For a company that produces vehicles like the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, Jeep® Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, and the Ram 1500 TRX performance off-roader, you have probably realized there are a lot of diehard gearheads that work for Stellantis’ FCA US division. Yesterday, several of those employees brought their vehicles to the ground of the former Walter P. Chrysler Museum (now the headquarters for Alfa Romeo and Maserati North America) on the ground of the FCA US headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan for the company’s “Wild Wheels at Work” event.
The annual “Wild Wheels at Work” event, was promoted digitally last year as most of the FCA US employees were forced to work from home during the summer because of the ongoing pandemic regulations. However, now that the world is slowly getting back to usual, the event returned to an in-person car show. The event lets employees at the Auburn Hills Headquarters bring some of their passion-driven projects to work, to share with other petrolheads. Usually bringing out some very interesting vehicles and not all are Mopar-related vehicles or even cars for that fact.
There were a couple of hundred cars on display during the event, including vehicles from the Chrysler Historical Collection, concept vehicles, plenty of Mopar muscle cars, but there were also some interesting sports cars, exotics, pickups, offroaders, and a little bit of everything in between.
The event usually ends up being better than some of the car events we attend throughout the year. While there were some cars on hand that appear to be in better shape than they were when they left the assembly line, there were also some works-in-progress and even some daily drivers. Our favorite on display, was, of course, the 1967 Plymouth Belvidere II that the Mopar team put a Hellcat motor in (to showcase its Hellcrate HEMI V8s) that made its debut on Woodward in 2019.
Nevertheless, below you can see a few photos from the event of some of our favorite rides.
