About Us

My name is Kevin Shaw, and together with the help, love and support of my family, launched Mopar Connection Magazine to honor the legendary muscle cars of the ‘60s and ’70s and today’s modern machines.

Since first launching in January of 2016, Mopar Connection Magazine has become the fastest-growing digital magazine for MOPAR enthusiasts – and is the only digital publication of its type to be recognized and officially licensed through MOPAR.

Mopar Connection Magazine delivers the latest industry news, car features that look into the personal emotion of the owner, coverage from events nationwide, and real-world do-it-yourself tech that defines what it means to be a MOPAR lover.

Mopar Connection Magazine publishes its articles daily and completely free to you – requiring no sign-ins, apps, downloads, or passwords to access our subscription-free content, making it the single-most accessible MOPAR magazine in the industry.

Gavin grew up around Mopars in his lakeside home in Ohio, his father showing him nearly everything he needed to know about haulin' some serious rear in his '72 Dart Swinger. Since then, he's made his little A-Body a serious autocross contender and regularly shows the modern boys how an old Dart does it!

Since the age of 4, Cody has been obsessed with everything Mopar. On Christmas of 1998, Cody's parents gave him a rusty '69 Charger shell that his father saved from a field. Cody's garage still features that '69 Charger as well as the additions of a '71 Charger R/T, '71 Super Bee, '08 Challenger SRT8 and a '12 Ram 3500. Cody can truly and proudly say that he is a true Mopar nut in love with all types of Mopars!

Patrick entered the Mopar world when he bought his 1983 Mirada back in 1994, installing a mild 340 a year later that would eventually be built up into the range of 500 horsepower. Today, Patrick daily drives a Hellcat Challenger, but he still has his 340-powered Mirada, as well as a 1972 Demon 340 and a Hemi Ram.

Kent grew up in the shop with his old man and his '70 Charger R/T. His first car was a 1969 Super Bee project when Kent was fourteen. That restoration experience lead to pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a career in manufacturing. Since then, the garage has expanded to include a '67 Satellite, a '72 Scamp, and a 2010 Mopar '10 Challenger.

Ryan is an automotive journalist from Chicago with a pair of Challengers (a '70 and a '09). Normally, in Ryan's free time (which is a lot), he drives around the country documenting old cars in their unrestored condition - also known as "Barn Finds." But he also writes about any sort of cool cars out there.

Starting in high school, Todd really found his passion for automobiles while hot rodding a twin-turbo Stealth. When the LX platform came out in 2005, he was hooked! Since then, Todd's built hundreds of Gen3 Hemi cars from bolt-ons to fully-built motors and just about everything in between. After purchasing a 1970 Dart Swinger in 2022, he's been fully sucked into the world of classic Mopars. Racing, wrenching, going against the grain - he's what you might call a “purist's nightmare."
