The Donald E. Stephens Convention Center on the outskirts of Chicago was packing some serious Mopar heat during the annual Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN). And while there was plenty of Ford and GM hardware strewn across the halls, it was the rows of Shaker E-Bodies, factory Hemi and Max Wedge Super Stock race cars, and even some rare Dodge and Plymouth oddities that were left for dead but brought back to life, stopping the crowds in their tracks. If it's ultra rare, bizarre, or something with a sorted and interesting past, you'll see it only at MCACN.

For Mopar lovers, the MCACN event is a great way to end the car show season, and being indoors and under one roof, it's pure sensory overload. Created by Bob and Vicki Ashton, MCACN assembles the very best muscle car samples of all the brands, not just Mopars, and celebrates certain themes and/or historical milestones of certain nameplates and even options. That's why we love the MCACN show — it's always something new and different year-after-year.

There were also numerous unveilings of many cool, rare, and notable Mopar muscle cars that have been lovingly restored and ready for the public to see them in all their shiny glory. This is a MCACN tradition that we've always looked forward to every time we roll through the front door of the convention center.

Another highlight of MCACN is the Barn Finds and Hidden Gems section. This is where the strange, eccentric, abnormal, and exotic muscle cars come out of the woodwork, or in some cases, the earth itself, and appear at the show. It's been a crowd favorite despite some interesting and musty odors coming from the worn-out interiors of the vehicles on display. Mopar aficionado and HOT ROD contributor, Ryan Brutt, puts his heart and soul into making this one of the best parts of the MCACN show.

If you haven't been to MCACN yet, make it a part of your car show itinerary now. It's always held the weekend before Thanksgiving and fills a void in one's Mopar hunger right before the holiday season.
