We Celebrated the life and accomplishments of Don Yenko
on November 17-18, 2012 at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals
at the Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont (Chicago) Illinois.


As the show organizer Bob Ashton described it:

"This Memorial Display will be not only the largest, but more importantly, the absolute best tribute to a Legendary man and his Legendary automobiles. Just for a moment, imagine the lineup that will be gathered under one roof in the Chicago area, in honor of the man who certainly is one of the primary forces behind the instant recognition of the cars we all know today as “Super Cars.”
