Thanks to all of the Mopar Muscle Club of NM members, the Amarillo Area Mopars, the El Paso Mopars, the NM Challengers Club, the Great PlainZ Modern Mopars of Oklahoma, tand any other club that I failed to mention. Everyone who came from out of town, in town, and around town. THANK YOU!!!!

Congratulations to Thomas Gutierrez of Albuquerque on his win of the 18 foot dovetail car trailer after purchasing two tickets at the show . He was very excited and said thank you to all. Thanks to everyone for participating in the raffle again this year. Maybe next year, it will be your trailer!

GREAT BIG THANKS to Bob and Sylvia of Jacksson's Trailers for pushing trailer tickets at their place and selling them like crazy (sold 136 tickets).

We hope to see everyone again next year for the 2017 Mopar Muscle Club of New Mexico Mopar Fest.

We'll be re-adjusting the classes and working on lessons learned for our 2017 Mopar Fest so stay tuned for more details as planning has already begun!

Thanks again to everyone who attended and congratulations to all of the winners!
