Hard to believe MCACN is coming up already! Bob Ashton says he has got over 100 Mopars scheduled to be there, including over 20 E bodies lined up for a shaker hood cuda and Challenger display. One is a loaded 71 hemi Challenger export car recently returned to North America from Switzerland. scope
Ryan's got a FM3 roadrunner convertible signed up to be in his Barn Finds display.
And another 500 or so other rare and incredible cars will be here in Rosemont IL November 18 and 19. drool thumbs

I'll be there with my 67 GTX Hemi convert. It is part of the Muscle Car Review 50th anniversary thing, and will also be going thru the Vintage Certification process.

I'm working my [censored] off getting things together. Got the final list of the cars in the Barn Finds section, and it is a doozy this year. Lots of rare Mopars!

Thinking about making the drive if the weather isn't too bad. Is there a preferred hotel in the area?

There are a number of hotels right across the street from the convention center. Many have special rates for MCACN attendees.
From the show website, it looks like several of them might still have available rooms-
http://www.mcacn.com/hotels.htm
Outlook forecast I saw the other day said it would be warming up some here next week. Hopefully no chance of snow like we got nailed by in 2015! luck

I may go. I am supposed to give a lecture for work through our video conference on Friday to our reliability group in Chicago. I was planing on flying to Chicago after work to attend MCACN, then fly home Saturday. I am seeing if work will cover airfare and I do my lecture face to face. If so, I am definitely in. I have been wanting to attend for many years now, but something always seems to come up. Maybe this is the year.

Not sure what their ages are, but if they are 8-16, consider having them do the Hagerty Youth Judging deal on Saturday. My 8 year old Grandaughter did it and had a blast. We use owners that make sure the kids have fun and they get them into the cars.

We have tons of cool and free stuff for the kids to plant the seed...

Indeed this is an incredible year for Mopars at MCACN.

We have a bunch of Mopar Unveilings, the crazy rare triple black RT/SE Gator Grain unrestored Challenger with an amazing story, A, B, E and even a few C bodies, including a Sport Fury GT sunroof car being unveiled, the UFO, along with Tom Tignanelli and the Hemi Honker A/WB cars and way too much more to list.

Has anyone seen our new Chicago area billboards? We have eight running right now and I am quite sure the Mopar fans will love them!

The DoubleTree and Embassy are now sold out, but there are rooms available at the Crowne Plaza and Hyatt right across the street and the aLoft with door to door shuttle service, all with great rates if you book now.

Hope to see you all there!

Only way you'll get me to a car show is if it's attached to a really good swap meet, and even then I may not go into the show area.

The quality of the cars Bob assembles for this show is outstanding. If you ever get the chance to be there when the show closes on Sunday and 3/4 of those cars fire up in the building and head for the exit, you will never forget it. Absolutely amazing to experience. Stop and say hi at the "smashed fury" in the barn finds area. I havn't had it out of the garage since Carlisle 6 years ago.

My GTX will probably be the dirtiest car there. I drive it and I hate cleaning stuff. Oh well.

Edit. Ryan will probably have a dirty barn find car there to redeem me! Can I park next to it? smile

I'll be there on Saturday with a buddy of mine. We went last year and it was fantastic. Well worth the drive and price of admission (it's a bit salty for some). It's like seeing several muscle car museums at the same place! I hope I get to meet a few of you guys. You all need to wear MOPARTS shirts or something. lol

Every year for past five years I’ve wanted to go. This year I don’t have my teaching obligation so I bought a airline ticket to Chicago (found a good fare on United through works travel agency) and staying across the street. Did the first half of the day there and I’m pretty impressed. Some top notch cars, both Mopars and other makes. I’m glad I experienced it. I’m taking pictures but need to wait until I’m home to post.

I have been to every show since the first one. The quality of cars at this show is amazing. Thanks to all the people on here that help put on the show. Ryan the barn find section was the best yet. My favorite car this year. The unrestored, 70 HEMI Challenger R/T Triple black gator grain top. White tail stripe. The car I would of picked in 1970 if I could of. Keep up the great work.

I was assigned watching the stage area all day Saturday and Sunday. The stage area was near Mopar alley. Though I was sitting near a gold '72 Vette they had displayed in the stage area. I wasn't exactly hiding!
Been a long 4 days but great show! Unbelievable lineup of cars as usual. drool
