General Motors really hit a home run when they designed the Camaro and Firebird, and if you have a soft spot for the F-body, then you need to make plans now to attend the celebration of the models. Next year, there will be a huge party for their birthday, as the Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird are turning 50-years-old. Join like-minded enthusiasts, at the Classic Industries’ F-Body Nationals that are being held next September (2017), at Memphis International Raceway.
This inaugural car show is sure to be one of the largest gatherings of these historic musclecars, and all six generations are invited to join the party. There will be more than enough excitement and activities to keep everyone occupied, and the Show-N-Shine, car show, drag racing, and swap meet is sure to be second-to-none. If you are not a fan of spending the day in a lawn chair behind your car, the drag racing has classes that range from fun runs to grudge matches, and competitive classes like DOT Street, JR Eliminator, and Super Eliminator. We’re certain you will not want to miss the special exhibition runs that are sure to be a crowd favorite.
The F-Body Nationals will host a swap meet that will rival the best of them, so if you have parts to sell, get registered now. If you’re looking to spend some money, you will surely find what you’re looking for, be it, parts, equipment, or memorabilia pertaining to all things GM. For those of you hoping to find your next project or ready-to-run ride, the car corral will also deliver plenty of buying and selling of F-Body cars in case you’re so inclined.
The icing on the cake so to speak will occur when the festivities are coming to a close, and one result in one lucky person being able to leave Memphis with their very own F-Body. Golden Star Classic Auto Parts is giving away a 1967 Camaro to one lucky person – both registered participants and spectators are eligible. That means you could drive home in a Camaro without forking over any money in the swap meet or car corral. If you’re curious about how to register as a participant in the car show, racing, or car corral, you can register here.
You can get tickets and find out all of the information that is available online at the F-Body Nationals website. You can also contact The F-Body Nationals at (800) 476-6217. What are you waiting for, start counting the days until the inaugural F-Body Nationals, we are!
