It’s summertime in North America, so that means it’s car season. Especially if you live around the Metro Detroit area. It seems every weekend, there is some kind of car event to attract every type of car enthusiast. This past weekend, we attended the Mainstreet Memories event in Port Huron, Michigan.

Hosted at the southern tip of Lake Huron about 65 miles northeast of Detroit, the event was held along the beautiful St. Clair River. The Mainstreet Memories event has become one of the better car events of the season in the Metro Detroit area. It brought all different types of vehicles from motorcycles to monster trucks and muscle cars to hot rods.

Over 950 vehicles participated in the event and about 10,000 spectators. That includes some amazing Mopars.

We saw some wonderful muscle cars, both classic and modern at the event. Coronets, Road Runners, Challengers, Chargers, GTXs, Darts, and Belvideres, were just some of the nameplates easily recognized by Mopar fans. Other less popular Mopars from the past were also present, a Volare Wagon, a St. Regis Michigan State Police car, a Dodge Mirada, and even an awesome Plymouth Savoy gasser.

Several pickups were on display, like a Lil’ Red Express (the fastest production vehicle in the U.S. in 1978 and 1979), a Ram 1500 Indy Edition (the official truck of the 1996 Indianapolis 500), and a Ram 1500 TRX (the current fastest production truck on the market).

Also present were several EEK (Every Extended K-Car) vehicles. These vehicles included a couple of Dodge Daytonas and an amazing pristine Chrysler Fifth Avenue.

There were several extended Mopar family vehicles as well. Several AMC Javelins, an awesome AMC Eagle, a really cool AMC Gremlin X, and a couple of Willy’s products.

A couple of cars that really stood out were some of the HEMI cars on display. There was an absolutely gorgeous 1968 Plymouth HEMI GTX convertible as well as a handsome 1970 Dodge Challenger HEMI R/T. But our favorite vehicle at the event was a beautiful black 1967 Plymouth Belvidere II with a Mopar 6.4-liter (392 cubic-inch) crate HEMI V8 under the hood.
