What is a Mopar?
The term “Mopars” was first used by Chrysler in the 1920s and is now used to describe nearly all car models from Dodge, Chrysler, Plymouth, Imperial, Ram, and many others. During the Mopars at the Beach events you can expect to see many makes and models perfectly maintained and customized so that no two are exactly alike. This event is truly a car lover’s dream!
