Gallery: 22nd Annual Mopar Muscle of Central PA Car Show


For the last decade, every year the borough of Muncy, PA, has Corvette, Ford, and Mopar shows on the same day in late September. The Corvette show is on the main drag, while the Ford and Mopar shows are at their respective dealerships in town. For those that want to visit all three shows, transportation is provided at no charge. Depending on the year, the event has drawn more than 500 cars between the three shows.

The Mopar Muscle of Central PA car club experienced an excellent rebound year for the 22nd annual car show after a down year in 2020. The Saturday event kicked off with many Mopar enthusiasts arriving at the Fairfield Dodge dealership well before the advertised starting time. Even with a chance of rain (which never materialized), the flow of cars and trucks entering the dealership lot steadily until midday.

This year the show’s emphasis was on anything convertible, and there were a small amount of early Detroit steel soft tops. However, the majority of the convertibles were Jeeps and PT Cruisers. Overall, there were just under 200 cars on the property, which was much better than 2020, but the car count was down slightly compared to pre-2020 show numbers.

Like many shows, the late-model Chargers and Challengers were well represented at the show. Widebodies, Hellcats, 1320s, and supercharged Hemis crowded the parking lot. The a-body contingent was strong, and there was a surprising number of the 60s and 70s b-bodies. Unexpectedly, very few e-bodies were in attendance. Race cars, AMCs, c-bodies, 80s vehicles, and trucks of all years covered the rest of the show vehicles.

If you are anywhere in central PA, mark September 17, 2022, on your calendar and plan on visiting Muncy, PA, for an excellent Mopar show and much more.
