Mopars at the Strip

Christian and Maggie (Christian's Magnum SRT8) were invited to Mopars in Vegas. What an amazing weekend he had.

First the crew met in Sandy and did a crawl to Nephi and did a short show. But on the way down Christian had a rider with him.......Lou Santiago from Muscle Car. Lou rode with Christian for the majority of the way to Las Vegas. How sweet is that?

Then on Historic Cove Fort ( http://www.covefort.com/ ) for another short show. In the afternoon on to St. George for yet again.....a short show. They all rolled into Vegas in the evening just in time to get their cars cleaned and shined for MOPARS at the STRIP.

The first day was Friday. Getting the cars lined up and in their spots by opening was a feat. You know how guys are with their toys. They can't display them until they are perfect. Well, perfect they looked that day.

So perfect that Christian's Maggie was invited to a special show that night. One where they invite 20 cars from all the cars at the show to show off their stuff. Mopars puts on a party with a live band, barbecue, dancing and fun for all. Yes Christian's car was there.

Saturday, they had the pony wars as well as other cars racing. Christian was able to stay in the pit and take pictures of all the cars racing. What an exciting thing for him to be able to do. "Nothing like it", he says.

Saturday night walking around the strip also brought its own adventures.......

On to Sunday....The highlight of the weekend. Mopar Enthusiast magazine shot Christian's Magnum for an upcoming issue. A dream come true for a car loving guy like him. He has put his heart and soul into Maggie and to get such a payoff.

Well done, son.
