Camaros at AACA Grand Nationals Last Friday
« on: June 15, 2014, 06:53:03 PM »
The new classes for muscle cars are paying off.  More First Gens showing up at national meets.
Sorry for glare on pictures... sun moved from bright to overcast all day.

Yes, that's what the Grand Nationals are all about --best of the best.

Good show, better weather on Saturday, but the worst in lack of advertising locally. 7 miles from my house, and I found out about it Thursday.

I can't blame this on the AACA, but I was amazed this size of show could sneak in here without at least some warning or propaganda.

like most such organizational shows, if you aren't an AACA member, you probably don't know about their events...  I've been thinking about joining AACA for years..    maybe it's getting to be that time.. :)

All AACA meets are open to the public.  The crowd on Saturday was a little light, so maybe the local chapter did not get the word out locally. Most of the hotels in Lebanon had the meet on their marques along with the "No Vacancy" signs.  The restaurants and stores we went in knew we were there.  At any rate, you can always look at the AACA calendar.

AACA Grand National meet is always a "must see"!  Muscle cars are becoming more & more popular there.  Also, even if you don't have a particular interest in the brass era cars - you'll appreciate the incredible level of detail & workmanship.  Next year it's going to be in AZ, so the participation will probably be down a bit - the membership is not as heavily concentrated out west.  They try to move it around the country so that everyone is within reasonable driving distance at some point.  It's a very friendly group of car people!
