The Feature Mopar this month is a 1967 R/T. This Mopar has been in our family since the early 1980's. It is still registered to my mom in Pennsylvania. The car was a very typical '70's street machine with black cherry paint, big tires, a six packed 440 and crushed velvet interior. After it was vandalized while in storage, it was last on the road in 1989. It sat in various states of restoration until 2011 when Dave Whitenack towed the car to Indiana where he and Todd Keen performed the body any paint work. the 1967 440 HP engine was rebuilt with a comp .525 lift cam, 915 heads, stock carter AFB carb and 1967 exhaust manifolds. The 727 transmission has a 2800 stall converter, reversed gear pattern and manual valve body. The 8 and 3/4 rear has a sure-grip and 4:10 gears. It still needs some odds and ends but it is nice to drive after nearly 30 yrs!

The club Annual Poker Run with Timbers Bar and Grill won't be with that business this year. I am discussing the ride of Mopars around Vegas with another venue. Details will be announced before October.
Many Car Events are coming to Vegas from now until the end of 2014. SEMA is around the corner, Super Run in Henderson, Russo and Steele. Good friends over at Goldstrom's are having their museum/show again. As the temperatures cool, everybody wants to have a car event! You decide which is best for you. Any of these mentioned I am certain you can Google them and get links. Smilin' Ed

Mopar of the month is a 1967 Coronet R/T. This Mopar is one of a few other Mopars this member owns too. I also wish to make a note here. This member is a local dentist, and local drag racer.. John's business card is under our Contact Page for making a doctor appointment.
The club typically in October has an Annual Poker Run with Timbers Bar and Grill, or another business. We run our Mopars around the city of Vegas then. This year Timbers Bar and Grill is jumping with Football things until November. I may have an opportunity for us to team up with another activity around the same time we do our run in October so plans are still on for a run doing something in lieu of the Poker Run with Timbers. I will post that here and notify members.
I formed this club in July 2002 with the idea I just wanted a few more cool Mopars to park my 1969 GTX beside. Over the years this club has grown to be known in many states, and also other parts of the world. I have very simple rules in our club with no dues. If you think you want to be a part of us simply contact me. I will be more than happy to send you the club rules to become a part of this "Private Club". Thank you, and enjoy our Mopars! We do! I am Smilin' Ed the President.
