After a long and successful running of our very popular “Come Mod Your Car Day” events, West Coast Challengers decided to add a new dimension to the event — a “Come Clean Your Car Day” where club members were invited to come out and wash and wax their Dodge Challengers, perform light modifications, help others, have lunch, and just hang out and chat with fellow club members. Club members were encouraged to bring their cars dirty and leave with them sparkling clean.

As with similar club functions, the “Come Clean Your Car Day” event is set in a revolving location to bring it close to everyone at one time or another so that one person isn’t always having to drive great distances to attend a club event. This first installment of the “Come Clean Your Car Day” was set to take place in Huntington Beach, California. The owners of the wildly popular Deli-Licious Deli agreed to open their business up to club members for the day.

Club members began showing up early just as an unseasonably and rare early morning wind storm began to blow through. Club hats were being blown off of the heads of club members and then being chased after as the hats quickly rolled away and down the driveway, everyone trying to foot stomp the hats as they blew by. It was pretty funny to watch, unless it happened to be your hat and you were doing the chasing of course. :) We were situated behind the business in a wide alley between several commercial buildings which acted as a corridor to amplify the winds causing harsh 30-35 mph wind gusts and dust devils behind the business. We all relocated to the front of the business and decided to have brunch together while waiting for the others to show and the winds to die down a bit.

Club member Steve showed up with his Edlebrock supercharger equipped R/T Challenger but gave us all a surprise when his wife and club member, Maggie, followed him into the parking lot driving a brand new Challenger Hellcat.

The winds finally left us as the day went on and club members were busy cleaning their cars and chatting with fellow members. As each car was cleaned it was parked in a line, one after another, causing many bystanders to stop and take pictures as the line of Challengers grew and grew.

The afternoon came quickly upon us and time came for club members to began saying their good-byes until next time, all eager to do it again soon!
