Mopars Shine at Georgia ‘Blast’
Mopars were definitely in the minority Apr. 7, at the 8th annual Blast from the Fast Past car show, but the few that made the trek to chilly Miller Park in Marietta, GA, were well received by the Pentastar faithful.
“We’re sorry we couldn’t deliver better weather, but we still had pretty good participation with some cars coming from as far way as Charlotte,” said Community Charity Concepts President Wayne Dodds, organizer of the event.
In addition to the show-and-shine for nearly 100 trophies and awards, the Blast featured live bands and a vendor area, with D and D Mobile Dyno Service also on hand for those brave enough to find out the true power numbers of their precious rides.

With an original 21,660 miles on the odometer, Jim Pollock’s 1971 Cuda is a fine example of classic, unrestored Mopar muscle. There’s a six-pack of carburetion atop the 440-cubic-incher hiding under the massive air cleaner and even a period-correct can of air in the trunk for inflating the space-saving spare. And dig that rear license plate!
We couldn’t find the owner, so it’s not clear whether this Dodge truck has a genuine Garlits pedigree behind it, but it sure was cool to see.
