I think a buddy of mine, Tony Mazzola, designed the shirts.

Welcome to the forum! :)
I used to go to a few of the Northeast Mighty Mopar shows( FredSmith,Peabody,& NED) I was told the guy running it had health issues (Plymouth Paul???)
Mopars In Motion had taken over the NED gig for a bit but now its a disaster! :(

Hi 68383, Tony and I have been friends since 1984. He was the best man at my wedding. I went with him to purchase his 'cuda ragtop in N.Y. He was with my wife and I when we purchased our '67 Satelite convertible in Carlisle. Best day, best friend, best guy ever. Trying to get him to restore his 'cuda. That car would be the baddest ragtop on the east coast. Later, Scampman :D

Hi MPerry, Since moving to New Hampshire I kinda lost contact with the Mopar community with the possible exception of the ones at N.E.D. I went to the Mopar Megafest at Maple Grove Pa. in June. Although the racing was good, there were only about 50 cars in the show and 10 or so independent vendors. Chet Greenwood stayed about 4 hours and left. To me it wasn't worth the trip. I think it is soooo difficult to put on a show these days, people are very picky about where and how they spent their money. This is NOT inexpensive hobby. Young people just can't see spending kkk of



MPerry, Hi, I think I just deleted my message rant, sorry. I am terrible with putors. Anyway, in response to your post, I have been around the hobby for 30 years. Economics drives this hobby. Times are difficult and prices are going up not down. I am having a Scamp painted as we speak and the materials alone are $1500. Before Scamp is released from paint jail the tab will be over $11k. That hurts!!! The end result is worth the effort, though. It makes no sense to me to have a muscle car without many muscle. 10 years ago 400 horsepower was awsome. Today it is ordinary. My friend Mike in Florida has a stroker 340 in a 'cuda that runs 11:50's all day and he can still go ice cream. Anyway, thanks for listening, gotta go work on the Scamp, Scampman

Doesn't Tony's Barracuda look pretty good? He's mentions his '67 Dart a lot when I talk with him.

I met Tony through the MassCar model club a dozen or do years ago.

Not sure I'm in the right place. I live in SO NH, and just bought a 2014 Chrysler 200 convertible. Was wondering if it's safe to go through a car wash (the kind where it rolls along a track while you stay inside). Otherwise, I'll be forced to freeze my butt off in one of those self-washing bays. Any input would be apprecitaed.

Thanks

Hank, welcome to MassMopar!
Nothing wrong with being a member from New Hampshire! We welcome members from anywhere!

Congrats on the new convertible!
Is your 200 a hard top or a soft top? I would think that matters.
I had family friends with a 2010 Sebring soft top and they had some minor leakage when they took it through the touchless in our town.
I have to say I'd generally recommend against it just because of all the possible leakage points.

Obviously I'm new to this party but FAR from new to this forum...MassMopar , the original and the new and improved version has a special place in my heart . The older guys know me and the newer guys will get to know me . Hopefully we can get back to those days of getting together , either in Rutland again or anywhere else . Looking forward to shooting the breeze and thanks to sneke eyes for sticking with this forum and getting it up and running once again...

See you soon , Matt , old timer . 8-)
