, then over to the ultimate Day 2 ‘69 Nova, then over to the outrageous Baldwin-Motion Maco Shark, followed by the 1968 “Desert Rat” Yenko 427 Super Camaro and then the incredible red L79 Chevy II; whew...what a lineup!

For 2012, we will again open the show with some VERY significant muscle cars. Up front in the “hot spot” you will find the original 1969 Hurst/Olds convertible. YEP...you read that right! You will be able to see the actual car that was on the track with Linda Vaughan on the big platform with the huge Hurst shifter, Premiered at MCACN 2012 at 10 am Saturday, November 17. From there, we’ll head over to our 1969 Trans Am Convertible display, which will feature an unheard of SEVEN of the original eight ‘69 T/A converts. Ken Mosier and The Finer Details will be taking the wraps off of a freshly restored 1969 Trans Am convertible at 10:30 am. At 10:45, head over to the Chicagoland Mopar/Mopar Collectors Guide MOPAR ALLEY display area to see the cover come off a 1 of 17 1970 440+6 Roadrunner convertible! But wait...we aren’t through yet! Next up is a very cool second generation Firebird Formula that has incredible original family owned history. And this is just a sneak peek of the numerous First Time Shown cars you will see this year. Other cars entered that are currently under restoration that will be shown for the first time include a 1961 Corvette, restored to perfection, several Oldsmobile 442’s, a COPO Camaro, a ‘69 Yenko 427 Super Camaro, a ‘70 GTO Judge RA IV, a 1967 SS 427 Impala convertible and several C2 Corvettes and well...you get the idea! The pressure is on for the restorers of these fine automobiles and we can’t wait to see them up close and personal.
