The 2012 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN) show is in now the books and it was another phenomenal event. The 2-day indoor show in Chicago attracted hundreds of the country’s finest Corvettes, muscle cars, and customs. We already teased you with a few show photos on Facebook and Twitter, and now a more extensive show gallery awaits you after the break.

This highly documented, unrestored 1969 L88 convertible will be offered at Mecum Auctions’ Anaheim, California event this weekend. The LeMans Blue roadster is widely considered to be one of the most highly optioned and best documented L88’s known to exist. It is scheduled to cross the auction block about 1:20pm Pacific time this Saturday, November 17th.
In the late 1970′s the 3rd generation Corvette was languishing thanks to an aging platform and new government emissions and fuel economy requirements. Eager gearheads would do just about anything to make their ride stand out from the crowd. Enter customizer Les Dunham and the Corvette Caballista. His Dunham Coach Motor Car Company built just 50 Caballistas between 1977 and 1982. The example seen here is a later model based on 1982 Collector Edition Corvette.
Our friends at ProTeam Corvette Sales will be hosting an all-day Corvette seminar and judging school on Saturday November 10th.

This 1973 red Corvette doesn’t really seem like the kind of car that Kelsey Grammer would drive.
But then again, Grammer was just portraying that snob Fraiser Crane on Cheers all those years.
According to an ad on eBay trying to sell this Corvette, the owner bought it from Grammer in 2003 and has stored it in a temperature controlled garage at his Woodland Hills, California home, ever since.
No matter how you drive your Corvette, Corvette Specialties has the parts to make it look like new again.
The good folks up in Mounds View, Minnesota have been in business for more than 30 years, and they definitely know how to promote their store – with a rockin’ and rollin’ C3 cutaway Corvette that bares its soul to show off many of the parts they stock.

Does your 1970-1972 Corvette still have the factory original carpet installed at St. Louis inside of it? If it does, then a C3 aficionado would like to hear from you. The NCRS Member is working with Al Knoch Interiors on potential improvements to their early C3 carpet patterns. Find out how you can help influence the next generation of reproduction floor coverings after the break.
While perusing the Corvette Forum a couple days ago we stumbled across a thread created by member “Zuendler” who recently took his 1969 Corvette through the Italian, Austrian, and Swiss Alps. We always love hearing these stories about owners driving their cars on long journeys and his breath-taking photos intrigued us even more. No passport is needed to see more shots and a video from his incredible trip after the jump.
