9th annual Mopar Magic Car Show


It’s almost that time of year as we prepare to welcome participants to Lamoureux Riverfront Park in Cornwall for Mopar Magic 2012.  

Last year 253 Mopars ascended on the Seaway City from across Quebec, Central and Eastern Ontario, and Upstate New York, which made this Canada’s largest, single day Mopar – only event. 

It’s the car show you and your family don’t want to miss. 

Sponsored by Notman Chrysler Dodge Jeep, in Cornwall it’s all free for spectators.

From Hot Rods of the 40’s and 50’s to the radical 1960’s styles, to the Hemis and 440 cars of the 70’s muscle car era, you will see it all.  

We also welcome the modern muscle cars of today, with the current generation of Challengers and Chargers, etc.  There will be something of interest for all automobile enthusiasts. 

As well the colour spectrum from Lime Light to Vitamin ‘ C’ Orange to Plum Crazy and Panther Pink will be displayed as high impact colours that were only available on certain Chrysler bodied cars of the day.

As you enjoy this walk down memory lane you will hear comments like “my dad had one like this” or “Aunt Mary drove one of these”, and in the end you will probably wish you could join the list of enthusiastic Mopar owners.

As a spectator you will be given a ballot to vote for your favorite Mopar (Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth, Desoto, etc.), and your votes will decide the 30 winners of People’s Choice trophies as well as other awards.  

Car registrations begin at 10 a.m., so you can leisurely enjoy the day as well as the barbecue sponsored by the local Girl Guides.  

The Guides will also offer 50/50 tickets as a further fund raiser.  

Fabulous 50’s/60’s/70’s music as always, is supplied by Johnny B. Good and for that automobile art collector, Michael Irvine returns with a great selection of original artwork and prints.

So mark your calendar for Saturday, June 30, and join us, rain or shine for Mopar Magic 2012.  

It’s a fun family time and it’s all free.
