The word Mopar is synonymous with many performance-related items and among them are Hemi engines, plum crazy paint and Plymouth Superbirds. All of these pieces of Americana and more will be on display during the Fifth Annual Landmark Mopar Southern Classic, April 28, at the Atlanta Motor Speedway.
A Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird, made famous by Richard Petty, an original 1966 Dodge Hemi Charger and a L'il Red Express muscle truck are among several famous vehicles on display on the AMS infield. Last year's show included two 1969 "General Lee" Dodge Chargers, from the TV series "The Dukes of Hazzard." Countless vendors will be on-hand and enthusiasts will be able to strap their classic Mopar onto an engine dynamometer and measure their car's horsepower output.
The Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure will be present, providing 160-mph ride-a-long laps around Atlanta Motor Speedway's high banks in a NEXTEL Cup style stock car. Show entrants and vendors will have the opportunity to drive their show vehicle on the track and roundtrip airline tickets and an 18' car hauler as well will be given away.
This one day show, in association with the North Georgia Mopar Club, will feature more than 35 different show classes and offer a parts corral consisting of new and used Mopar restoration parts. A Manufacturers Midway with vendors offering new aftermarket products from restoration and performance part giants Year One and Goodmark will be on-site.
In addition to the automotive-related items, the Children's Plymouth Pavilion featuring inflatable toys, clowns and face painting will also be at the show. Landmark Dodge will bring several showroom 2007 Dodge performance vehicles for display.
