Here's my son standing in front of the Yenkos. Saw an awesome seminar that we just happened to walk in on about fraud in muscle car sales. VIN number scams, trim tag doctoring, duplicate titles etc. Some really interesting information.

That particular seminar was put on by Jim Mattison, the founder of Pontiac Historical Services. Jim is the only surviving GM employee who worked directly for the central office, as in COPO program.

Guest speakers are just one of many special features at MCACN.

We also have meeting rooms available for Clubs and that would be a good opportunity for team Camaro members to meet up.

Stefano,

Yes that was the one. With all of the purchases of cars online after hearing Jim I would highly recommend anyone in the market for a classic car get familiar with what he presented. Even my 13 yr. old son was enthralled with all the crazy scams out there and he never sits still for lectures.

Thanks for putting on a great show!

Re: 58 Yenko's in one spot

I think it would be very cool if there was a camaro.net room where members could showcase their restoration projects via projector - maybe even give out a cheesy little award to those resto's completed this year to motivate folks like me who are trying to get theirs started. How cool would it be to talk with them and ask questions in person? It would be like this awesome site incarnate! Hell, that would be worth the price of admission alone!

Thank you for the compliment Dan. It was great to meet and talk with you and your lovely wife and boys. Great family and two boys that will definitely be gearheads! Hats off to everyone of the MCACN team for pulling off what was said could not be bested and that was last years show. Thanks to all behind the Yenko tribute as well as there has likely never been that many Yenkos in one place since they were parked on the back (and poluted) lot behind the dealership in 1969.

Re: 58 Yenko's in one spot

What was that new Camaro doing in a Don Yenko Memorial display?

Don died in 1987 and has not worked on any cars since then.

Other then that new Camaro, it looked like a great display of Don Yenko's contributions

to automotive history.

That is Lynn Yenko's Camaro. She gets a hall pass.

any chance Jim shed any light on if/when Chevrolet might make their records avail or why they won't?

From the pix I've seen, it was an incredible show...best in the country, no doubt. Congrats to all those involved and I hope to get up there to see it in person one day

Re: 58 Yenko's in one spot

You'll have to ask Jim that question. Thanks for the positive comments. It takes a lot of hard work from all involved in order to make a show like that happen. Thanks to everyone who participated in anyway!
