The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals will again host a variety of unrestored originals from various automakers. The cars are chosen through MCACN’s Vintage Certification Program which is an intense judging and inspection process that focuses on preservation instead of restoration. Preservation classes offer a unique opportunity to learn about how the original cars were really built with certificates available from five levels ranging from Vintage Reference for cars unrestored in at least one Vintage Reference area to the Vintage Time Capsule for cars that are 95%+ unrestored in all areas.

The MCACN will take place November 23-24 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. There are a few remaining openings to the Vintage Certification Program and if you would like more information, visit www.vintagecertification.com and www.mcacn.com.

The construction of the AACA’s new headquarters and library is moving along steadily as the club looks to increase space and facilitate public access to their facilities. Interior demolition has begun to the building and it should be cleared out in about three weeks. Final inspection and assessment of the front of the building will also be done in the next week.

The new facility will be in the view of 10-12 million people every year and with proper marketing, the AACA is hoping to improve their visibility and membership while providing more space and modern accommodations to take on a vast array of projects. The new building will be located at Hersheypark Drive, right next to the AACA Hershey Fall show fields. For general information and donations, visit www.capitalcampaign.aaca.com.
