Chrysler in the Canyon 6 Flyer

Chryslers in the Canyon 6 Pre-Registration Form

Chryslers in the Canyon 6 Pre-Registration is now open! This ALL MOPAR Event will take place Saturday, October 11th, 2014.

 Pre-Registration is vital for CIC 6 for the simple fact it is how we base our classes and awards. If we are going to have a group of 50 70-76 A-Bodies or 50 68-70 B-Bodies we will adjust accordingly. If you do not pre-register, we don't know you are coming and can't custom tailor the awards to our attendees.

 If you are bringing multiple Mopars, please make sure to pre-register each one separately. Similarly, if you know of a friend planning to attend who is "offline" feel free to submit their information. You can share this form via this post, or the direct link to the form online:

Chryslers in the Canyon V Car Show Videos

Here is a little something to be thankful for...

HD Video Highlights from Chryslers in the Canyon V!!  Hopefully you are settled in to host friends and family this holiday season and can share your CIC V experiences with them.

If you've been living under a rock, you will want to check out Della's Chryslers in the Canyon V Pictures, which you can find here:

If you were there, she's probably got pictures of your car.  The pictures have tons of size and print options, plus they ship quick...If you have't ordered your pics yet, what are you waiting for?  They will make a great gift!

Speaking of gifts, if you haven't picked up a Chryslers in the Canyon V T-Shirt, or other merchandise, you can do so here:

Courtney put together a very nice design and you can show your support by picking up some AAM or CIC Swag.

Now that we have that covered...on to the videos!

I'm a little too busy to get every car as it trickles in or out from the venue, but the vast majority should be covered here.  Let's get started with the drive-in video (brand-x vagrants were edited out as best they could be):

 And now, if I missed you there, you should be covered in this show field walkaround.  Due to awards,  I had to go around noon, but again, most of the attendees should be covered:

If you were in attendance at CIC V and managed to take some pics or videos, please submit them to us to be featured here and on the forum.

Also, if you won an award at this year's show and have not been checking your e-mail, please send me your vehicle info and most importantly the spelling on your name...The Winner's List is ready to go minus some spelling, which I want to get right the first time as it will be going up in video format as well.

Thanks again to everyone who attended and helped make this year's event yet another success!  We have already started planning Chryslers in the Canyon VI and hope to make it even better!

Della's Pictures from Chryslers in the Canyon V

Well, the moment you have all waited for is here!

Della took a TON of pictures this year and 1,144 of them are up on her SmugMug Site.

You can find the pictures here:

You can scroll through the pictures, and when you find one you want simply click the "Add to Cart" Button and select from your size and print options.

SmugMug prints very nice photos, the prices are right, and the shipping time is very quick.

Once again, Della does all of this free-of-charge at the show.  It is a lot of work just snapping a thousand plus pictures, let alone having to then go home and edit/upload them within 3 days time.

She has a great time in the canyon, enjoys seeing all the cars, and loves visiting, but getting purchasing her prints is really the ultimate way to say thanks.  Even if you just buy prints of your car, I'm sure it would be much appreciated.  Make sure to scroll through all the pics to not only relive the event, but look for some different angles, Winner's Pics, and maybe even a few aerial shots.

We hope that you truly had a great time at Chryslers in the Canyon V.  It remains a true, grassroots event and the people like Della, who sacrifice their personal time to help make it even better are the people we need to take care of...For those of you first timers and from out-of-the-area, I'm sure after being in the canyon you agree that this is truly the best setting and backdrop you've ever had for a car show.

Della's pictures take advantage of the setting and your presence with a show stopping Mopar to create what should be one of the best pictures you have of your Mopar.

Enjoy the pictures!  And for those of you that missed out on the show, we hope all the pictures and videos help make you realize what you missed out on and encourage you to come back for Chryslers in the Canyon VI.

A big thanks once again to Della for making this happen!  If you would like to contact Della about shooting your event, or if you have any special requests, you can contact her via e-mail:

Enjoy browsing and once more, thanks to Della for continuing to attend Chryslers in the Canyon and making it special for everyone with her great pictures!  The Award Winners will be posted soon if you need more examples of her stellar work!  Stay tuned!

Chryslers in the Canyon V: Thank You for Making the Show a Success!

Well, Chryslers in the Canyon V is in the books.

We were once again blessed with picture perfect weather for a car show...that worked out well for the 120 Mopars we had on site to enjoy the day!!

On behalf of myself and all the other CIC Staff Members, we can not thank you enough for taking the time and funding a trip to come in from out-of-town and join us in the canyon.

We had a lot of first timers and the response I repeatedly heard from them was, "This is the best venue I've ever been at for a car show."  We aren't joking around when we tell you that you can get some one-of-a-kind shots of you and your Mopar in the canyon.

We hope that you enjoyed your time in the Amarillo Area and we would love to have you join us again for Chryslers in the Canyon VI, or any other event.  We have grown Chryslers in the Canyon from a small gathering to what you saw today.  CIC is a true grass-roots car show.  The show's best growth honestly comes from you...When you go back home and tell folks what a good time you had, show your buddies pictures, and relive the experience you help the event continue to develop.  We think word of mouth remains the best asset to Chryslers in the Canyon's future.

Similarly, I have to give a big thanks to everyone "behind the scenes" who work not only at the event, but all through the year to promote, setup, and fund Chryslers in the Canyon.  The awards, pavilion, and anything else you see and enjoy has come courtesy of the contributions of our members.

Della has taken over 1,200 pictures from the show.  As you might have guessed, it is going to take some time to sort through the pictures and get them online.  The minute that happens we will let you know!  Remember, Della doesn't take the pics on an hourly fee, or lump sum for the event, she does it free of charge.  She only sees a return when you order pictures from her site.  As someone who has ordered pics from every CIC and a few other high-profile events she covered for us, I have yet to be disappointed and the pricing and quality of the pictures has been nothing short of stellar.

You may again have the shot at seeing your car in Chrysler Power's event coverage...We will naturally be the first to relay the news!

As usual, the toughest thing for those of us on the CIC Staff Side of the equation to handle was the awards presentation.  There are so many deserving cars and trucks...We upped the award total to 28 this year and would have liked to have had a lot more.  It is a truly demanding task, but we do our best to spread the awards out.  It was said many times today, but this really was an amazing show field.

We lucked out and the park once again cut everyone the group rate admission...They really enjoy getting to see all the cars come in to the park and are very proud to see out-of-the-area folks make the trip!

The next few days you will start to see pictures, video, and more surface online...We will update you here, on the AAM Forum, AAM News Page, AAM Twitter Feed, AAM Facebook Page, AAM YouTube Channel, and AAM Google + Page.

This truly was a great event and we hope that you feel the same way!  Several AAMers and CIC Staff Members have said it was one of the best times they've had so far...That is really saying something!

Personally, I never really get the time I'd like to check out all the Mopars and visit...Testament to how busy of a day it was, I didn't even remember to tell folks that I need your help voting for the Mopar 10 to have a shot at the Mopar Top Eliminator!  I figure I just as well plug it now:  You can vote once every 24 Hours.  I am "Vehicle #5."  Please vote and share the link with your friends!

Again, I speak not only for myself, but everyone behind the scenes and in AAM...Thank YOU for coming out to Chryslers in the Canyon V and making it a success.  The goal remains to provide a place where Mopar folks can meet up and have some fun together.  We hope you will join us again next year!
