The Steel Valley Super Nats car show is back at the Canfield Fairgrounds after ten years in Salem.

CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – The Steel Valley Super Nationals car show is back in Canfield.

The Super Nats is where you’ll find a vintage Mustang paired with a ’57 Chevy.

“We’re very excited to see it back in Canfield. A lot more cars, a lot higher-end stuff out here,” Chris Johnson said.

Johnson works for John Kufleitner’s Galleria of Vintage Cars in Salem, which has its own corner of 12 vehicles, including a ’55 Chevy pickup, a ’65 Ford F-100, a ’29 Model A Ford and a 2015 Maserati.

Canfield’s Dave Murdoch has his ’58 Corvette, the only year it had a louvered hood and spears on the trunk, at the show. It’s looked like that for 13 years.

“It took me six years to complete it. It’d been an old drag car and it was really in rough shape when I got it,” he said.

“That’s all I own is Chevrolets,” said Anthony DeGenaro, of Liberty, who had his ’66 Impala parked under the same tent.

He called the color “artisan turquoise.” Under the hood was a 327, the mainstay engine of the ’66 Impalas, which were the first cars built at the GM Lordstown plant. DeGenaro’s Impala was built in Wilmington, Delaware, though.

“At the time the car was built, there were ten factories building these cars throughout the United States,” he said.

The Steel Valley Super Nationals continues Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The after-party will be held Friday and Saturday nights at the Chili’s parking lot in Boardman.
