A Note of Thanks

Well, another Mopar Mania is over and judging from the reaction on both show days it was a huge success! There a lot of people to thank as this kind of thing doesn’t happen by itself and it’s nearly impossible to pull of without many people contributing.

We’ll publish a recap of the show and some highlights in the next week or so, but in the mean time there is one person who was left out of the thanks on show day and I wanted to correct that now.

You may have noticed in the last few years that we have had an abundance of door prizes and again this year there was at least something for everyone. In particular we had a set of wheels donated by Kelvin’s Wheel and Polish. Contacting businesses and gathering these donations is a time consuming job and year after year Russel Nesdoly has been out there pounding the pavement and making these contacts. So I am going to take this opportunity to publicly thank Russel for all his hard work. If you see him around in that flashy Challenger of his, try to take the time to thank him as well.

Stay tuned for photos and videos from this years show!
