    We have gone for the last several years. It's a pretty good day. Not a huge show by any means, but Mopar shows in this area are getting pretty hard to come by. Unfortunately, I let someone else schedule a small vacation to Vegas for us and they chose that weekend.

          Great country track. This event has been there for years. Size has varied over the years. Last several, has been nice event, good swap, good races. Good country folk. IF it rains call before you make the trip, it can get rained out there due to wet.

              I agree, but as I got older, I find beauty in lots of Mopars I hated decades ago! Just me. My wife loves it over the 5 varios Mopes I had before I moved to Tx to be with her back in fall of 2016. Go figure!!!!! lol But then again, I love the 62 B bodies. Wish I had the one back I have had,.. and the 426 Maxie that was in that 68 GTX I bought back in bout 22002!!!!! Would be perfect car!!!

                I agree. Very laid back atmosphere. We park spectator side about half way down. Set up our chairs, grill and cooler and just relax and enjoy the show. Some years there's a pretty good swap meet, others it's just a few guys. Picked up a few bargains there.

                  MOPARS INVADE POSTPONED TO Saturday MAY 12
                  SCHEDULED for Saturday APRIL 14, now Sat. May 12
                  We held out hoping the weather would get better, but the forecast gets worse by the hour. Cold temps, strong winds and heavy clouds, it will be a miserable day to be outside. Let hope for better on Saturday MAY 12!
