11/04/2016 - Pictures from All Aussie Car Day, Waroona

Thanks again to Paul Berkavikius for the pictures and information.

You can view the full album here.

Hi All,

Some pictures (vals only of course) of the All Australian Card day at Waroona.

Very windy and the oval was a sand pit due to re-grassing work. The oval grass was damaged by the helicopters working on the fires there recently, so they dug the whole lot up.

A few stall holders got sandblasted and they took off, no doubt very unhappy.

All the car displays were mostly up wind on surrounding grassed areas and some were on the basketball courts which was well shielded.

My CK never made it, the radiator had died by the time I got to Glen Forest to pick up Peter, so I left it there and we went down in his car.

I put some stop leak in it when we got back and I nursed it home no problems.

That is the second time the top tank has split at the same point, so I will need to find a better radiator repairer.

There are two pics of Paul Monkhouse with Chris Stone handing over an envelope to a gentlemen there, that is the club handing over a donation to a rep of the Waroona Fire Brigade.

There are two pics of a dark red VJ hardtop, it is for sale for $42,000.

I think it is a 245 Auto.

There were a few nice cars in the car parks too, managed to snap a few of them.

Paul.

15/01/2016 - 2016 is go!

The final meeting of 2015 held at the RAC Driver Education facility was a great success! 8 cars were let out onto the track lined up behind one of the professional drivers in their track spec commodore. Each lap a new car become the 2nd car in the procession to follow the instructor giving everyone a chance to see how close than could keep up to them. No helmets were required so speeds were not very high but still enough to get some spirited driving from the cars, or put around and catch up and the end of each lap if that was your preference.

Juergen also spoke to the members and enthralled everyone with his knowledge and experience of both race and street driving, covering everything from safe seating position in a street car to who on the road is a high risk of accidents (that's race car drivers believe it or not!)

 

 

So now we move into 2016! We've already had our first meeting and the next big event on the horizon is the Super Cruise on 12th March. To refresh your memory how cool the Super Cruise is, you can watch some videos made from the 2014 Super Cruise here.

Motorvation is on next weekend which is more for the 'bogan' crowd or car enthusiast it might be fair enough to say, though the event is defintely family friendly and event organizers do very well and the crowd is always well behaved. A small contingent from the Charger Club of WA will be there to cruise, race and just generally enjoy their own and other peoples' cars.

We're also asking all members to send in info via the 'Members Machine' page of the website so we can share your car! Or if you already have your info on the site, maybe update it with any new info.

01/09/2015 - Collie Track Day

It was a cold and wet day but it did not seem to dampen the enthusiasm. Notwithstanding the weather conditions the number of entries was at a level which resulted in the event remaining viable. The cost is still around $100.00 for non members and a little less for members of the Charger Club as the Club does subsidise its members with a modest contribution.

There were 36 vehicles entered with 43 drivers, 13 of whom were Club members. In general terms the entrants drove steadily and according to the conditions. Such conditions present a splendid opportunity to gauge what you are able to do as a driver and how your vehicle will behave. I do not believe anyone stopped driving because of the weather conditions but may have withdrawn for other reasons one of which, at Collie, is brake fade.

One of the youngest drivers and a first time entrant was awarded the Memorial Trophy for being the Driver of the Day -- well done Jansen Rebrovic! In discussions with our Track Observers it became obvious to me that Jansen drove within his limits and in a gentlemanly manner, in others words being aware of what is happening on the track around him. Did he receive expert tuition from his father, a previous recipient of the Trophy?

Our helpers must be congratulated in sticking to the task at hand in such inclement weather. They were all exposed to the elements for a long period of time.

It is my belief this event is popular enough for the Club's continued support of the same. In order to maintain numbers we do depend on the attendance of persons outside the Club and in particular the group who travel up from Albany. They are members of the Great Southern Street Machine Car Club. We thank them for their support and participation on a regular basis which has been for a number of years.

29/08/2015 - AGM

The Annual General Meeting was held recently. Paul Monkhouse has agreed to continue on as President, in fact, all the roles have been retained by the previous people. Kylie Sewell as Vice President, John Hartley as Secretary and Darren Isaacs as Treasurer.

Committee members are Steve Butt, Darren Witte, Paul Najjar, Wayne Sewell, Layne van Smaalen, Stephen Trefry, Bruce Muller and Santo Mannino.

John Hartley received the Trevor Hedge Trophy for outstanding contribution to the club throughout the year.

Layne van Smaalen and Kim Belcastro were named as Club Person(s) of the Year. They have both been contributing a lot to the Facebook page and internet presence of the club, hopefully bringing in more people and cars to events and also the club.

Layne has made videos with club members, talking about their cars as well taking video at club events. If you haven't already seen, you can view videos at the YouTube channel.

Kim has become the clubs main photographer and you can see his work from basically all Charger Club of WA events but also any other important motoring events in or around Perth You would see his pictures here on the website, on the weekly email and also on the official Charger Club of WA Facebook page and also the unofficial Facebook group.

Kim also has relationships with many Chrysler and motoring enthusiasts around Perth and has been very helpful in drawing some of the best Mopars in Perth to Charger Club events as well as helping to spread the word of our club.

21/05/2015 - No Superbird :(

Apologies to the public who went to All chrysler day expecting to see the Plymouth super bird and hemicuda. Due to the unforseen weather these two cars couldn't be taken to the event. I did manage to bring two of the four cars that I intended and to the resilient mopar people who attended I trust that they enjoyed the cars that were there.

All the best frank.

02/05/2015 - Entry forms for Motorkhana available

We've got the entry forms and more information up on the Everything Chrysler Day website ready for you to get your entries in!

If you already have a CAMS or AASA license then you just need to fill out a Motorkhana Entry Form.

If not, the cheapest way is to send in the AASA club license registration application form. When you fill out the Motorkhana Entry from, just put your receipt number where it asks for the 'Competition License Number'.

The final layout of the courses has not been finalized but will probably be something like this...

29/03/2015 - Cruise to Bindoon Bakery

The weather was great today for a cruise and so many car clubs seemed to be out on the roads today. About 20 cars left from the start point in Belmont and a concurrent cruise starting from Tomato Lake ended up intermingled with many of the Charger Club cars for much of the journey until they took a different turn off from Roe Highway. 

 

The Charger Club cars almost filled the car park at the Bindoon Bakehaus and Cafe where everyone enjoyed a great lunch and some chit chat.

 

You can view some footage from today at this link on YouTube.

 

The next club event is the Retro Car Sales Yard at Wannero Chrysler/Jeep on 18th April.

We urge people to pre-enter their cars. We can accept limited cars 'on the day' but due to time constraints on the day they can not be judged.
        
If you want to advertise or sell merch at the Everything Chrysler Day you can sign up for the 'Drifter' package which is just $50 for a business card size advertisement in the show booklet and get some of your merch in the show promotion bag.
 
Or you can sign up for the 'Pacer' package which gets you a trade display, bigger advertisement in the booklet, merch in the show bag and mentions in the announcements throughout the day, for $180.
 
You can even go bigger if you want to so get in touch if you're interested!

02/03/2015 - VALE LEO GEOGHEGAN ( 1936-2015 )

It is with deep sadness and regret that we advise the passing of Leo Geoghegan on the 2nd March.

Leo was a much admired supporter of our club and its major events.

He first came to WA as our guest at the Chrysler Expo 2011, being his first trip west. Following that event, he made subsequent trips west to join in with our members and to make himself available.

Apart from his very successful open wheeler racing achievements, he was instrumental in the development, testing and racing of Pacer’s and Chargers for Chrysler Australia.

Leo was always willing to make himself available to talk to anyone about his experiences in a very relaxed and humorous manner. The information gained from these informal gatherings could never have been obtained other than from Leo himself.

As a result of our clubs contacts through Leo we have made many friends with other Chrysler enthusiasts right across Australia.

Our vice president Kylie Sewell flew over to see Leo last week and spent some special time with him. I know this would have been of comfort to Leo during this time.

Leo was engaged by Chrysler Australia to develop their racing programme during the early 1970s.He made valuable contributions to their aims given his knowledge and experience. All this was achieved on a very limited budget due to local content constraints. The result of all this was that they were able to present very impressive and competitive road cars and race cars. Some of that input and development is still being seen in cars that continue to race today.

Leo was the only race driver to have raced at Bathurst for the Big 3, again another significant achievement.

We will miss Leo and will always hold him in our hearts as an admired racing car driver and friend.

Our thoughts go out to his family and all the motor racing and Chrysler family right across Australia.

No doubt he will be sharing much with his brother Ian (Pete) in the big race track somewhere out there.

26/02/2014 - Mopar Wedding

(From Kim Belcastro)I was in Sydney over the weekend for my brother's wedding.Late last year I had been in contact with Andrew Pana from the Regals Mopar Car Club in Sydney to see if he would be interested in helping source a couple of Chrysler`s to use as wedding cars.He volunteered the services of his 1973 383cu in  Plymouth Duster Hardtop and also George`s 1968 383cu in Dodge Dart GTS Hardtop.The Groom and my family were picked up from our apartment at Sydney Towers and taken to Porteno Restaurant in Surrey Hills where the ceremony and lunch were held.Day went off without a hitch (other than the groom and bride getting hitched!).Was rather fitting that my brother was taken to the ceremony in a Mopar as his first ride in a car was in a Mopar (as was mine and my sisters).Also got Dad reminiscing a bit about the Valiant`s and Dodge trucks he had during the 60`s and 70`s !I have attached a couple of photos from the day, thought it may make for an interesting story and also demonstrate the camaraderie that exists between owners of classic cars.Both George and Andrew had never met me or my family prior to the day, in fact Andrew volunteered his services about thirty minutes after I posted the request for a wedding car on the Hemi6Pack.com forum.Great guys and a great day !

19/10/2013 - Busselton Motorfest (Non-club event)

The Busselton MotorFest was first inspired by the long held dream of Ray Dowell of the Busselton Football Club. Ray had no problem finding local "motorheads" to help make the dream of having a local motor show come true! In 2006 the first event attracted about 150 exhibits, and by last years show this was up to more than 340 exhibits. The event continues to be specifically a FAMILY orientated outing that gives everyone the opportunity to show / view a wide range of motor types... be it stationary motors from a past era, vintage and modern vehicles, tractors, bikes, speedway & drag racing beasts, streetcars, or just the pure show of muscle power... (Ford & Holden rivalry is alive and well!). Car Clubs from all over the state also make a significant presence.

16/02/2012 - Thankyou Charger Club of WA

To Ron, Kylie and all Charger Club of WA members,

We would like to acknowledge and thank all club members for their support of the Make a Wish Foundation on the Supercruise day. The foundation, through the generous support of organisations such as yours, allows kids who have dealt with some tough times in their lives to experience some of the more fantastic aspects of life. All recipients of wishes are grateful for the opportunity the support of community groups provides.

On a personal note we would like to thank John for allowing Caidee and I the honour of cruising at the head of the procession, and for his fantastic engagement and patience with Caidee. Ever since that day I think we have a budding Charger owner in our midst! She has not stopped talking about it since (and wants to wear her t-shirt everyday).

Once again thankyou to all we talked to on the day and for your support of the fantastic Make a Wish Foundation.

Dale and Marnie Butler

Chrysler, which is 80.1 percent owned by Cerberus, already has a joint venture with GM making a hybrid gas-electric powertrain, and has discussed a full merger or acquisition with GM, said the person, who did not want to be identified because the talks have not been made public.

-----

The negotiations between 100-year-old GM and 83-year-old Chrysler began more than a month ago. The Times said its sources pegged the chances of a merger being completed at "50-50."

The new 2008 Dodge Challenger is has been officially realised. With a starting price tag of just over $40,000 USD it makes for a reasonably priced muscle car. Putting out 425 HP and 420 LB.-FT of torque, and looks to boot, there is no doubt that this is some serious muscle.

24/01/2008 - Revised Dodge Viper - the 2008 SRT10 ACR

Whats special about it? With its optional "Hard Core" package, it's pretty easy to figure out the idea behind the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR. This is one for the serious knuckle-draggers, the guys who somehow feel like a standard Viper with its 600-horsepower V10 engine just isn't extreme enough. They want more, although in this case they actually get less, as the ACR is essentially a lightweight, track-ready version of the standard car.

40 pounds of weight have been removed from the car, there is less deadening, no stereo, and in the place of the stereo a lap timer has been inserted. The drivetrain remains untouche and still runs the standard 600HP V10 motor. It comes with adjustable suspension, new front anti-roll bar, better brakes and an adjustable carbon fibre rear spoiler. There is a new variable-geometry front aero splitter that increases down force, with an optional extra centre piece that can be fitted for track only days that will increase the down force by one third.

22/01/2008 - First Production 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8® Sells

The first production of the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8® Sold for $400,000. The proceeds from the auction are going to a charity.

The limited-edition 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 features a 6.1-liter HEMI® V-8 engine, HEMI Orange paint, carbon-fiber-like hood stripes and a chrome fuel filler cap. Only 6,400 Challenger SRT8 vehicles will be produced for sale in the United States for 2008; more than 4,300 orders placed the first day the all-new Dodge Challenger SRT8 went on sale.

The winning bid was placed by Craig Jackson, Chairman/CEO of the Barrett-Jackson Auction Company, who bought the first production Challenger without even seeing it. On display at the auction was the Challenger concept, which was introduced two years ago and still drew large crowds at the auction all weekend. Dodge is ecstatic that the sale of the first production 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 to roll of the assembly line raised $400,000 for such a worthy cause," said Mike Accavitti, Director — Dodge Brand and SRT Global Marketing, Chrysler LLC. "The introduction of an all-new, modern Dodge Challenger has generated a lot of excitement, and the enthusiasm for the new car was evident on the auction block."

22/01/2008 - STOLEN: 1973 Plymouth Cuda 440 (Sydney)

I have just had my beautiful 440 Cuda stolen from Sydney and wanted to get the word out to all MOPAR lovers that these pricks have stolen my car so they can't sell it to anyone. The VIN/Engine number is, in case someone comes trying to flog parts etc... I personally imported her from Phoenix AZ so as you can imagine I am completely heartbroken. The car was stolen from Sydney on or about 14 Jan 08 and is an original Cuda.

BS23L48 271031 Vin number, the car was running a NOM 440 which had the VIN 271031 stamped on the top of the block. All sheet metal and window sticker, door tag were still on the car so there's a chance that these numbers may come up as parts as well. Some parts are stamped with the same VIN number, the doors have the VIN tags on them as well. Up on top of the dash (like new cars) there is also the VIN number under the glass.

Some less than intelligent car thieves may not know this and just remove the fender tag from under the hood and leave the rest... Don't know how they would steal it as a whole. More likely that they will strip it and try to sell as parts or worse still just rip the 440 outta it to use and destroy the rest. It's something that is of very little value to anyone except the rightful owner.

If anyone knows anything or hears of anything, please have them email me direct on dd8088@gmail.com or phone me on 0422 255 930.

Thanks for your help.

29/05/2007 - Tulsa's Buried Plymouth Belvedere - UPDATE

On Friday, June 15, 2007 at 12:00noon (US time), Tulsa`s Buried Plymouth Belvedere will finally be unearthed! It will be 50 years to the day that the big Plymouth was buried.

"On June 15, 1957, a new gold and white 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Sport Coupe was buried in a time capsule in downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma. The time capsule was part of Golden Jubilee Week: Tulsa's celebration of Oklahoma's semi-centennial. The car is buried under the sidewalk in front of the Tulsa County Courthouse, approximately 100 feet north of the intersection of Sixth Street and Denver Avenue"

"As part of the "Tulsarama!" festivities, citizens of Tulsa were asked to guess what the population of Tulsa would be in the year 2007. The guesses were then recorded on microfilm and sealed in a steel container buried with the car. When the car and artifacts are excavated, the person whose guess is closest to Tulsa's 2007 population is to be awarded the Belvedere."

09/05/2007 - Another great day at Collie

Yet again, another great day at Collie just passed last weekend. There was a large turnout of cars estimated to be around 25 or 30 which made for a wide variety of metal at the track. New and old alike we all had fun - whether it be with twin turbos or with a lot of cubic inches.

Whilst heading down to Collie the rain was a little discouraging but overall the day was not too wet, often with areas drying up between light sprinkles of rain. A dry line appeared on the track after a period of time but that didn't stop a lot of us having traction issues. On the way back to Perth there was a fair bit more rain so really we were quite lucky to have a mostly dry day at the track.

Photos from the day (thanks to Keegan Rowe) can be seen on the Event Pictures page. Trevor Hedge also has some photos posted up on his website here.

25/04/2007 - 2007 Chrysler Sebring

Inspired by the 2003 Chrysler Airflite concept vehicle that was revealed at the Geneva motor show, the all-new Chrysler Sebring’s elegant lines evoke the exterior styling features of the Chrysler vehicle, bringing the Chrysler brand’s expressive design attributes to the mid-size segment.

The Chrysler Sebring includes a host of new technology and features, ranging from a cutting-edge information, entertainment and communication navigation audio system to a heated/cooled front cupholder for keeping hot beverages hot and cool beverages cool. A long list of safety systems includes an Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), advanced multi-stage front air bags, side-curtain airbags and front-seat-mounted side airbags.

Three engine options will power the 2007 Chrysler Sebring that will be sold in Australia: the new standard 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine (dubbed the I-4 World Engine), a highly efficient 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine, and at a later stage a 2.7-litre V6 petrol engine. Fuel economy is a high-priority for many of today’s car buyers, and the 2007 Chrysler Sebring rivals the best in the mid-size car segment. Sebring's 2.4-litre engine with dual variable valve timing is mated to a four-speed automatic transaxle and delivers 125 kW and 220 Nm, impressive fuel efficiency as well as smooth, quiet operation.

The available 2.7-litre V6 engine is coupled with a new six-speed automatic transaxle that comes standard with Auto Stick. The combination delivers excellent performance and fuel efficiency, as well as smooth quiet operation.
A state-of-the-art 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission will also be offered on the Chrysler Sebring. The diesel engine will deliver excellent performance and fuel economy, with an estimated 103 kW of power and 310 Nm of torque.

The new Chrysler Sebring is slated for a May 2007-onwards release.

14/04/2007 - Mopars racing at Wanneroo Raceway

Last weekend on the 8th of April (Easter Sunday) the club was invited to attend a track day by the Falcon GT Club of WA at Wanneroo Raceway (Barbagallo). 6 club members and cars turned up to wave the Mopar flag against 32 other cars of various brands, mostly Fords.

The way started off rather doubtful with it raining quite heavily up until about 11am. By the time we lined up to get on to the track it was almost dry, but that didn't stop Jake Rebrovic's VH Charger (with a supercharged 360 V8) from digging up the dirt (see pic).

The best time of the day (short track) was Andy Thompson in his Triumph with a 59 second time.
