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: dellamoyer@yahoo.com

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: http://a.pgtb.me/FfxH6P  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!

If you like that picture of the car Mopar selected for the collage, you might be interested in knowing that the picture you see was taken at last year's Chryslers in the Canyon IV.  How's that for good timing?  We weren't kidding when we said you could get some incredible shots of your Mopar.

If you aren't handy with a camera, we have Della, our pro photographer, on hand to help you see the best of your Mopar!

CIC V: Friday Night, October 11th, 2013 Dinner and a Cruise

For those of you coming in from out-of-town on Friday Night we have set up dinner and a cruise.

We will meet up at Wild Bill's Filling Station at 6:15 PM Friday Night.

Wild Bill's is located at 3514 Southwest 6th Ave, just past Maryland Street:

There is plenty of parking for your Mopar and the menu consists of hamburgers, chicken fried steak, etc.
It is also low key, jeans and a t-shirt work just fine.

After dinner, we will set out on a cruise...Wild Bill's 6th Ave. is actually on Historic Route 66.

If you've got any questions about CIC V we will be able to answer them for you.

You can keep up with the basics, by skimming this post:

The weather forecast is calling for Mostly Clear Skies and Temperatures in the lower-to-middle 70s.

We hope to see you there!
