STORY & PHOTOS CHRIS THOROGOOD

FOR the Chrysler-loving folk of Victoria, the annual Chryslers By The Bay serves as a great warm-up show for the big one that happens just a few weeks later in Albury-Wodonga – Chryslers On The Murray.

Held on the verdant lawns of Geelong Grammar School, the 21st Chryslers By The Bay saw over 260 Mopars on display – everything from vintage Plymouths, to classic 70s US and Aussie muscle cars, to late-model Jeeps and Dodges.

Hosted by the Bay City Chrysler Car Club, the event also included a swap meet, and all proceeds went to children’s charity Cottage By The Sea.

SM snapper Chris Thorogood was there to capture all the Mopar goodness for posterity; here are just some of his favourites from the event. s
