Chrysler Owners Group: Wild Thing 13 Car Show

On the last weekend of September, over 50 Chrysler vehicles came together on the annual Wild Thing Car Show located on the Wildwood Boardwalk in New Jersey. Both my father and I have been coming to this event since it's inception 13 years ago because we can't go a year without going.  Owners came as far north as Canada and as far west as Iowa. It always amaze me what people will go through to be a part of an event.  What originally started out as Chrysler PT Cruiser car show event has evolved into an event with a plethora of cars from all different Chrysler/Mopar products.  Many of the same faces still come out and spent time with fellow owners to embrace their extended car family and friends. It is for this reason that many of these owners still make the effort that they once did in the past; ultimately for each other.  As the years go by, we embrace the time we all have with one another and continue to strive to build that community.  Mark Ciliano has been the heart of this event and continues to see that the event bring an exciting turnout.  I always give him praise for putting his utmost efforts and seeing that there will always be another great event to look forward to next year.  The town of Wildwood, New Jersey has always been exceptional with having open arms in order to help run the event smoothly.   The event will always be something special to the owners, not many other car owners can say that they had their car on the Wildwood boardwalk along with all these other stunning cars. I remember way back in the beginning years of this event that there used to be a cruise throughout the city of Wildwood.  It was one of the coolest things to do with your family especially like me with my father.  The whole city was there to watch the spectacle of all these cars lined up and cruising through the streets.  Locals and tourists were cheering and clapping, drivers were waving, honking horns, and flashing their lights. This cruise was coordinated with the help of the town police and officials. This is a memory that I will always have of the Wild Thing event.  I hope one day that we might be able to cruise like we once did. I look forward to continuing to enjoy this event next year and invite you to come on out.  Take a look at the pictures! Don't forget to comment below!

  • Great images…especially the copper and black number (she’s mine!!!!) I like your imagery, and that you didn’t just opt out for the traditional angles to shoot from. These are just great and the post-prod work is a nice touch. You may have been here every year since the beginning, but this was my first year and I’ve been missing out. I am so glad I came. Mark and his team put on a great event. I look forward to next year (it’s already on my calendar).

    • Thanks so much Barbara. I love your PT:) I look forward to seeing you out more often. Hope had a great time and look to catch some other events in the area!
