    Hi All, Just wondered if there are any car shows or Mopar related stuff to do around the Dayton or surrounding areas from September 24th to September 28th Just a quick visit to purchase a car but would love to see a car show or swap meet or something car related while in the US, Any ideas? Also looking for a spare wheel and jack for a 70 Charger if anyone has one that I could purchase while I am there? Thanks for any replies.

        Agree on AF museum.

        It used to take the better part of a day, and now it's MUCH larger!

        If it is still there, stop and get french fries at the shack right before you go in the main gate. They are THE BEST.


        Dayton is a Delco (now Delphi) and Harrison radiator (both gm) town.

        There is (or was) an Airtemp plant, but Mopars are in the vast minority there.

        There may still be two locations of "Burger Boy's Hamburger Heaven"-

        One on the North side, and one on Woodman Dr on the East side.

        They have been featured in car craft magazine as some of the best Friday night cruising spots in America!

          ...and for those who don't know- Charles Kettering invented the electric starter and founded the Dayton Electric Company, better known as Delco.
