About the club
In 1990, a group of Chrysler car enthusiasts in the Albury (NSW) and Wodonga (VIC) area joined together to form the Albury Wodonga Chrysler Car Club inc. The AWCC is a social club dedicated to Chrysler produced vehicles of Australia and American design of any era. Soon after, we held our inaugural car show, "Chryslers on the Murray".
A one day Show 'n' Shine with 60 Chrysler vehicles in attendance on the bank of the Murray River at Hovell Tree Reserve in Albury, NSW. In the following years the Show "n" Shine was expanded to a two day event and included a number of drives or "Runs" to the local tourist attractions and wineries. A swap meet was added to the show in 1995 and has been successful in attracting specialist Chrysler vendors from across Australia.
Entrants and enthusiasts alike now travel to Albury in the hope of finding that elusive part. "Chryslers on the Murray" has grown continually over the last 15 years by being professionally run, even though all work is carried out by volunteers.
Costs are kept to a minimal amount through sponsorship and subsidies from the Albury Wodonga Chrysler Club. In 2008 over 550 entrants made the trek to the Albury Wodonga area to celebrate the chrysler breed, making it the largest Chrysler show in the southern hemisphere. A mighty effort considering our club is the smallest Chrysler Club in Australia.
Albury Wodonga is located on the Victorian/NSW border, and is approx 600kms south of Sydney, NSW and 300 kms north of Melbourne, Victoria. The Murray River is Australia's longest river.
