If there’s at least an inkling of gearhead or historian inside you, there are few better ways to spend a Saturday than at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum come June 6.

Last year, a record-setting 2500+ people and 430 vehicles were on-hand at the annual Chrysler Employee Motorsports Association’s Charity Car Show.

“It’s a fun, family event, and the chance to show kids all the old cars,” said CEMA Car Show Coordinator Lori Emerling, Harmonization Project Manager in Materials Engineering. “The CEMA Charity Car Show usually attracts a lot of first-time visitors as well as many people who will show their car for the first time at the show.”

As of mid-May, owners and their cars from Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Ontario and Pennsylvania, as well as Michigan, were among the preregistrations. If you want to show your ride, you still have time to preregister and save $5. Preregistration deadline is May 30. See the CEMA site for show details.

If you just want to attend, the range of Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Plymouth – and even vehicles from other OEMs – is enough reason. But we’ll give you a few more, just in case you’re still on the fence.

  1. Entry to the car show is free, and there are opportunities to do your bit to help Leader Dogs for the Blind, which is the benefactor of this charity car show.
  2. The Walter P. Chrysler Museum, closed since December 2012, except for private events, will again be open and free admission for the public. The opening of the Chrysler Museum during the CEMA Show is a rare opportunity to walk through history.
  3. The opportunity to purchase – or win – a limited edition 2015 CEMA Show poster, created by our Design Office. This is the first time a commemorative poster has been created for the show.
  4. Chance to see a 1963 Chrysler Turbine car, which will be among the featured vehicle displays.
  5. Jet Age of Automotive Design: This year’s theme, and the opportunity to hear from Steve Pasteiner on Jet Age Design. Pasteiner is president of Advanced Automotive Technologies. Pasteiner’s talk starts at 11:30 a.m. in the theater.
  6. Special recognition of the 60th anniversary of the Chrysler 300 introduction
  7. What better opportunity to share stories with fellow car enthusiasts?
  8. You are likely to run into a company designer, engineer and other company official. (After all, many of our employees are gearheads just like you.)
  9. Did we say you’ll have the opportunity to see 400+ cars of all nearly all makes/models, and talk with their owners?
