Attend the DIY Street Fair in Ferndale

At Suburban Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Troy, we take great pride in the innovative autos we offer.

The annual DIY Street Fair in Ferndale, happening September 13 through 15 on E. Troy Street, also honors forward thinking.

The event serves as a celebration and a showcase of local artists, crafters, musicians, restaurants, brewers, businesses, organizations, and others with a DIY ethic for work and life. Among the festivities schedule are:

  • Live music by regional original bands on three stages
  • The UHF Record Shop, featuring self-produced and/or self-released music from the performing acts
  • A beer garden with craft beers brewed in the state
  • Local restaurants and food trucks
  • A marketplace with original works by local artists, crafters and businesses
  • Kids Zone featuring hands-on DIY projects, educational demonstrations, entertainment for kids of all ages

The street fair also has its own charity run. The DIY 5k Art on the Run benefits the Ferndale Public Schools art programs and involves optional stops along the way to create community masterpieces. There will be five art canvases set up along the route at which you can add your own artistic vision. The works of art will be mounted and displayed after at the Ferndale Public Library. The run starts at 9 a.m. for the 5k and 9:15 a.m. for a 1-mile fun run on Sept. 14 at Woodward Avenue Brewers, 2646 Woodward Ave.

After attending the DIY Street Fair in Ferndale, please stop by Suburban Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Troy to learn more about the innovation included in the vehicles we sell. For example, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee offers three innovative 4-by-4 systems:

  • Active Drive I 4-by-4 system with brake traction control for easy-to-use, all-weather capability

The all-new Jeep also features industry-first rear-axle disconnect feature that engages 4-by-4 only when necessary to greatly improve fuel efficiency.

2013 Customized Chrysler Draw Awards Illustrate the Quality of Mopar Parts

Chrysler Mopar

Highlights from the 2013 customized draw awards held by Chrysler illustrate that Mopar parts and accessories, which we at Suburban Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Troy use, are top-notch. The awards, begun in July, spotlight classic, or modern-day cars customized and restored by their owners with Mopar parts in exceptional ways.

Award Highlights

Chrysler’s Customized and Performance Vehicle Program recently selected “Top Eliminator” winners. Miles Watsko took the first prize with his 1964 Plymouth Savoy. His restored car won the first “Top Eliminator” award at the “Mopars in the Park” event July 9 in Farmington, Minn.

The judging panel selected Watsko based on criteria that relate to the program’s goal to modify or preserve Mopar vehicles. The criteria include Mopar content and overall appearance of a vehicle, according to a recent Chrysler post. Watsko’s Savoy is a classic muscle car that features the 426 HEMI race engine. Interestingly, the 1964 Savoy was the first car that Mopar gave that engine type.

Additional winners’ selections occur at Carlisle Chrysler Nationals, the Indianapolis NHRA US Nationals, and online; the total number of award recipients, counting Watsko, is four.
