There is no doubt that the primary focus of the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show will always be high horsepower examples of the finest and rarest 60’s and 70’s original Muscle Cars and Corvettes. Where else would you find a row of Hemi convertibles, ZL1’s, Boss 429’s, Stage 1 Buick’s or Super Duty Pontiacs? Seeing even one of these cars at any show is always a treat, but at MCACN, you know you will likely have the opportunity to see more of these cars under one roof than anywhere else in the world.
With that being said, nobody can deny the “rebirth” of the Muscle Car era that we are enjoying right now. I mean, who would have ever thought that you would be able to go over to Denny Guest’s South Oak Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep and drive out in a 707 horsepower Challenger Hellcat, or maybe over to Bill Stasek Chevrolet to pick up a 650 horsepower Z06 Corvette? And what makes it even better is that these modern day marvels have all the creature comforts and safety features we love, and they are comfortable to use as daily drivers. Extremely fun daily drivers, of course!
This year we are pleased to announce we will be hosting a special area  for Modern Muscle cars. This area is not for the typical shiny red Gen 5 Camaro with a nice set of wheels, but is limited to the best of the best in tastefully modified high horsepower examples. Think Nickey, Roush, Callaway, Hurst, Saleen or Mr. Norm’s, or perhaps something you are taking to the next level. There will be spots for just 36-38 cars, with three separate blocks with just 12-14 cars in each. One block will feature cars from General Motors, one for Ford products and one for Mopars. What this means is we are going to be very selective, and I am sure these spots will fill quickly! Cars can be judged as either Street Stock/Modified or in our intense Day 2 Concours program. This is not for average street drivers, but the best of the best, like the “Blackjack” Nickey Camaro shown above and below, which features a 750 horsepower supercharged LS3, and a laundry list of other mods, inside, outside and underneath! You will see this one at the show along with several other Nickey Super Cars!

If you own a prime example of Modern Muscle and would like to be a part of the world’s largest all indoor specialty show devoted to Muscle Cars, Dealer-built Supercars and the finest and rarest Corvettes, please send specs, photos and information to me at Space is extremely limited and we are holding strictly to the 12-14 cars per brand theme, so if you are interested, let me know right away. Please note; once these spots are filled, we will not have room for expansion!
We are always looking for ways to keep our show fresh, exciting and family friendly. No matter what brand you like best, we strive to make sure your MCACN experience is one that makes you want to come back for more, year after year! If you have an idea or suggestion, we would love to hear it. Robbie in a Nickey Car
The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals is the world’s largest all indoor specialty show devoted to Muscle Cars, Dealer-built Supercars and the finest Corvettes, “The Pebble Beach of muscle cars” according to Muscle Car Review magazine! We will again fill nearly 400,000 square feet of exhibit space at the beautiful Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (suburban Chicago), Illinois. You will see over 500 cars, many rarely if ever shown and over 200 automotive related vendor spots filled to capacity. The show will take place Saturday, November 21,
 from 9 am – 9 pm, and Sunday, November 22, from 9 am – 5 pm.
Looking forward to seeing you soon, and THANKS for the continued support.

Sneak Peek 2015 MCACN Show

With opening lines like “MCACN Continues Its Streak” (Muscle Car Review, March, 2015), “Another outstanding gathering of rare and storied performance cars converge on Chicago” (Hemmings Muscle Machines, April 2015) and “With Hemi rarities, survivor six-packs, street and strip monsters, and a cast of thousands, the 6th Annual Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals was a veritable Mopar candy store” (Mopar Action, June 2015), we could not be happier with the coverage we have been receiving from the national media. Yes...we may be bragging, but the bottom line is that we have worked long and hard and we are very proud of what we have established. It is really cool to see awesome coverage in print. What makes it even better is seeing so many of our participants getting some well deserved recognition! With so many showing cars that are rarely, (if ever) seen by the public, this offers those who were not able to be at the show a glimpse of what we are all about, and hopefully, confirms that you need to join us in person when we return to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (suburban Chicago), Illinois, November 21-22.
We would like to extend our sincere appreciation to our media friends who join us to cover the show and help us spread the word. As those of you who have been at the show know, there is no better way to experience what we do than to see it in person, but for those who are unable to attend, the magazines offer a glimpse. The editors, writers and photographers have been doing an outstanding job of showing our passion and what we represent, and we are truly honored and humbled by the kind words and awesome photos that each of them share. Please view the media page on our website to see the many features, and show your support by subscribing to these publications, and also by letting them know you enjoy the coverage.

Check back periodically, as there will be additional new features that will be hitting the stands over the next several months that we will be adding.
