January may be known as the big month for car auctions, but for those of us into Muscle, Dana Mecum’s Spring Classic is always a must do event. Whether you are buying or selling, with 2,000 vehicles crossing the block between May 17-21 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, this is the place to be. Mecum Auctions is the leader and we are proud to have them on board as or Official Title Sponsor. Who could forget the incredible display the Mecum Auctions team had at our 2015 show? Several Hemi and 6-pack B and E-body Mopar convertibles, a ‘69 Trans Am convertible, a Superbird with under 1,000 miles along with several COPO’s, Yenko’s and Boss Mustangs were among the featured cars, and Dana and his team have since sold nearly every one of them. We can’t wait to see what they have in store for us this year, when we return to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, November 19-20! Yes indeed, they know how to get results so if you’re in the market, you really need to talk to the Mecum Auctions team.
The MCACN crew will be onsite at the auction with a display to talk about our show. We have some great things happening, so please make a point of stopping by, or stopping me if I happen to be running by! We will be accepting applications for cars, muscle bicycles and automotive related vendors. If you are considering joining us, don’t hesitate, as we are filling all area’s of our show faster than ever, and it certainly is not too soon. And remember, if you aren’t able to see us in Indy, you can submit your application online through our website right now. Enter soon because prices increase on June 1, 2016.
SPECIAL DISPLAYS; Our Invitational and Special displays are filling fast and the cars that will be in these displays are absolutely incredible. As always, we have many cars that are seldom (if ever) shown and many that are being shown for the very first time after extensive restorations. To see what special displays we have in store for you this year, click here. Take a look and if you have an outstanding example for one of these displays, please send pictures and information asap to email@example.com for consideration. We strictly limit the amount of cars in these displays and we’re looking for the best of the best, the rarest of the rare and we especially love seeing vehicles that are “off the radar” or seldom shown. Of course, if you own a prime example of massively overpowered American Muscle that does not match one of these displays, we would still love to have you join us! With over 500 cars on the show floor, we are looking for all makes and models of real factory muscle, so please consider joining us this year.

MODERN MUSCLE; Last year we launched our all new Modern Muscle section. The response was outstanding, and we are pleased to host this special gathering again for 2016 with a whole new group of cars. With just 39 cars total from 1984 to present in this section, it will be one of the first area’s of the show to be sold out. We will feature three separate blocks, each holding 13 cars; one block for GM, one block for Mopars and one featuring Fords. We have already received some truly outstanding entries, so if you want to be a part of the MCACN show and be on the inside, click here to submit your entry now; This area is for tastefully modified examples or uncommon special editions, not for factory stock late models.
Hoping to see many of you in Indy, stop by and let’s talk MCACN.
