Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals MCACN 2020

November 21 @ 9:00 am - November 22 @ 8:00 pm

Our job never ends at MCACN headquarters, and 2020 is already shaping up to be another record year. I mean, with the 50th Anniversary celebrations we had last year featuring the 1969 model year being such a hit, we all know what is going to happen when we start commemorating 1970, the year that many Muscle Car enthusiasts consider the best. Think about it; we had Buick GSX’s, Hemi ‘cuda’s and Challengers, LS6 Chevelles, all new Camaro’s and Firebirds and Boss 429’s. Stage 1 Buick’s, Ram Air GTO’s and Firebirds and so many more. Can you imagine being a young guy or girl with a bit of cash in hand? Head down to (insert your favorite brand) dealer and drive out with a rip ‘snorting Muscle Car that could certainly get you into trouble in a hurry!


With that being said, allow us to introduce our FIRST round of MCACN Special and Invitational displays for 2020. First up is our Class of 1970, which will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of this pinnacle year. Then, we will have several “displays within the display”. Olds Ram Rods, Dodge Challengers and Buick G.S’s are among them. And speaking of Mopars, we will host a celebration of the AAR ‘cuda’s and Challenger T/A’s, with a goal of hosting one of each available color. And for those of you into race cars, our good friend Geoff Stunkard will host a gathering of REAL Pro-Stockers. This group will have various makes and years, but suffice it to say, they will All be real-deal cars. We will also have some very special guests joining us for this one.

Speaking of friends and long time supporters of what we do, Jim Mattison will return to host another stellar gathering of rare and real Ram Air Pontiacs. This year the Firebirds will steal the spotlight. If you saw the Ram Air GTO display Jim hosted last year, you know he invites only the absolute best, so be prepared to see another outstanding gathering of Pontiac’s hottest performers. Dr. Ajesh Parikh, who has brought us incredible displays of Buicks the past two years, will focus on the 1970 model year with an emphasis on the Stage 1’s, both hardtop and convertible. Again, if you saw the displays Ajesh assembled in ’18 and ’19, you know how hard he works to bring the best to our show!

Of course this is just the beginning and we have quite a bit more in the works. Returning features are our Barn Finds & Hidden Gems, Hosted by Ryan Brutt, and sponsored by Miller Auto Care, Stock Restorations and Restomods, our Vintage Certification program, Sponsored by American Performance, LLC with the emphasis on Preservation instead of Restoration, our Corvette Central Triple Diamond display and competition and of course, our Shelby and Mustang Pinnacle certification, Hosted by Bob Perkins. Muscle Bikes return along with our fun Mini Bike display, both Sponsored by Koolestuff, and look for a much improved Kids Zone, with help from our good friends at Auto World.

As always, a whole new group of cars will be Officially Unveiled to kick things off Saturday morning. (more on those in the coming months). We have more than half of the Official Unveiling field already lined up, so if you are considering this, let us know asap as this will again sell out well in advance. We are now accepting applications online, and as you know, priority is given to cars that have not been shown in the area previously or with us over the past few years. We all work very hard to present a fresh new show for our spectators!
