The first annual “Mopars on the Murray” was an initiative of The Albury Wodonga Chrysler Club and held back in 1992. A one day Show ‘n’ Shine, the event saw 60 Chrysler vehicles in attendance on the banks of the Murray River at Hovell Tree Reserve in Albury, NSW.
In the following years the Show “n” Shine was expanded to a two day event and included a number of drives or “Runs” to the local tourist attractions and wineries. A swap meet was added to the show in 1995 and has been successful in attracting specialist Chrysler vendors from across Australia. Entrants and enthusiasts alike now travel to Albury in the hope of finding that elusive part.
“Chryslers on the Murray” has grown continually over the last 20 years by being professionally run, even though all work is carried out by volunteers. Costs are kept to a minimum through sponsorship from our major sponsors, and from support and grants from Local and State Government.
Over the last few years, in excess of 600 Chryslers have journeyed to the Albury-Wodonga area to celebrate the Chrysler breed, making COTM the largest Chrysler show in the southern hemisphere. A mighty effort and one of which we are proud, considering our club is one of the smallest Chrysler Clubs in Australia.
