I live in the “Golden State”, better known as California. While I happen to reside midway between Sacramento and San Francisco, the Golden State Mopars, extend the length of the state.
Who are the Golden State Mopars? Simply put…they are a great group of men and women, who own Mopars and are part of a car club. If you’ve ever seen this on your door or windshield, or maybe even been handed one it means, “you’ve been carded”.
Most of the group hangs out on Facebook. If you’d like to connect to the group, just click the GSM group page.
This was taken from their Facebook “About” section:
Bringing Mopar Enthusiasts Together, Turning Friends Into Family…
Golden State Mopars is a car club for you. We love Challengers, Chargers, 300’s, Magnums, Vipers, old school Mopar Muscle, Trucks, Darts and anything SRT. Stock or highly modified, we like them all… We do cruises, meets, mod days, BBQs and other family friendly events. All we ask is that you are respectful and participate.
Facebook limits the invites we can send out to club members, so we can’t send invitations to everyone. However, ALL club members are welcome to any event hosted by Golden State Mopars. Our events are fun, relaxed and family friendly, come have fun and meet new friends.
I’m not a car person and I’m the first to admit it. I’m the woman at a car show that walks past a car, says, “nice” and moves on. My husband on the other hand, will get down on his hands and needs to check out the undercarriage, has to see the motor and might engage the owner in a conversation about the car. Oh boy, when that happens, my eyes roll and look for someplace to buy a drink. LOL
That being said, this car club has a lot of “meet-ups”. If you’re available, you attend the events you’d like to go to; however, it’s not required. While Mopar cars are the focus of the group and they are what brings everyone together initially, it can definitely be extended to a car family and support system.
We help each other with car issue recommendations (well, I don’t on those; you really don’t want me to either; trust me). We celebrate engagements, births of the next generation of Mopar afficiondos, and well as the times that life presents challenges that may be a bit harder to handle. We get together for car shows, BBQs and pool parties.
All in all, it’s a great car club. Whether you have a Mopar daily driver, show car, or a “mom” (or “dad”) car, we’d be happy to have you!
