Moparpalooza!

Post by Danteneon » Mon May 21, 2012 2:48 pm

Yesterday was Moparpalooza at Fair Oaks Motors in Chantilly VA. Sponsored by Modern Mopar, and one of the guests was none other than Ralph Gilles. This was a nice local show for us NOVA folks to attend. It kinda snuck up on me because I forgot it was this weekend :slap: I also took next to no pictures, but many other fine people did, so I'll steal theirs :twisted:

We had this one crazy chick taking a bunch of pictures. She drives a pink Neon too. What was her name...oh yeah, it was on her tag too!

Image

Yes, our very own Crystalmarie came down for the event. To say we were surprised would be an understatement!

Thanks goes to Gina Charnley Knight and A.J. Morning for providing some of these pictures as well.

On to some of the Neon pics...

Jaun's car! It's been a year since this beast has seen the road.

Image

Image

To get the group shot, LSP had to have some assitance from her S.O....

Image

There were more SRTs and one other turbo'd Neon there, but they left before the group pics were taken.

Ralph and his team brought some goodies with them as well.

I was hoping to see you guys there since the show was the reason I couldn't come out to see you :(

It was indeed. There were many more cars there besides what I posted. Here is a link to Gina Charnley Knight album for the show.

:thumbup: You got both LilSparkPlug and Ralph Gilles to attend ... I'm impressed. I wish I could have seen the new Viper.
I still remember seeing the original Viper when it was introduced to New Orleans.
I was already an "old" Mopar fanatic in 1992-3. :rofl:

I was hoping someone would post about this. SRT had it up on facebook a few hours ago. Looks like a great time; they said it was the first time the Viper was next to a neon. That's one heck of a privilege!

The pic of the new Viper and Lucius is the best. The more I see of the new Viper, the more outdated the Corvette looks.

Hell yes I have been waiting to get some of these pictures. And yea we have a very healthy neon/srt-4 scene in northern VA but besides lsp there was like 15 neons there but yet there was like 25 neon guys there, Some reason neons like to break right before a meet lol im just glad to finally have mine back on the road

None of that was not my doing. Crystal stayed and talked with the organizers well after I left. I was just a lowly participant at this one :lol:

Here's the video of the Viper and I exchanging revs :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOxKFOPj4Wo&sns=fb

I asked if I could take pictures next to it and they agreed! I caught it at just the right time because they were getting ready to load it up for transport. I have a bunch to go through I'm starting on them now. I'll do the Neons first, then the other cars afterwards and post up as I go.

AMAZING weekend, so awesome to meet all of you who were down there!

i'm sure there was some hard work that went into that PT but your car looks way better and cleaner than that crystal!

i absolutely love this shot, captures the rear/side body line better than a lot of the other pics i've seen thus far
