    The family and I went to a cruise night yesterday evening in Chicopee M.A, the theme was Jeep Night. Mopar Night was last week but we did not go because there was the threat of rain, although they say there were about 86 cars. Here are some pictures from last night, some really nice cars there and I would say a row and a half of Jeeps. I did notice though 2 Jeeps had Chevy power though, sorry I do not have any pictures of those. Let's start off with a some of the Jeeps......

    Anybody like Daisy Duke? (Who doesn't) but here's her Jeep.....well sort of in my opinion. 20210610_182137.jpg

    This jeep below had AMC power!

              THIS was the star of the show in my opinion by far, this should of gotten the trophy instead of that green Roadrunner clone I posted earlier. I was like a kid in a candy store jumpin up and down lookin at this car.....

                Thanks for the pics Eric. Looked like a very nice show. That Charger R/T was awesome.

                  That an insult. Hemi anything loses to a RR clone. Clones belong at the back of the line.

                    :thankyou:I fully agree Frank! :thumbsup: . That clone looked horrible under the hood with the Chevy black and he still wins? I did not at all agree with that. I although think the Charger did not win because he did not register the car to get judged, if he registered he would have had a paper with his information on the windshield and he did not have it.

                    You are welcome Hank! It was a nice show indeed, and yes that Charger was the best Mopar there in my opinion. He so should of won something

                    Hey, I know that dude! (Or at least I did back in the 80's, when I belonged to NeHOA)
                    The story I've posted on here in the past involves the GREAT favor he did for me at a Chicopee NeHOA meet
                    way back then....
                    Short version was my '68 Super Bee (that I had just bought) was overheating like crazy on the drive up from
                    northern VA to the meet (we drove at night and i STILL got caught at the backup at GW Bridge in NYC at
                    daybreak - so I cut through the pylons and took the lower level to get OUTTA there!)
                    By the time I got to Chicopee, I was young, damn near broke and had a new (to me) car trying to melt down.

                    In the parking lot of the host motel that evening, I set about trying to diagnose the problem with the cooling system....
                    IMAG0025.jpg
                    Ray the Canadian member walks up to me, puts his hand in the center of the radiator (the car was running) and says "it's clogged up Ed - and it's for a small block".
                    (The car had a 440 6bbl in it).
                    Great. A bazillion miles from home, in need of a radiator to get home, none to be found and damn near broke!

                    Then someone makes a call to Harlan....and the next thing you know, there he is with a
                    BRAND NEW hemi 26" radiator - and he's handing it to me!
                    I stammered out how I couldn't afford it and he says "did I ask you to?"
                    Holy shit....
                    I asked how I could ever repay him for this great favor and he says point blank "send it back to me when you get home - CLEAN. Use the box it came in, pack it right."
                    Now, keep in mind, I'd never met the man - he was well known even then as the Hemi guru in that neck of the woods and had a shop, but I was a newer member (one of the "Virginia Boys" they called us) and he had NO reason to trust me at all....
                    ....but he did.

                    I enjoyed the rest of the holiday weekend with the rest of the club, then set out for home Monday - and you can bet your ass the moment I got back home, the radiator was carefully removed, cleaned and boxed up - then shipped back to him the next morning.
                    It was one of the first exposures to me of how Mopar guys are truly DIFFERENT than other car guys - and I've never forgotten it.
