Generation Next

Mopar's Generation Next




I just finished reading Rob Wolf's excellent editorial in the most current issue of Mopar Collector's Guide — called "Generation Next", an obvious play on Generation X.

In the editorial, Wolf points out that those of us who experienced the Muscle car Revolution first-hand — were the baby-boomers, and are now between 55-70. The Next'rs are in their mid-to-late thirties and their forties. They saw these cars in the childhood when they were still street driven and at shows. The editorial further points out that there is a crop of these Generation Next people working at dealerships, restoration shops, and racing — but they might be the end of the line, and the last to be able to even work on these cars.

That's very true in large part — but there are exceptions. My son Dallas is 24, has been racing Mopars since he was 16 (when he also obtained his NHRA Class IV License), is the crew Chief for all of the cars we race on a National Circuit — and yesterday won NMCA's 2011 "Crew Member of the Year" award at the Award's Dinner at PRI. The newest car he's ever raced is a 78 Aspen — and the oldest a 63 Plymouth. Steven, the Shop Rat at my shop is 19 and works part-time (25-hours a week) at my shop. He too is a Mopar man, and is capable of doing a engine/transmission swap on a mid-60s Mopar pretty quickly. He works for minimum wage because he is able to work on the old Mopars as much as swinging the mop. He has another part-time job where he pulls engines and transmissions on imports for twice what I pay him — but he rather work on old Mopars with us rather than working full time for his other employer. My youngest daughter is 13, and has been going to races with me since birth. She can tell you the year of any B-body and we're setting up my 10-second Vitamin C (63 Plymouth NSS car) for when she hits 16.

These kids are rare — but they do exist. They can exist in greater numbers if "Generation Next" will take the time to pass the heritage along. It takes a little psychology — and it takes getting to them when they're still young. In the case of Dallas, I took him to every car show and race I ever attended since he could be pushed in a stroller. He learned old Mopars before he could be corrupted but any kids with Imports. Same with motorcycles. I'm a Harley man, and much to his mother's chagrin, I bought him a large touring bike at 15 and took him riding with me until turning him on his own at 18. He learned from me, instead of on a crotch rocket by some punk with his hat on backwards and 300 body piercings. Steven's father is a die-hard Mopar man, and like Dallas, Steven never saw an import parked on the property. My youngest daughter was given her first go-cart at 5, and helped to assemble her 6-speed dune buggy at 8. She started driving on the property at 10.

My generation did a lot to create the Generation Next people, and now it is their duty to pass this along to their kids — and the earlier the better. Take them to car shows and tell them about why these cars are so special. Include them with the washing and working on your cars. Build a project together. I bought Dallas his first car at 15 — a 78 Magnum with a warmed over 360, as he had a special license to drive to and from school. He still has that car. We built his (now — but started as a 12-second) 10-second 72 Demon together when he was 15 — which we still have.

It doesn't have to end with the "Generation Next", if the Generation next will take the time to drag their kids away from the X-Box, and get them into the garage working on cars with them. A father is his son's biggest influence — and he only has a limited time to use that influence. My generation needs to do the same with our grandchildren.

You Can Create A Web Site Like

There is a new look and feel for the web sites of three cars currently running in Nostalgia Super Stock.

If you've not created a web site for your race team, you might considering doing so. While winning is the number one secret to attracting sponsors, a web site is number two, and a Media Kit is number three.

Many feel like it is beyond their pay grade to create a team web site — but it actually very simple, and requires no programming experience. Word Press is a free application that allows the would-be web master to have a blog on the front page, and a number of information pages linked in the NavBar. It will cost less than $10 a year to register your Domain name (IE:, and just a few bucks a month to host it on a web server. There are no other expenses. The secret is to find a web host that will automatically install Word Press for you.

I've created a step-by-step set of detailed instructions to create your own Word Press web site — from registering the name, to selecting the host server, to installing Word Press, to creating your custom "Look & Feel", to posting context, to Search Engine Optimization. If you've ever registered and posted to a forum — you're over-qualified to create your own web site. Click –> Word Press for Dummies

Premium Membership

  • PREMIUM MEMBER FORUM: Click the Premium Members Info link in the top NavBar for information on the ability to post to a Premium Member Forum. The purpose of this category is give people the opportunity to discuss topics with a political content to it. Most topics are fair game for discussion — no mater if the political slant is Left or Right. The opinions posted in the threads contained within this category are the sole opinion of the person posting, and not necessarily the opinion of the site's administrator, and the administrator/owner of the web site is not liable for the postings of another person. Posters are cautioned to use common sense in their postings. Copy and Pasting from another site is not allowed; as is the posting of a link to another board, blog, or News site. The person making the post agrees to Hold Harmless (paying all legal expenses) the site's administrator/owner — should their posting cause legal action against the administrator/owner. The bottom line is that while you may (in most cases) say whatever crazy stuff you like (as long as it doesn't violate copyright laws, is hateful to another, contain porn, or otherwise be illegal) — you personally may have to some day defend yourself and the site for your words. Think before you post!
  • PREMIUM MEMBER FORUM: Click the Premium Members Info link in the top NavBar for information on the ability to post to a Premium Member Forum.

Please don't copy and paste any articles from any of the Military Times — or from any other blog or News site. Likewise, do not post links to those sites either. Instead give a summary of the information you wish to offer — and then give a keyword list that others can Google to reference. I'm sorry that we have to do it this way — but aggressive ambulance chasing lawyer varmints have nothing better to do then sue blogs and forums.
  • PREMIUM MEMBER FORUM: Click the Premium Members Info link in the top NavBar for information on the ability to post to a Premium Member Forum. From Derringers to Howitzers — this forum has been establish for people interested in guns to discuss them, laws, news and anything else concerning guns.

This is an open invitation for all to visit the forums of their interest. Membership to post is free, quick, and free of all ulterior motives. You are not going to get spammed and your information will not be given out (short of a court order if you were to post something criminal). Our motive is simple to provide a one-stop place for any type of discussion — categorized in forums to find the conversations that interest you — and avoid conversations you wish to not be involved with.

Participate in the forums that interest you — and avoid the forums that do not. Any board that has a collection of forums to cover any type of conversation, is going to have forums that will interest you — and forums that will not interest you. For instance, the political forum is one of the more popular forums — but if your interest is drag racing and not politics — judge the board on the forums that interest you and not the forums that do not. Each individual forum stands on its own merit — and will benefit with increased participation.

Please honor us with your participation in the forums that interest you — and please pass this message along to your family and friends so that we might also be honored with their participation in the forums that interest them.
