Hello from Las Vegas everyone!
Our recently completed 1969 Camaro, the Coolest Camaro In The World according to Car Craft, is on display at the Bridgestone tent in Las Vegas. We highly recommend Bridgestone tires to all of our performance minded customers! Be sure to stop by and see the car in person. Read more about the car here.
Despite the weather we had an excellent turn out for our annual open house this year. Big thanks to everyone who was able to make and we hope to see you all out here again next year! To watch a short video taken during the event please visit the link below:
We just got back from the three day Rolex Kentucky equestrian event. MCR is touring with Bridgestone this show season and this event was one they wanted to show our Camaro at, it was definitely something different and interesting from what we are used to. It was an equestrian event where they had show horses, jumping, going cross country, etc but luckily none were near the cars. We found that a lot of the guys that came to the event with their wives and girl friends were more interested in our Camaro than the horses! We had a great time! Be sure to check out some photographs taken during the show at:
On Tuesday, April 18th, at approximately 2:03PM MCR descended upon downtown Chippewa Falls, WI with our 1969 Camaro Top Secret Project 99. Well, it was top secret until it was featured on the cover of the July 2011 Car Craft Magazine!! The Camaro was recently selected to be one of the 12 cars to be featured in the 2012 PPG Platinum Calendar. Teaming up with Maux Creative Studio out of Chippewa Falls who scouted a very cool location in the down-town area. When looking for an area to shoot your own car try to find some where with low traffic, textures and colors that you think will compliment your car’s colors and be sure to have any permissions to use the location ahead of time; these are the tips from Maux. Their photographer John Statiorus was there to photograph the car; John has been with Maux Creative for over 11 years and a photographer longer. Be sure to keep your eyes open for the 2012 PPG Platinum Calendar available at paint and body shops near you soon! Click here for photographs taken during the shoot (not the calendar shots). Read more about the car here.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the MCR displays at Chicago this past weekend, and Minneapolis the weeked before that. We had a great time showing off the April 2011 Car Craft Cover Camaro restored by MCR – “The Worlds Coolest Camaro”. We also displayed a Mopar Collector Guide cover featured 70 Challenger, Mopar Muscle cover featured 68 Dart, and a fresh ’71 Cuda all fully restored by Muscle Car Restorations. The cars were all very well received! Thanks again to everyone who stopped by our display and we hope to see you again this car show season. Great shows!
