Moparfest 2012

During a glorious recent August weekend, Team RedlineNorth headed down to Southwestern Ontario’s Moparfest. With close to 2,000 show vehicles and almost 25,000 spectators Moparfest is now Canada’s largest all Mopar show and is a sight to be experienced for any car enthusiast. Started 32 years ago by a few friends with a shared love of Mopar cars the show has grown into a massive charity event that takes over the town of New Hamburg, Ontario for one weekend a year.  The annual event is a fundraiser for the local community with proceeds totaling over $2.5 million dollars from the past 32 years.

Here are some amazing new and old examples of Mopar muscle and design in all their automotive glory.
