10th annual Mopar Magic Car Show in Cornwall this Saturday


Saturday June 29, another “don’t miss” summer event takes place along the shores of the St. Lawrence in beautiful Lamoureux Park in Cornwall.  It’s the 10th annual Mopar Magic Car Show which hosts collector cars and enthusiasts from across Ontario, Quebec, and Upstate New York.  

The Mopar Magic Car Show is held rain or shine and runs from 11a.m. – 4 p.m.  

As always admission is free to the public, so bring the family and enjoy the day, and vote for your favorite Mopars.  Your ballots will select the winners of 25 People’s Choice trophies, plus 5 additional “modern muscle” awards for the newer generation of Chargers, Challengers, etc.  Best Club Participation, Long Distance Award, and Lou’s Pick trophies are awarded as well.  All presentations start around 3 p.m.

The day is sponsored by Notman Chrysler Dodge Jeep and is a major annual fundraiser supporting activities of the local Girl Guides.  

This year the 17th Cornwall Pathfinders and Rangers are sending a group of 12 to England, so proceeds from their all day barbecue and 50/50 draw will help defray some of their costs.

Mopar Magic has grown to become Canada’s largest, single day Mopar-only event, and this year we expect to host approximately 275 Mopars. You can check out last year’s show on You Tube under Mopar Magic Cornwall 2012. 

The name “Mopar” was coined in the late 1930’s as a contraction of “motor” and “parts” recognizing Chrysler’s Parts Division.  Since then it has evolved to include a family of iconic brand names including Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth, Desoto and AMC.

Mopar products were renowned for their high impact colours during a past, now nostalgic era, and a colour spectrum of Lime Light to Vitamin ‘C’, Plum Crazy to Panther Pink, will brighten anyone’s day. 

Hemi’s, 440 Six packs, Max Wedges, and even the famed Slant Six will be represented to rekindle memories of your first car, or perhaps the weekly Sunday cruise with mom and dad.

As well, renowned Canadian artist Michael Irvine returns with a huge display of his automotive-themed art, both original and prints.

Fabulous 50’s-60’s-70’s music will be supplied by Johnny B. Good and radio station 104.5 FM will broadcast live throughout the day.

So mark your calendar for Saturday June, 29 and join us for Mopar Magic 2013. It’s great family fun….. and it’s all free.
