Mopar fans throughout Canada and the northern United States converged on New Hamburg, a small town near Kitchener, Ontario, for the 38th annual Moparfest — Canada’s largest Mopar show.
Cars present ran the gamut from vintage to modern-day, including many muscle cars. There were 1,550 cars displayed in 2016, and 2017 appears to have beaten that number; around 20,000 spectators and car owners showed up. The show has has raised $2.8 million for charity over the past 33 years.
Ten names were pulled for $5,000 in Mopar money, which went to Dan Blanchard from Stoney Creek, Ontario. $6,388 was given away to Cory Stohr and $7,698 to Doug Smith in the 50/50 draws (one per day). Other prizes included three kids’ bikes, and a 1973 Dodge Dart 340 (to Tim Wiles from nearby Kitchener, who showed a 1966 Plymouth Valiant).
Moparfest 2018 will be held on August 18 and 19. The number of new cars (2000 and newer) is limited to 200 per year, based on pre-registration. The show is put on by the Old Chrysler Corporation Auto Club, and sponsored by numerous local dealerships.
