On September 2nd, Blaise Alexander CDJR of Greater Hazelton, Pennsylvania, held its 2nd annual Mopars on the Mountain car show. Over 125 vehicle owners showed off their prized rides, and hundreds more spectators looked on while everyone enjoyed the Chamber of Commerce weather.
The event drew vehicles from all eras. The late-model Chargers, Challengers, and 300s were prevalent, but there was a strong contingent of muscle cars and malaise-era automobiles. The engines ran the gamut, which included small- and big-block wedges, Gen 2 and Gen 3 Hemis, slant sixes, Cummins diesels, and even late-model V6s and four cylinders.
The B-bodies were out in force as Road Runners, Coronets, and Chargers were trendy. The E-body numbers were a close 2nd to the B-bodies. AMCs and Jeeps were also well represented. The oldest vehicle was a 1931 Dodge Brothers pickup truck with its original flathead engine.
HazleTints LLC, Denny’s Auto, Petrick’s Auto Repair, American Pavement Maintenance, A&A Auto Store, and Redlite Photography sponsored the car show, providing trophies for the Top 15, people’s choice, and two best of show awards (late model and vintage era). The sponsors also supplied all the door prizes, and several sponsor representatives attended the event to offer products to the attendees.
Jabin Lutz and Jacob Lehman spent a lot of time planning and expending energy to guarantee the show ran without any difficulties. They made sure the car show had excellent music and food vendors, and for those looking to purchase a new or used Mopar, they ensured the dealership was open for business.
Car show calendars tend to fill quickly, so mark Saturday, September 7, 2024, for the 3rd annual Blaise Alexander CDJR of Greater Hazelton’s Mopars on the Mountain car show. The hope is that as the word gets out about how great the show is, it will eclipse the 200-car count next year. See you there.
