The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals is widely regarded as the best show of its type in the world. The show celebrated its tenth anniversary earlier this month, once again filling the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, with a mind-bending array of vintage and not-so-vintage American muscle cars, race cars, Corvettes, street machines, and auto-oriented collectibles and memorabilia.

1971 Plymouth Duster 340

Do we have your attention yet? This 1971 Plymouth Duster 340 is finished in Curious Yellow paint that seemed to glow on the show floor. High Impact indeed!

For the past nine years, the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals has taken over the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, on the weekend before Thanksgiving. For American performance-car fanatics, this unparalleled show has become an unmissable season tradition every bit as important as grandma’s turkey and stuffing.

1969 Ford Torino, 2016 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals

One of the spotlight cars at this year’s show was Bobby Unser’s Boss-429-powered 1969 Torino race car, which was purpose-built by Holman-Moody, Bill Stroppe, and Smokey Yunick to set Pikes Peak records, which it did. Ever seen Goodyear Blue Streak dirt tires before?

The weekend before Thanksgiving is a great time to be in the Chicagoland area if you’re a car guy, because that’s when the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals rolls through town. The 2016 edition of MCACN took over the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, last weekend, bringing with it a bevy of amazing all-American machinery.

Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, 2015 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals

Here’s about one half of the 1970-’71 Hemi ‘Cudas and Challengers that were on display at the 2015 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals. These are the rarest, most desirable, and most valuable regular-production muscle cars in existence.

The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals rolled through Chicago last weekend, taking over the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. Every year since the inaugural show was held in 2009, MCACN has delivered an unparalleled mix of cream-of-the-crop muscle cars, Corvettes, and racing vehicles, in addition to first-rate attractions such as freshly discovered “barn-find” cars, Schwinn Sting-Rays and other nostalgic “muscle bikes”, and seminars by leading historians and auto-industry luminaries.

2012 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals

The 2012 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals was held in Rosemont, Illinois, on November 16 and 17. Being a longtime muscle car fan, I was very impressed with the incredible array of rare and historic gems that were at this show. I was blown away looking at the pristine examples of factory muscle, the rarest-of-the-rare dealer-built supercars, and historic road and drag racers. I’m especially fond of the newfound popularity of “day two” cars, which have emerged over the last few years. These cars are preserved or restored to specifications in which they would have been seen during stoplight brawls on Main Street or in all-out drag strip attire. . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
