Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals 2021

November 20 @ 9:00 am - November 21 @ 9:00 pm

Mission Statement

As producers of The Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals, we provide the ultimate gathering place for enthusiasts, young and old, who have a passion for horsepower. We host this indoor showcase for the cars that have become a part of our lives and to provide a place to revive past memories and friendships while opening the door to many new memories and friendships.

Our Team

Unlike many other show promoters, we live and breathe cars on a daily basis. Our team is made up of fellow collectors who currently own and maintain a wide variety of collector cars ranging from AMC’s to Z/28’s. We have shown, raced, toured, bought, sold and traded many wheeled vehicles and we have all traveled many miles to participate in automotive events in and outside of the U.S.A.

More Than Just Cars

By being involved in many shows over the years, we have seen what works and what doesn’t work. First and foremost, we know that it takes much more than a room full of cars to have a great show. We know that it is the people involved in our hobby that make it so enjoyable. Surely the sights and sounds are what opens the door, but it is the shared enthusiasm we all have and the enjoyment we get by sharing the memories with those who love these four-wheeled wonders as much as we do.

Maybe it was your first ride in a “real” Muscle Car, or perhaps the first trip down the drag strip or around a road course. Those memories are indelibly stamped in our minds and they will continue to bring a smile to our faces when we see something that sparks that memory.

Join us for the ride, whether as a participant showing your own pride and joy or selling your parts, or as a spectator reliving those memories. Let us all make some new memories together.

Can I enter my car? 

Entries are processed as they are received. All entries must go through an acceptance process and priority is given to vehicles not previously shown in order to keep the show fresh. There is absolutely no “at the door” registration, as the show is always sold out (full) well in advance and this year we will sell out even earlier as most of the car entries will be rolled over to 2021.
