2019 Lebanon Valley Mopar Show


Valley of the sun.

We featured the Mopar Action magazine-sponsored Lebanon Valley Mopar show at Lebanon Valley Dragway in East Nassau, NY in our august 2020 issue. Here some pictorial highlights plus all the results of the show.

The second Annual Mopars at the Valley event sponsored by Mopar Action magazine at Lebanon Valley Dragway, was in stark contrast to last year’s inaugural event. Weather was the major factor that made all the difference.  It was snowflakes to sunshine, bone-chilling cold to Florida warmth (well, almost) That meant more Mopes—a lot more—flooding the showfield and the staging lanes. Even E-booger, who made a 5-minute cameo appearance last year came early and stayed late this year, and he trotted out MA current, never ending Beeper3 project.

With the larger turnout, in spite of no free beer, Mo’fans enjoyed a greater variety of Mopes and their custodians as did curiosity seekers who just happened by. The high quality level of restorations and modifieds shows that Mo’fans, unfairly tagged by the Bow-Tie and Blue Oval crowd as cheapskates, are not timid about shelling out their hard-earned coin on their rides—something that keeps our advertisers smiling. Not surprising, late models were out in force, making for a good mix of classic and newer cars and trucks on the showfield and the local rest stops.
