National Meet in Tacoma this August

It is shaping up to be quite a meet in the Pacific Northwest,  so far we have members coming from all over the United States; Washington, Oregon, Illinois, New Jersey, North Carolina, Michigan, California and as far away as Canada, Australia and Norway. I have talked with many other members who plan on coming as well. See the extended meet information in this issue and make your plans to join us in Tacoma in August.

Chrysler Museum


Now that FCA has closed the Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills and shipped many of the cars to other facilities around the US it appears that they really are closing the museum for good.  It seems that if collectors want a Chrysler Museum, we are going to have to get together and create one ourselves. I floated this idea a bit over a year ago and then pulled back when FCA decided to reopen their museum, for a museum to be successful it will require the banding together of all Mopar owners to organize, fund and build a museum. This task will not be easy, nor accomplished overnight, it will require a dedicated group of enthusiasts to pull it off. The WPC Board previously authorized us to spearhead such a move, our own Bill Adams has agreed to head this phase up. He will need all the help he can get, from all comers of the country to make this a reality.If you are interested in helping with this historic endeavor please contact Bill at xdm@yahoo.com and let's see if we can get the ball rolling on this project.

Show your Mopars

Now that Spring is here it is time to get the old Mopar out of the garage and share it with other people, take it cruises and car shows and enjoy it and let others see what great cars all the Mopars built over the last 100 years really are. I have already been on the receiving end of requests to bring

mine to shows and some charity events and I do show when I can. I have also been on the asking end this year as well as here at Gilmore's we are working on our first ever truck exhibit and we will have our fair share of Mopars in the exhibit. And all the ones committed to coming have come from the ranks of our membership. A big thank you to all of the WPC members who have agreed to lend us their fine Mopar trucks for this exhibit. We'll have more details on these trucks in the next issue.

Until Next Time, Keep America Beautiful, Drive Your Mopar
