Jump-start your summer family-fun events and plan to attend the largest ALL MOPAR car show in the upper Midwest. The 25th Annual Midwest Mopars in the Park National Car Show & Swap Meet will be held on Saturday, May 30 and 31, 2009. This year’s car show is being held at its new location at the Dakota County Fairgrounds in Farmington, Minn. This great location offers a much larger show field, a larger swap area and a huge FREE spectator parking area with free trolley rides to all areas of the fairgrounds.

The two-day car show and swap meet will feature something for every member of the family including a first ever arts and craft show, children’s activities, music, non-stop entertainment, and a full line-up of vendors and special events. Notably Terri Traen from KQRS radio, Mr. Norm and his famous Dodge Darts, and a host of private collector cars will be on hand.

Don’t miss your chance to see hundreds of pristine Mopar show cars of every year make and model that are expected for this two-day car show vying for 33 class awards. Plus you will enjoy seeing several new classifications have been added to the show bill including a new rubber wheel military vehicles (Willys, Chrysler and Dodge) classification.

Special Guests:
Diane Sox, the widow of Ronnie Sox, will be attending our 25th Anniversary Midwest Mopars in the Park National Car Show & Swap Meet on May 30 and May 31, 2009 at the Dakota County Fairgrounds in Farmington, MN as a featured guest for our Mopar Tribute along with a host of other Mopar Race History making personalities and many of their cars. Diane will be at the show along with two of Ronnie’s race cars owned and displayed by Clark Rand. Since Ronnie’s untimely passing Diane has worked tirelessly for the Ronnie Sox Foundation raising money to increase awareness and early detection for prostate cancer.
