The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (often referred to as MCACN) is always held the weekend before Thanksgiving at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago. It's a great location (once you are out of the outside weather in Chicago!), and the show never disappoints.
This year was extra fun for us GT350 Mustang Shelby fans because there was a special display featuring early production GT350s. The display included 5S003, 5006, 5009, 5010, 5012, and 5013. GT350 project engineer, and all around nice guy, Chuck Cantwell attended as well!
Another highlight was the display of an original family owner 1965 GT350. The owner was extremely gracious in telling the story of his dad's purchase of the car in 1965 and sharing the huge binder of original paperwork! There were other great Shelby Mustangs in attendance along with so many other brands of nice muscle cars.
This has really become a show that should be on every car guy's bucket list.
