Wellington Motors Chrysler Jeep Dodge’s Cruize as part of “Moparfest presented by Dodge” was Saturday August 14th, and they had a record turnout!
Beautiful summer weather brought over 250 cars from Moparfest looking for something to do Saturday night. Live entertainment was provided Rolly Rocker and the Hemi Heads.
They opened up “Area 51” (Ted & Mike’s non-existent memorabilia and car display) along with the dealership’s showroom (which had in it for sale a ’70 Hemi Challenger clone, an ’06 Ram SRT10 with only 380 miles, a ’97 Prowler, a ’00 Viper Coupe and a Porsche 930 they took on trade on a Viper - - - it wasn’t your average showroom!). People were lined up waiting to get into “Area 51!”
The highlight of the night was the burnout contest which featured Mike taking Ted’s newly purchased ’69 Daytona (yes, it was a real Daytona) and doing an amazing burnout. A 21 year old girl, Megan Zelinsky, won the burnout contest with a ’73 Scamp.
It was a great time and there was a huge crowd. They’re a cool dealership and the most amazing part — they didn’t charge anything for the show!
Wellington Motors has sold Chrysler vehicles since 1940.
