Florida MOPAR Connection Car Club
In the car world, MOPAR refers to a parts company for Dodge, Jeep, Chrysler, Ram, Fiat and Alfa Romeo. The company which was originally started to help owners of these cars to find parts for car repairs or to use in classic cars, has grown into a large community of MOPAR enthusiasts and MOPAR clubs throughout the U.S.
The South Florida MOPAR organization is the Florida MOPAR Connection Car Club. The club was formed in 1987 and has been growing ever since. As the only organized MOPAR club in South Florida, the club has a strong membership of 132 people.
In addition to a monthly club meeting held at Rob Lambdin’s University Dodge in Davie, the club hosts various events throughout the local area. The club’s biggest event, the Annual Florida MOPAR Nationals Car Show and Swap Meet, takes place each March.
This year’s show is scheduled for 10 a.m.to 4 p.m. Sunday, March 6, at their meeting headquarters at Rob Lambdin’s University Dodge. The car show is open to all MOPAR and AMC vehicles and they will be evaluated by trained judges throughout the day. “Best of Show,” “Dealer’s Choice,” and a “Participant’s Choice” awards will be given in both the classic and modern categories, and all participating cars will receive a gold, silver or bronze plaque. There will also be a model car contest presented and judged by Model Car Creations of South Florida.
Last year’s show consisted of 178 cars and so far, 185 cars have registered for this year’s show and registration is still open.
