KINGMAN – Classic and modern Mopar muscle car owners will stop at Martin Swanty Chrysler Dodge dealership around 1:30 p.m. Thursday for lunch on their way to Las Vegas in their 13th annual cruise from Avondale.

The Mopar owners are a laidback group with no speeding allowed. They’ll save that for the track in Las Vegas.

Martin Swanty, at 2640 E. Andy Devine Ave., will clear an area for the beautiful machines to park, and the public is welcome to come by and check them out.

Floyd’s Barbeque will be on site selling lunch items, and Martin Swanty will have discounts and giveaways.

Cody Swanty said he’s excited to have the group stop by his dealership.

“This is a great event that gets better every year,” he said. “We really are lucky to have this enthusiastic group share these awesome machines with us here.”

After the car engines have cooled down, the owners will fire them back up and continue on to Las Vegas for drag races, concerts and comradery.
