Shine 'em up and show 'em off...
We are a group of MOPAR enthusiasts who love to show our cars and support local causes. Whether you have a stock, modified or custom setup, you're part of our AMMO family and what better way to show some MOPAR love then going to a car show! Throughout the year there are some big events we like to attend as a club to showcase our rides. For example, Chrysler Power Classic, Summit Racing All Mopar Show, Mopars at the Red Barns Show, LX & Beyond Nationals and the Mario Knapp Memorial Car Show are just a few key events that we have a huge club turnout for. There are also several other smaller car shows held locally on the weekends that are a great segway into the car show scene. Small or large show its all about showing off that MOPAR and supporting some great causes! See below for information on some of the larger car shows that AMMO brings the whole club out for.
For weekly regional car shows, please join our AMMO Facebook page as we have a very active community and many local car shows are often posted. Find out which shows other AMMO members are attending and cruise out to the shows with your MOPAR to join the fun.

Club Plan: This is the BIG one! The largest Modern Mopar event in the entire Midwest right here in our own backyard!

As Modern Mopars roll in from all over the country, AMMO represents big time as the local Mopar club and we come out in force to support this event. Register EARLY for discounted prices. Even if you don't plan to have your car judged in the Car Show, purchase the Car Show admission and you can opt to be a Non-Judged vehicle but still park with all of the AMMO crew. Remember, Car Show registration gets you, your car and a passenger in the event, so its a much better deal than parking out in the general public lot and paying spectator admission for each person. AMMO will have it's own section inside of the event for all members to park together. Details to follow.
AMMO @ the 4th Annual Mario Knapp Memorial Car Show presented by Feazel
When: Saturday, September 23, 2017 10:00am - 4:00pm
Where: Quaker Steak & Lube, 8500 Lyra Dr, Columbus, OH 43240
Info: This is the BIG one you don't want to miss! Dedicated to AMMO club member Mario Knapp who we lost in 2013, this annual car show is an event to honor our lost friend and carry on his passion for cars. 100% of proceeds from the fundraiser benefit a local 501c3 charity and a contribution is made to the 529 College Savings Accounts that were setup for Mario's three boys.
Our dear friend Mario Knapp passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, October 30, 2013, at the young age of only 27. He served in the U.S. Army and worked as a corrections officer with the rank of Sergeant. Mario was a wonderful son, grandson, brother, nephew and devoted friend to many. Most of all, a loving husband and father, his three young boys meant the world to him. Mario had a great passion for cars and he loved to spend his spare time working on his car, as well as helping other fellow car club members with their cars. He also enjoyed attending car cruises and car shows at every chance that he could. Simply put, Mario was the definition of a car enthusiast.
Goodie bags, dash plaques, t-shirts, door prizes, raffles, 50/50, live auction, music, food from Quaker Steak & Lube, Kidz Zone with free face painting and much more! Car Show registration is $15, but bring your wallet because there is always a ton of awesome items up for grabs in our raffle and auction thanks to all of our generous donors and sponsors. And we always have an incredible trophy collection like you've never seen before! Come on out for a fun-filled family-friendly day and enjoy all of the festivities while we raise money for a great cause in honor of a great man.
Club Plan: The turnout from fellow AMMO club members as well as hundreds of cars from around the region always make this an event you don't want to miss. Since this event started as a smaller show, largely attended by fellow AMMO members who came together to honor Mario, it has grown into an enormous event that we look forward to every year. It just goes to show what this AMMO family is all about - we turnout big time for this one. We will be looking for volunteers from AMMO to help with the festivities! Please contact Kyle Fischer if you are interested in helping out! Details to follow.
