The Chicagoland Mopar Connection Mopar Happening car show is this weekend at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere IL.
Saturday the show features the swap meet and the Charger car meet and show.
Sunday is the main show which usually draws 300-400 cars along with the swap meet.
Biggest Mopar show in the Chicago area!
Saturday is forecast to be brutally hot, but weather is supposed to change overnight and be in the 80s Sunday. Special guests there include Mr Norms, Bob and Vicki Aston with a MCACN display, and Mopar Collectors Guide.
Hopefully it will be dry!

I will set-up Norms swag tomorrow in the 100 degree heat, what can possibly go wrong? laugh2 It does look to be good for Sunday, and Saturday I have an open house after the show at my shop in Rockford, so anyone who comes out please come by! I will have flyers at the show with directions, only 13 miles away! wave

Truck is loaded up with whatever I felt like throwing in before jumping in the pool.
I like coming here to see old friends no matter what.
We’ll survive a little hot weather.

Well it sure was humid out there today! I spent a couple hours there and was soaking wet with sweat when I left.
Saw some friends and got some chores done like resubscribing to MCG and dropping a dead red cap battery off with a member here who is planning to gut it and put a small battery inside.
Got back home and parked in my garage before the storms hit. And it’s cooling off. Hopefully the rain will pass and streets dry up before tomorrow morning so tomorrow will be a good show!

We were all ready to go until waking up to knee deep water in the street and the bridge underwater. We thought about leaving after it receded, but they were talking more strong storms last night and today and figured it would be best to stay here just in case it got bad.

If anyone called to have us deliver parts there please contact me if you would like it shipped. I will work with you on the shipping as much as I can.

I set up and sold stuff on Saturday, did ok but I always enjoy just being at this show to see old friends, share stories and as always make fun of Rhino.
I hope today was a great turnout as the CMC puts their heart and soul into every show they put on.
A huge thank you to Roger, Diane and the whole CMC crew for all of your hard work!
Hopefully see you at Mopars on the Mississippi.
Keep up the good work gang!

Long, hot enjoyable weekend! The rains came down hard around 4PM on Saturday, had a few people show up to the shop and a group of 5 Swedes! Hans made them feel at home and gave them a tour of the building. Got home late last night after taking Mr. Norms swag back to his house. It was fun jousting with my friends and acquaintances once again! boogie

Great pic's. Nice of you to share.

And oh my... I have actual pictures of this car from 25 plus years ago. That car struck a cord with me. Wonder if its the same owner. I saw it while racing at Union Grove.

I spoke with the people who had similar cars there and they said that it's a new owner and the guy retired it again. I remember it too. That car sounded GREAT!
