2015 DAMM at the Chrysler Museum

In September 2015, Detroit Area Modern Mopar (DAMM) members returned to the grounds of the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Michigan, for the last DAMM meet of the summer.

The group was founded by Anthony Grifka in 2013, and has grown from a few high school friends to over 1,500 members in 2015. Coming from a family of Chrysler employees, Anthony was exposed to Mopars at an early age. “From those experiences my love and passion for Mopars grew, and I wanted to share my passion with other enthusiasts.”

That Mopar passion runs deep; over 350 vehicles were on display at the meet. From Hellcats to Rams and everything in between, just about every modern mopar was represented. A convoy of Mopars from the sister group across the Detroit River, Windsor Area Modern Mopar (WAMM), came to join the festivities.

FCA and the Szott M-59 CDJR dealership provided show vehicles, on display at the foot of the Chrysler Museum entrance. Some of the standouts were the Jeep Wrangler Africa, the Dodge Challenger 1300, and the Ram Bumblebee, with its eye catching matte yellow finish. The Hotwheels Charger Hellcat Stormtrooper edition was in attendance and brought along two special friends.

The most special car in the bunch was a B5 Blue Charger Scatpack, which sat on display during the entire meet until it was presented as a surprise to its new owner during the group photo. As a gift from his mom and brother, with contributions from DAMM, the Charger was presented to Anthony Grifka for his 21st birthday, and his hard work.

DAMM also held a toy drive to provide toys to sick children in local hospitals, and a sock drive to support Socktober. There was good food, good music, and an opportunity to mingle with other Mopar brothers and sisters.

Allpar update: A museum volunteer wrote that the museum was opened for the group; its members were well behaved and respectful of the exhibits. The Walter P. Chrysler Museum is now rarely opened, but is maintained for special occasions such as this, and is likely used by designers and to bring some new employees up to speed on company history.
