SEMA 2009: A walk through Mopar Alley
I have an appreciation for all sorts of cars, but deep down I’m a
Mopar man. I’ve owned Fords and Chevys, but my favorite cars have been
my 1983 Dodge Mirada 340 and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340, and when I get to
events like SEMA I’m always very excited to see what Mopar has in store
This year, I have to admit that the indoor Mopar display was a little bare, although cars like the Challenger 1320 (click here for more info) and the new Dodge Avenger pro stock car (more info coming soon!) made the display worth the time.
there was still Mopar Alley. The area connecting the Central Hall and
South Hall runs you through a parking lot and atop a busy overpass, but
for years now Mopar has bridged the gap with a variety of new and
vintage Mopars – both privately owned and featured vehicles owned by
This year was no different, as Mopar featured a good sized group of
new models, along with the winners of their 2009 Top Eliminator
contest. These six vehicles were chosen from a large group of entries
and were selected as the winners of Mopar’s Top Eliminator contests
across the country at events like the Woodward Dream Cruise, and the
prize was the chance to be featured at one of the world’s most visited
automotive trade shows.
