Chryslers in the Canyon IV will take pace Saturday, October 13th, 2012.
Note that this is not the third weekend that we usually slate for the event. The reason was the Mack Dick Building.
For those unaware, the Mack Dick Building is a brand new, state-of-the-art facility that will give us a great place to hang out and present awards. The building features a full kitchen, restrooms, projector screens, lots of seating, a sound system, covered out door space, and of course AIR CONDITIONING. Furthermore, should we catch a shower or two the facility will give us cover.
Somehow the state didn't communicate with the park when the reservations would begin...everyone suspected Mid-May...well it must have been early April. Needless to say we are pretty lucky to have landed the weekend prior, so we will chalk it up as win.
Chryslers in the Canyon is truly a one-of-a-kind event. This is an ALL MOPAR CRUISE AND SHOW...AND IT IS FREE!! That's right, free.
When was the last time you went to a car show, with awards, and didn't pay an entry fee? Oh, and if anyone has been to an ALL MOPAR SHOW you are aware that the organizers charge quite the premium for oh so graciously eliminating the mustangs and camaros of the world.
This is a grass roots show. We take the established norm, gold class standards, entry fees, and politics throw them out in the parking lot and do donuts around them with open headers...needless to say, it is a nice change of pace.
You are also all to aware that most car shows take place in a parking lot near a strip mall or run down fairgrounds. That is not the case here. Instead of taking a shot of your car with Walmart or Payless Shoes in the background, you will be surrounded by rugged, canyon terrain that makes for incredible pictures for your Mopar and your family.
Amarillo Area Mopars has once again teamed up with Della Moyer Photography. Della is a local photographer who specializes in car shows. She will capture the entire event on film and should you want any special shots of your Mopar, she will be glad to take them.
Similarly, yours truly, is making a habit of standing beside 200' drop-offs to take videos of all the Mopars coming downhill into the canyon. It is truly a great drive and makes for one heck of a video. Rather than have you purchase an official DVD for another $25 we will have the videos live on YouTube shortly after the show and of course, FREE of charge.
If you are visiting from out of town, we will gladly caravan with you to the World Famous Big Texan Steakhouse! Or if folks want some other type of food we'll help get you somewhere good.
We do things a little differently, but the fact we have gone from 30 cars to 150 cars in 3 years means it mus be resonating well with the Mopar masses.
We invite you and your family to come join us for Chryslers in the Canyon. It is a great time, an incredibly unique and photogenic setting for a carshow, features a nice, scenic cruise, has awards, eliminates all the paperwork and politics associated with most shows, and did I mention it is FREE?!
Chryslers in the Canyon is truly an event you have to attend to appreciate. We have grown every year and the people and Mopars have gotten better and more diverse.
