    Moved from Ohio to Huffman 4 years ago. Theres some Mopars in my neighborhood, including a 1968 Hemi Roadrunner, and a Mopar shop at 1960 and 2100. But I do not see anyone really driving their old Mopars other than me. I drive my junk every damn day to work and back.

    I moved to this area ( Shepherd 1 hr n of hoston) 1 1/2 yr ago. It wasn't the weather or mopars that brought me here! Forth poplation here, there are NO mopars! Came from Springfield Joplin Mo area, right on old route 66 and tons of old car activity and cars, mopar is the lesser no doubt! Seems like lots more old car and mopar stuff around Austin and Dallas like said. I am TOO old to change over to GM! or FERD!!!!!!

      Used to drive my stuff all the time but sold all but one and now that I'm about to be divorced, the one that's a project may never see the light of day. And does that shop on 1960 and 2100 belong to Paul Wright? If he's still the owner, everyone around here knows him.

      The Houston has NEVER been a Mopar town....even back in the 60's. It is pretty good to see so many of the new Challengers running around though....brings back the memories when the first gen E bodies were running around back in the day. Lots of people had roadrunners etc here back when they were new but Chevy and Fords dominated the landscape :( however, there were usually our fair share of Mopars at the track on even given weekend.

      I believe it is Paul that owns that shop. Looks like he turns out some nice cars. Seems everyday there is something else in front of his shop.

      I own an icehouse called Texas 146 Hideout, just east of your Shepard location. You are welcome to bring that old Mopar over on Sat and Sun.
      Thought about having a Mopar only car meet the last Sunday of each month. Of course it's a long drive for folks from the Houston area, but it is a nice drive on country roads once you get off US59 or I10.
      And you probably gonna get a few bugs on your car. I am not afraid to drive my 72 Swinger or 62 Belvedere up there.
      81 CR 2125 is the address. 10mi North of Moss Hill on TX146N. Just South of Rye.
      I live in Cove and attend the car show at Home Depot in Clear Lake Shores on occasion.
      Email me if you need directions. I'd be glad to have that Mopar come visit.

      I think Paul sold the shop on 1960 & 2100. Last saw him he was working out of his home, further East on 1960.
