    I was at MoPar-Fest a week (or was it two?) ago. 30'th anniversary of
    the event. It was Saturday and Sunday (Saturday was also the day for
    the Woodward dream cruise).


    Looks like almost 1600 cars (but I wonder if that was the two-day total

    A rough guess is that 90% of the cars came from a 150-mile driving
    radius, which means mainly Southern Ontario. Furthest US car came from
    Kasas I think.

    There were 3 prize cars:

    1968 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S
    1973 Dodge Charger
    1966 Chrysler New Yorker

    Naturally, the vast majority of the show cars ranged from 1950 to 1975

    Would be nice if Chrysler could bring back some of the style and
    personality of those classic cars and combine it with the improved
    engineering and quality techniques of today.

    And for god sake bring back chrome bumpers! Instead of the plastic shit
    that can't take a 3 mph impact without causing $500 in dammage!

    Could you imagine what a 2009 Challenger would look like with real
    chrome bumpers?!

    MoPar Man,
    No Chrysler products from the '40's? That is odd. Where are all the 46-1st Series 49's and of course the "real" Silver
    Anniversary '49 models. I agree with you on the chrome bumpers. These plastic,body colored bumpers look like
    hell, I mean there is no "personality" to the car. Grills used to be the mark of what car you were looking at, but now,
    the all have the generic Jap/Korean grills(except some of the Chrysler products!) My wife picked out her 2007
    Caliber because of its different front end look, that and it had a "chrome" surround on the grill! A little chrome is nice,
    not like the 58 Oldmobile/Buick!
