Nostalgia Super Stock is an index-style foot brake only class for the year models, body styles, and engine combinations, which accurately represent those cars, which raced in the A/FX and Super Stock classes of the ’60s. Certain exceptions in the authenticity of these cars will be allowed. Among those exceptions, but not limited to, are factors concerning safety, equality in performance, availability and durability. Clasification will be based on a visual inspection and an E.T. range. No modifications, which alter the car from factory stock, are permitted unless they are specifically allowed in these rules. Sandbagging, excessive braking near the finish line or excessive mph for a given E.T. is subject to result in a disqualification. Nostalgia Super Stock is an all-run field, and will compete on an NHRA Sportsman type ladder. The class will qualify by elapsed time closest to index, be paired according to qualifying positions, and then advance to eliminations. All qualifiers in Nostalgia Super Stock must have a valid E.T. recorded to be placed into eliminator competition.

Class Criteria


The intent of the Stock Class is to simulate an original assembly line vehicle. It is recognized that most of the vehicles will have some changes and additions. To distinguish between Stock and Modified class entries, we adhere to the following guidelines.


1. A modification is considered any part, piece, or system of pieces, currently on the vehicle, that was not available from the factory’s assembly line at the time of the entry vehicle’s date of manufacture. This includes, but is not limited to: incorrect wheels, headers, chrome engine components, after-market gauges (including tacks), intake manifolds, non-factory carbs, lift kits, shackles, traction bars, competition shifters, deeply tinted glass, re-located exhaust systems, modern stereo/cassette/cd systems, and both interior and exterior changes that significantly alter the vehicle’s appearance. A Maximum of three (3) modifications will be allowed on “Stock” Class entries.


2014 Mega Mopar Action Winter Car Show Winners

Filed under Feature Story, Latest News




Thank you to all that participated! We had a lot of fun and hope you did too. We thank everyone for choosing our Voted Winners by voting on their favorite cars. We had a blast looking at all the submissions but it was almost impossible to choose the finalists out of so many fantastic cars for the Judged Winners! The hard work shows and we’re thankful to have had your beauties as a part of our first off-season Winter Car Show. We learned a lot this first go ’round, (and so did the Facebook App Developers!) and look forward to making some changes for the next one. Thank you for your patience.

We recognized quite a few cars from the event tarmac and now we’re dying to see all the others in-person gleaming in the bright sunlight too. Join us this season and let us know if you participated in the Winter Car Show! Thank you for sharing your photos with us, we know how much work and dedication it takes to turn a regular street car into a one-of-a-kind showstopper, please continue to share your projects on our page, we enjoy seeing all of them, from a fresh barn find to a Gold Class masterpiece.

Thank you for being a part of the Mega Mopar Action family. We look forward to seeing you this summer!



Because of some changes in the Facebook policy regarding voting in contests, we’ve added a class to include the Winners with the most Votes in addition to those chosen by our panel of judges.






*A quick note on voting – Facebook rules do not allow winners to be selected solely on the amount of votes, as noted in the Fine Print for the contest. Votes are taken into consideration when ranking submissions by select Mega Mopar Action staff and car show experts to determine finalists. The winners are then individually ranked in order by staff that did not participate in the administration of the contest, those tallies determine the winners.


AIRAID returns to the Manufacturers Series in 2014 as a sponsor at a select number of events to promote their new line of performance filters built specifically for racers.

“We’re pleased to continue our support of the Super Chevy, Fun Ford, and Mega Mopar Series,” said Trent McGee of AIRAID Filter Company. “The events have always been class-act, and we’re excited about having our brand associated with this growing series of events.”

Fun Ford Weekend, Super Chevy Show and Mega Mopar Action participants can expect Airaid goodie bag items such as, decals, pens and catalogs, as well see them lining the track fences in Sponsor Row.

“The Manufacturers Series is thrilled to have AIRAID as a sponsor again in 2014 and proud to have the opportunity to share relevant high-quality products with our participants and spectators, whether it’s AIRAID’s existing line of street performance Cold Air Intake systems or the new line of filters designed for the race track,” said Mfg. Series Director, Sara Griewing.

AIRAID recently unveiled the new purpose-built Track Day and Race Day Filters designed specifically for racing engines. Track Day Filters are designed for maximum flow while maintaining particulate protection. Track Day Filters feature the same quality construction as AIRAID’s regular air filters, including sturdy polyurethane casings, wire mesh construction, and layers of high flow cotton gauze. They are designed to provide restriction-free airflow while still maintaining adequate filtration. Track Days Filters are shipped dry but can be oiled by the end user if desired.

Race Day Filters are designed strictly to keep large debris out of the engine. Constructed with sturdy polyurethane casings and a durable wire mesh screen, they are built without any filtration media. Race Day Filters are intended for race day only and should only be used at on concrete or asphalt racing surfaces such as a drag strip or road course.

Both Track Day and Race Day Filters are manufactured in the USA and are backed by a 90-day warranty. These filters are not intended for street use and are not recommended for any off-the-shelf Cold Air Intake system that will be used in anything other than a controlled racing environment.

About Manufacturers Series
