2017 Mecum Kissimmee

Our buddy Zach Straits was busy snapping photos of cool vintage racers, Muscle Cars, and other classics at the 2017 Mecum Auto Auction in Kissimmee, Florida.   He was kind enough to share the images with us, so we're passing them to you!    Over 3000 cars went across the block!

We had the tremendous honor of interviewing a true racing legend and outstanding American Bobby Unser at the 2016 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals this past weekend. A 3-time Indy 500 and 13-time Pikes Peak champion, he's a man who knows how to win both on the track and in life. Thanks to Mr. Unser for the time, The Brothers Collection for the opportunity, and the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals for the outstanding event! We'll post the video here soon.

The 2016 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals MCACN show is this weekend!    We'll be there shooting feature videos and interviews, be sure to say hello!

The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show is known nationwide for their unique Special Invitational displays. Each year the MCACN team invites rare cars from across the country, and even outside of the U.S.A. Many cars come in from private collections to participate in gatherings that set the bar for the muscle car world.
 
For 2016, the MCACN team has been hard at work on what may be the finest gathering ever under one roof of Carroll Shelby’s finest for their Shelby Invitational. This will include several GT40’s along with an entire row of original Cobra’s on one side, and a full row featuring an even dozen of the best of the best GT-350 and GT-500 Shelby Mustangs on the other. On the Shelby Mustang side, you’ll see several pre-production prototypes and one-offs, including a fuel injected version. The display will also feature the very first and only 1967 GT-500 convertible, the first 427 Cobra and several of the GT-350R racers, once again showcasing multiple million dollar plus cars.
Ivan's Road Trip
 
Our new friend Ivan came to the US with one goal... to purchase a 1969 Mustang and embark on the great American road trip!    Unfortunately, he had some troubles along the way.   We met Ivan after the recently rebuilt 351 in his new '69 Mustang started eating valve springs.   He was stuck on the side of the road just down the street from the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, so we gave him a hand so he could complete his U.S. circle tour and ship his new ride back to Germany.    Like we always say, old cars make new friends!
