Brochures from the 2011 Mopar Car Show in Balboa Park - photos by Art Jacobs.
"I attended the 25th Anniversary Southern California Chrysler Performance West Spring Fling Mopar Event. ... It's one of the largest Mopar car shows in the West and they have every year in Van Nuys. If your not familiar with Mopar, it's a group of car enthusiast for the preservation, driving and showing of Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth cars. This year I took my camera and was able to take a few photos. The Museum is welcome to use them on their site.
