April 26 – aka 426 – has grown over the years to become a grassroots celebration of the 426 HEMI® engine.
The first engine with hemispherically-shaped combustion chambers, the 426 HEMI was officially unveiled in 1964 as a racing engine. It was later tamed and added to our production cars. It’s had a wealth of high-powered history on the road and on the track since then.

But the day wouldn't be complete without you: Our customers and supporters who have played a vital part in our past and recent success.
We'd like you...

Oh sure, a crazy storm blew through and stalled out the 2011 Woodward Dream Cruise for a bit, but then again, the whole deal's about power, passion and pouring your heart and soul into your beloved classic chariot.
Chrysler Group LLC came prepared for whatever with a mountain of metal and yeah, even a few tents, at its usual haunt at the corner of 13 Mile Road and Woodward Avenue in Royal Oak, just north of Detroit.
Our pals at JR Thompson had their video cameras rolling and sent us a a cinematic taste of Chrysler's corner of the cruise. We...

Jeeps with flames. Jeeps toting tents. One was encrusted with mud, while another looked like it earned an honorable discharge from doing service to Uncle Sam. Don't forget the new Jeep Wrangler JK8 pickup, courtesy of Mopar.
Those were some of the Jeeps that bivouaced on at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum on Wednesday for a special Jeep Cruise Night, celebrating the brand's 70th anniversary.
Above, are some video highlights. Below are two video profiles of a couple of gents who had two very different ideas of what to do with their Jeeps.
