READERS RIDES: Australian hot rods, PART 2

Australia’s John Sutton sent junkyardlife photos from a recent All Chrysler car show in Adelaide. The 2010 All Chrysler Day celebrated its twentieth anniversary in Southern Australia and forty years of the Chrysler’s VG Valiant. Australian Mopar fans were treated to the Mega Cruise that included motoring by Chrysler Australia assembly plants. Chrysler created a loyal following with automotive enthusiasts in Australia with the debut of the Hemi-6 engine in 1970. The Hemi name, made famous in the U.S., carried huge marketing appeal. These inline six cylinder engines solidified Chrysler’s reputation from 1970 to 1981. Hundreds of great Mopars turned out for Australia’s largest Chrylsler car show. Enjoy the photos from down under.
