Justin and his dad, Joe spent Friday evenings oogling over Mopar. cars at local cruise-in’s. Ever since then, the Kurtz family has been hooked on FCA US vehicles. From bearing witness to the sheer power of vehicles like the Dart, Barracuda, Challenger and Duster that made Justin’s head turn as a youngster to listening to dad’s stories about his own father’s love of Mopar station wagons and Imperials, Joe and Justin’s deep father-son bond has been nurtured by Mopar vehicles. And it was only a matter of time before they brought mom on board.

That day came in 2013 when it was time for Sheila, (AKA: Mom), to buy a new car. She fell in love with the Charger taillights and standout color chart. She took a 200-mile drive in her old minivan to pick up her new, and fairly rare, Charger. The only time she’s looked back is to see who she’s dusted.

Today, Joe and Sheila show their Mopar cars at community car shows, many of which support local churches and fire departments. Sheila, Joe and Justin attend some of the large car shows too, like Moparpalooza and the All-Chrysler Nationals at Carlisle. They even schedule vacations around some of the shows. In fact, just recently, all of the Kurtz’s placed in the Chrysler Nationals where Sheila and Joe also celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary.
