“Makes Football Players Seem Like Pussycats”

Corvettes. Mustangs. Barracudas. Right this way.

By The Editors

No less a high-octane doyenne than Brock Yates — he, the mastermind of the Cannonball Run — once wrote that men who like to drive fast have such an urge to compete that “they make pro football players seem like pussycats.”

Therein lies their pride and independence.

And if you’re like those men, then get your tire-squealin’ ass out to the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, setting up shop in Rosemont next weekend.

Here, we made you a guide to the seven best-looking cars there.

Now in its sixth year, the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals is a gathering of some of the rarest rides from Mecum Auctions and private collections across the U.S.

Like this ultra rare ‘71 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda that sold for a cool $3.5 million this past June.

That’s in the guide.

And an all-black ‘68 Dodge Charger that would elicit an appreciative whistle from Bo and Luke Duke.

That’s in the guide, too.

So acquaint yourself with the seven must-see cars at MCACN.

And get your motor runnin’.

Nota bene: Want more? Our National bureau has you covered with Vintage Wheels, a one-stop marketplace for vintage and classic cars. Buckle up.
