Arrow West Coast Challengers Car Club 2012

2011 year in review for West Coast Challengers saw club membership rise 340% over last year, with October 2011 seeing an overall 30% increase over the previous month alone, a record for the club. The club also held many memorable events in 2011, such as the Butterflies by the Beach cruise to Pismo Beach and the club photo shoot inside of the Tustin Hangars, and the unforgettable Cruisin' to the Carrier, where club members were treated to a private tour aboard the USS Ronald Reagan, a Nimitz class, active duty, aircraft carrier. The club also attended over 100 local, community and charitable events this past year, including the two Spring classics, Spring Fest 6 and Spring Fling XXV.

We will post periodic updates of some of the events that West Coast Challengers will be attending in 2012 in this thread as well as providing pictures from events that we have just attended, for those who could not attend.

West Coast Challengers looks forward to seeing all of you Mopar enthusiasts out there in 2012, be it at events or on the road.

We're glad everyone had a good time with us on the Tour d'Orange 2012.

DAHBOOM caught the shot of the day of some of us stopped at a red light. Great shot!

TruFiber just released their annual video of the cars rolling out from the staging area. The main WCC pack can be seen rolling out at the 11:35 mark with more rolling out at the 13:20 mark.

Thank you all for coming out.

West Coast Challengers attended the 4th annual “Jeff’s Fun Run” (poker run) hosted by a fellow local club, Pickups Limited, Orange County Chapter. Days before the event, when rain was confirmed to be in the forecast, the club members, to their credit, all wanted to go anyway, with some even saying that it would be fun cruising around in the rain — and they were right!
Like last year, the Fun Run began at Ken Grody Ford in Buena Park. After checking in and staging, We were the first group to roll out and lead the participants to various automotive hot spots in and around Orange County. This years’ automotive hot spots on the route were Chopit Kustoms, C.W. Moss, Reid’s Rod Parts, Kugel Komponents, Lime Works and Moon Equipment Company, and finally ending at the famous Bob’s Big Boy in Downey, CA.
Now none of the members won the poker hands but three of them did hold an ace and the 50/50 drawing one of our members daughter was the official ticket drawer.

Mods: Cervini's Auto Design RAM AIR KIT,DiabloSport Catch Can,BT Hoses,SRT Hood Struts,Sequential turn signals,Drake Fuel Door Assy/Black,Magnaflow Exhaust,3GCustomz Half covers,BT custom door sills
What Next: MHT wheels nitrous Black 18x8.5 inthe front & 20x10.5 in the back. 392 Chin spoiler,

Great WCC turn out for the Rotary-CARE Car Show.

Even a 5-year-old can’t pass up taking a picture of the retro styling of the Dodge Challenger.
