Chrysler wants to know if you are a PentaStar.
According to Chrysler, a PentaStar is a dedicated fan: “The ‘Mopar or no car!’ brigade. The people who advance the lifestyle every day through membership in clubs, attendance at car shows and auto shows, … sharing the passion on the countless online boards and social media sites. … who expresses his or her experiences and opinions through stories, videos and/or images … and shares them through one or more social media platforms.”
Chrysler wants to recognize these people and help spread that fire through the new PentaStars Program.
To become an official PentaStar, fill out their form. Chrysler will periodically email you a heads-up on upcoming news and events, give you some links with a roundup of your posts, etc., and, down the road, “might” provide special access to the cars and the people behind them. The company promises not to spam people who sign up, and has an opt-out process.
