The Feature Mopar's this month is a member I have known now for almost 30 years. Glenn has added to his Mopar collection and now is coming to club meetings with his: 1975 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham St Regis coupe. Here is his story:
I have always loved big cars and always admired this body style. I came across it on craigslist but it was in Boulder City so I didn't bother to go look at it since I already had too many cars. It stayed on craigslist a long time and the price kept going down so I finally went to look at it and ended up buying it. It had been sitting for years and needed some TLC but it was clean and straight and it ran so I brought it home. It has been a work in progress but is coming along a bit at a time. It's a 440/727 with power steering/brakes/windows/door locks, and seat. It has A/C which is working now. I have everything on the car working at this point and with new tires and brakes it drives like a dream. It's white on white on white which is very nice in the desert. It is big, soft, quiet, and comfortable and is a pleasure to drive. I love going to the club meets and seeing all of the Chargers, GTXs, etc but this is what appeals to me and I'm always the only one at any car show. I also love the fact that it can be driven year round without hibernation periods. The photos are in FLASH you won't be able to view the images unless you have Adobe Flash.

The Mopar Feature for July is a friend and just about as close to family as one can get. Glenn and I go back to before I even dreamed of doing a car club. Glenn has been buying and selling a few Mopars in the past couple years and now has added yet another Chrysler to the club. Be sure to click on Glenn's Chrysler to view more photos. Please read his story too under the FEATURE VEHICLE column.
The club is going out to help out a local business Saturday morning 7/25/15 over at Discount Tires 900 N. Nellis Blvd from 8am until 10:30am. Members you need tires? Come on over and ask for Pat.
I also want anyone visiting the site here to click on the CONTACT button. I just posted Tony's Parts business card under my Business Cards there. Tony has some great Mopar stuff for anyone that needs to build a Mopar back to what you want. He has been on TV too with Graveyard Carz. My contacts I have there are all A-Z. A few good Mopar and local business members there too. Check it out. By the way Tony helped Smilin' Ed with a very cool and rare item for KRISSY the ornoment on the grill of my 1968 Dart. You just don't see that on many Darts, Tony hooked me up when I was building KRISSY. Thanks man!
I formed this club in July 2002 with the idea I just wanted a few more cool Mopars to park my 1969 GTX by. Over the years this club has grown to be known in many states, and also other parts of the world. As of this date we have 367 vehicles and 228 members in our club and we continue to keep growing! We 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!
