Mopar Spring Fling Photo Highlights

The Mopar Spring Fling XXVI was held at Woodley Park in Van Nuys, Ca this past weekend. The two day show attracts Mopar enthusiasts from all over the globe. The event features quite a few days worth of activities including cruise nights, track days and a car show.

California Car Cover was on hand and has been a supporter of the show for a number of years. Early Saturday morning I headed over to the park to setup and talk car care. The main attraction early Saturday is the parts exchange. Nearly 200 swappers set up at the park to show off their Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth parts and accessories. If you are working on a Mopar and need some parts this is the place to be. Starting at 5am this a line down the street of enthusiasts with truck beds filled with parts for muscle cars ready to swap.


After the booth was setup I walked around to check out some of the cars that were on display. Well over 300 Mopar vehicles were there on Saturday. The club that hosts the event, Chrysler Performance West, does a great job of bringing in enthusiasts from all over the country. The club hosts two events a year, this show, and the Fall Fling. You can obtain more information about their events on their website.

Row after row of Super Bees, Challengers, 'Cudas, and Darts filled the park. Though the show featured a lot of muscle cars, there were plenty of Chrysler and Plymouth vehicles from the '40s until today at the show.
