Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals
By Nostalgia Drag World
Nostalgia Drag World was on hand for the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals. What an experience! We would like to tip our hat to Bob and Vicki Ashton and everyone who labored to produce the best muscle car show in the world. Bob and his wife have worked tirelessly to innovate and improve this show every year. It is now the gold standard by which others are judged. Thank you for putting this together for all of us to enjoy. We can’t wait to see what you have in store for next year, and we have already booked our rooms.
