Drive It While You Still Can! Dale Mosti’s 1962 Corvette #goDRIVEit

  Drive It While You Still Can! Dale Mosti’s 1962 Corvette #goDRIVEit In June 2016, Dale Mosti took a ride in his Corvette for the first time in 26 years. He's been driving it ever since, but his eye troubles have worsenedDale Mosti grew up in the car business. His grandfather, an immigrant from Italy and new entrepreneur in America, started the first and only Buick dealership in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, in 1914. Dale's father, who worked at the dealership, eventually opened his own local gas station/service station, so Dale inevitably started working on cars at a very young age.

It’s Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals After Hours Live! Presented By Mecum Auctions and OPGI! This is the 10 th anniversary of MCACN and we are live on Saturday Night November The Brothers Collection is home to both cars , and we had a lot of fun with this episode of Muscle Car Of The Week!

Funny, it's the week before Thanksgiving when huge snowflakes are floating gently onto the pavement outside the Donald E Stephens Convention Center, where inside 586 of the finest muscle cars and Corvettes anywhere in the world are registered and absolutely titillating the thousands of people inside, along with maybe 100 more vehicles in vendor spaces, such as by Mecum Auctions and restoration shops such as Classic Revival Auto Restorations from Colesburg, Iowa and Magnum Auto Restorations in Oklahoma City.

  Chevy Corvette Grand Sport Duels Dodge Viper On The Drag Strip You don't usually see a car braking midway through a drag race, but the Viper does twice. A 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Carbon 65 Edition and a Dodge Viper arrive at the drag strip to decide which American sports car is the king. Once the lights turn green, things get weird.The 2018 Corvette racing here is one of the 650 examples of the Carbon 65 Edition that is available on the Z06 3LZ and Grand Sport 3LT (like this one). The package included exposed carbon fiber on the front splitter, side sills, rear spoiler, and fender ducts. Blue accents add color to the front fenders and brake calipers.

This is the 10 th year for the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals and once again it has proven to be an eye opener. There can be no denying that if you are into muscle cars and Corvettes then the once a year get together in suburban Chicago is the place for all of us.

The 10 th annual Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals held in suburban Chicago this past weekend is known as “The Pebble Beach of Muscle Cars ,” offering the best of Detroit’s performance cars of the 1960s and 1970s. Which made it that much more difficult to spend my imaginary currency on cars I

Car clubs are there and judges are judging, like Bob Perkins and Rick Campbell from the Mustang Club of America. We also saw Frank Badalson, whose specialty is Mopars. Roger Gibson of Gibson Restorations was purported to be there, but the show is so large we did not run across him. Men with clipboards and judging sheets, four, six, and sometimes eight judges per car descend upon the cars like "to heck with winter, we are still enjoying our car hobby!"

Craig Jackson of Barrett-Jackson brought both Li'l Red and The Green Hornet, two Shelby-American prototypes, the former a barn find, and the latter restored. We also counted a dozen cars spaced 360 degrees in the huge Mecum Auctions tractor-trailer rig. You will also see in our photos the biggest group of barn finds ever, 20 or so of various makes, including a Hemi-powered Plymouth GTX convertible and an SS AMX—oh, even a Devin for sports car lovers. Every car wore its original dust.

10th Annual Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in Chicago, Illinois.
There can be no denying that if you are into muscle cars and Corvettes then the once a year get together in suburban Chicago is the place for all of us. This is the 10th year for the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (Mecum Auctions is the title sponsor and Bill Stasek Chevrolet is the presenting sponsor) and once again it has proven to be an eye opener. We may never be able to get our "fix" when it comes to muscle cars and Corvettes but the two-day MCACN event goes a long way toward satisfying our "thirst". The term "muscle car" and Corvette have since the earliest days been synonymous.
