What does MOPAR stand for?

I have heard a lot of different answers to this question. Anyone know for sure? What about SRT and R/T?

SRT = Street Racing Technology

R/T = Road & Track

MOPAR = Not Sure?

Correct, except the "and" in SRT; what did people "say" mopar stood for; Mostle Old People And Rednecks was one, but we said( and I had custom graphic made for rear window on my 09) Most Over Powered And Respected.
