(Photos by Greg Rourke and Bob Chiluk) – The 2013 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals was once again a mind-bending experience for us. In was a gathering of muscle car unicorns, ultra-rare stuff that people had not seen in years, amazing race cars, factory freaks, and a whole lot more. From the barn find display to the amazing gathering of L-88 powered Corvettes, this show really brought together an incredible assemblage of American muscle cars from the glory days of Detroit. Our dudes Bob Chiluk and Greg Rourke spent some 26 hours at the event over the span of a couple days and shot hundreds and hundreds of photos. In order to keep you conscious and upright, we’re dropping them 50 at a whack. Any more than that and you’d simple black out or lose control of your bladder at some of the stuff in here.
One of the two Boss 429 Mercury Cougars that the factory built for drag racing was at the show, a host of Super Duty “swiss cheese” Pontiacs, and barn finds for days. We’re actually shaking our fist at Bob and Greg as we type this out of jealousy. You’ll do what we did when looking at these photos and every one the process is something like this, “Is that a….woah…”.
If we’re picking favorites, Fred Hurst’s ‘Cuda gasser is damned close to the top. All of Hurst’s cars were immaculate but we think this was his all time coolest. You need to pick your favorites now!
