MCACN Official Videographer, V8TV Releases New Event Coverage!

One of the most common questions we get at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals is if there is any good video coverage of the show. Of course, if you search YouTube, you will find all kinds of stuff dating back to our inception in 2009. This is cool and we always like seeing what gets posted. There is, however, only one “Official Videographer” for the MCACN show, and that is V8TV. We met Kevin and Kelly Oeste way back when we started the show and right away, I knew they understood exactly what we are all about. Of course, the fact that they live and breathe American Muscle and cool cars as much as we do certainly helps. Hopefully you have seen some of their coverage of our show over the years, and also the awesome episodes of Muscle Car of the Week, which features cars right from The Brothers Collection. These are just plain fun and we are truly honored to have Kevin, Kelly and the V8TV team on board.






















V8TV is excited to release their online video coverage of the 2017 Muscle Car And Corvette Nationals. Kevin Oeste and the crew cover the event for us each year, and while their television episodes will air later this spring, our Official Videographers will be releasing web versions of some of the feature car videos online over the next several weeks. These in-depth spots cover everything from the 1967 Z/28 Invitational display and Sunoco Camaros, to the 1969.5 Super Bee A12 that was Unveiled, the Class of 1972 display, the stunning unrestored original 1970 Dodge Challenger RT/SE 426 Hemi gator top car, one of the 5 experimental electronic fuel injected Shelby GT500’s that were on hand and a 1967 GTO that’s been in the same family since new!  V8TV videos give you the chance to “meet” the owners and restorers of these cars and hear their stories first-hand.
