Default 58 Yenko's in one spot

In case nobody knows...As of now we have 58 Yenko's coming to this years Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals. WWW.MCACN.COM. I'm not a guy that usually likes to sit around at car shows but this is not your average car show. We will have over 500 cars all under one roof, indoors. It is our 4th year and if you talk to anyone that has been to past shows they will tell you it is the best collection of musclecars ever. Alot of people jump thru alot of hoops to get their cars ready and to the show so please try to come to Chicago the weekend before Thanksgiving and have a great time. Look at our website and read some of the reviews some of the magazines have given our shows. It really is something special.

I'm at a dilemma. Wife has a week off that week and she was looking at a 6 day Med cruise. Me. I'm looking at round trip tickets from frankfurt to Chi town. This was easy until she got a week off.

Easy decision from my perspective. There would be 20 more MCACN's before my wife forgave me for choosing Chicago over a week cruise with her.

After 10 years, she still brings up the fact that I stored interior door panels under the bed in the guest room. It's OK to have dust bunnies under there, just no car parts! (I'm smart enough to NOT bring up the dust bunnies)

Is the 67 Yenko you have going to be there? Any updates, pics of it?

BTW: Followed the link for your 70 Z/28......WOW!! That is an amazing story and a great find.

My boy and I were there today. I agree it was amazing but I'm new to this so nothing to compare it to. Don't all car shows have this many cars? Wow!

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.

Mike, lots of shows have a few hundred cars but 500 cars of this quality and rarity is unusual.
Those 7 convertable Trans Ams for example of only 8 in existence, or 58 Yenkos under one roof along with Don Yenkos daughter signing autographs and she was so nice to talk to.
Linda Vaughn, Mr. Norm, and Buddy Martin were there too.

Jerry, sorry we missed you. It looks like you took that picture in almost the same spot. I will definitely try to make that show again.

I took my son and grandson on Sunday. My grandson hasn't been to many of these shows yet, He had a blast. I had a nice long chat with Bob the owner of the Goodyear tire test Yenko Corvair over lunch. Interesting stories and great guy. We need to figure an easier way to ID Team Camaro members on the fly.

See ya next Year!

I was there all day Saturday and took 100's of pics. My first time to the show and it was mind blowing. Couldnt believe the quality of the cars. Loved it ...and I got to meet Rick Nelson and check out the 68 Yenko he did - a 998 pt resto that made me weak in the knees!
