10th Annual Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in Chicago, Illinois

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.

Ever hear stories about places that don't exist anymore? I had traveled through Wisconsin many times over the years, unfortunately after a place called the Dells Auto Museum had closed its doors. I had no idea what was behind those doors, but I had heard stories from friends that it was a nice place. As fortune would have it, I met the son of the owner, and he took me to see the few cars they had left.

Check Out This Alaskan Treasure Trove of Awesome Vintage Mustangs You might not think Alaska has a bunch of American muscle hiding in its barns. You'd be wrong. When you think of places to find vintage muscle cars, Alaska probably isn't the first state that comes to mind. But, as Tom Cotter from Hagerty's Barn Find Hunter YouTube series finds out, it's a treasure trove of cool vintage machinery. After discovering a '50s Ford truck cab with 9/10s of a mile on the odometer, Cotter gets a tip that an estate is being sold off, and it includes some serious machinery.

Lance Tarnutzer Jr., the grandson of the museum's owner, and I had talked online through social media and met at various car shows around central Wisconsin through the years. But timing just never quite worked out to get out to the family farm and see the collection. One cold winter day plans fell into place and I made it to the farm.

I met with Lance and his dad, Lance Sr., out at their storage barn, which was a converted chicken coop. We chatted a bit about how in years past, after church, Lance Sr. and his father, Dick, used to go get the local penny saver at the gas station, circle a handful of cars between $50 and $500, and then check them out, bringing a few home every week. Didn't matter what it was—they would just go buy a car. Dick was a Ford man, but appreciated it all. That's how it all started, and from there they built their collection, buying and selling. Eventually Dick wanted to share his collection with the public, so he rented a building in Wisconsin Dells and started the museum.

Of all the cars they liked, the family was really into pace cars. It didn't matter what kind of pace car it was—if it was at the front of the pack during the parade laps at a NASCAR or Indy Car race, they wanted it. There was a little bit of everything, from a Studebaker Lark convertible pace car tribute all the way to factory-made Indy 500 pace car Fieros and Camaros. If they could not get an actual pace car model, they would get the same car and make tributes as close as possible to the originals.

The barn was filled from front to back and side to side with cars, most of them too close to one another to even open their doors. Many of them had been in there so long they had sunk into the dirt. But there was gold in the barn. Right up front was the Lark convertible that had been built as a tribute to the original 1962 Studebaker Lark pace car. It showed the scars from a 1999 fire that started in an outside bay at the storage warehouse and quickly spread to the rest of the building, engulfing the warehouse that housed a good portion of the cars that were not on display or in this barn. The family lost 53 cars, 43 of which were pace cars of some form. The Lark was lucky to have (barely) survived.

Across from the Lark was a car that I not-so-secretly lust after, a 1966 Mercury Comet Cyclone GT Indy pace car convertible. Only 100 S-Code pace cars were built in 1966, and they had two in the same barn! All of the cars were the same: red with white interior, 390 V-8, automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, power top, and handling package. I had never seen a single one in all my travels, and here were two, sitting in an old chicken coop.

It got even better. There were two 1963 Impala SS 409/four-speed convertibles, a 1970 Cougar Eliminator Boss 302 owned by Lance Jr., a Ford Torino GT convertible with a Shaker hood, and the list just goes on and on.

This was just the first building for long-term projects. These were the cars that the family hoped to get to someday. In the other storage building, most of the vehicles were running and driving. This was the same building that burnt to the ground in 1999, along with the cars inside. The family rebuilt it and stuffed it full of even more cool cars.

Check Out This Incredibly Rare Macho Trans Am Have you ever heard of this Mecham build? In 1977, brothers Dennis and Kyle Mecham began giving the “Yenko” treatment to Trans Ams under the name DKM. The offspring of a Phoenix-area Pontiac dealer, they had access to brand new Trans Ams without issue. Boasting enough performance knowledge to reinstate the power lost due to growing emissions equipment on the factory cars, they began adding turbochargers and, by the next year, had evolved to completely rebuilding the powertrain.

Walking in you immediately notice an overcooked Superbird. Have you ever seen aircraft-grade aluminum melt? Neither had I. The Superbird wing got so hot, it melted to just stubs on the rear quarter-panels. Before the fire removed the paint job, it had an intricate red, white, and blue scheme with stars and stripes. Some of it remains on the lower parts of the car, providing a glimpse of what it used to be. Thankfully the car didn't burn to the ground, and the 440 Six Pack, transmission, and most of the body is restorable.

This building was just like the coop, packed end-to-end with cool cars. Many of them were pace cars as well, including a rare 1964 Chrysler 300 pace car and a pair of restored 1967 and 1969 Camaro pace car convertibles. Not all were pace cars, like a 1970 Torino Cobra Shaker-hood car, a 1960 Ford Sunliner, and another 1966 Mercury Comet convertible, also a 390 S-code car, but not a factory pace car replica. This one was better with a four-speed on the floor.

Outside were a few more cars that were serious projects, but complete, including a rare 1969 Plymouth Road Runner convertible, an AMC Marlin, and a 1969 Plymouth Sport Fury convertible. These had been beaten by the Wisconsin elements for so long that it would be quite an undertaking to bring them back to any sort of usable condition.

Last but not least, at the family garage was a handful of cars, including a nice running and driving 1972 Hurst/Olds Indy pace car and a 1984 Pontiac Fiero Indy pace car.

The car I was there to see, though, was buried in the corner. You could barely make out what it was, but once you took in all the Shelby parts around it, and a few other pieces, well, I could not believe it. It was a legitimate 1968 Shelby GT 500KR convertible, one of 518 made. It was in rough shape, but had everything important—original engine, transmission, and so on. It just needed to be redone, but since the owner already had another 1968 Shelby GT 500KR convertible that was a running and driving car, it wasn't a top priority.

What a way to end the trip on a high note! I thanked Lance Sr. and Lance Jr. for taking the time to show a friend and me around their incredible collection. They were happy to do it, they said, and we were welcome back anytime. I see the two Lances often at car shows in central Wisconsin, and they have actually been moving cars around and selling a few. The 1968 Shelby GT 500KR convertible project recently went to a new home. So you never know what can happen with these barn finds!
