The club’s first Come Mod Your Car Day was so well received and talked about, West Coast Challengers held a second “Come Mod Your Car Day,” and it was an even greater success than the first. Club members were again invited to bring their cars, their light modifications and smile for a fun day of modifying our Dodge Challengers in a park setting.

In what will undoubtedly be the second of many more Come Mod Your Car Days having a revolving location to bring the event close to home at least once a year to everyone, the club members met up this time at Yorba Regional Park on the border of Anaheim and Yorba Linda, CA.

Once again, club member Julie, took tools in hand to modify her own Black SRT Challenger by installing a catch can. Leo also installed a catch can on his Silver SE Challenger.

Notwithstanding the number of Dodge Challengers and new and prospective club members that showed up for today’s event, the surprise came when Bill appeared on scene driving a 2010 Hemi Orange SRT. Purchased last week, Bill had kept the car secret to surprise us all — and that he did. While we all saw the Hemi Orange Challenger rolling into the parking lot, none of us knew it was Bill driving as we were fully expecting him to be coming with his Deep Water Blue 2011 Inaugural Edition 392 Challenger. The 6.1L Hemi Orange SRT will be Bill’s race car of which he has already mapped out the engine build. Congrats to Bill on the new race car!

Not long after Bill had arrived at the park, new club member John rolled in with his new Tungsten Gray R/T.

And right behind John, new club member Kathy rolled in with her new Tungsten Gray SE with friend Robert riding shotgun.

And then right behind Kathy and Robert, Steve with his wife Maggie rolled in with their new Bright White R/T Classic.

Just when we were thinking of what a great turn out we were having, the husband and wife team of Adrian and Cindy showed up in a set of his and hers Dodge Challengers. A Torred SRT for Adrian and a Bright White R/T for Cindy — a Mopar family to be sure.

At one point in the festivities, a young crow came to play. It swooped down and landed on Julie’s open trunk. It seemed at home with all of us standing around snapping pictures of it — us being just a curious as he was. Once shoo’d off of Julie’s trunk and it not wanting to leave us (who can blame him) it flew over and landed on Julio’s roof. Again, shoo’d off, it flew over and landed on Larry’s roof. Finally, after being shoo’d off again, it took to a nearby tree where it stayed for a few hours just watching us all.

After a few hours of modding our cars, the group caravanned over a club favorite restaurant, Blake’s Place, in Anaheim, CA, for some great BBQ.

The club’s second “Come Mod Your Day” turned out to be an even greater success than the first with about 14 Challengers showing up this time, and the club members are already eager to do another one soon.
