Welcome to the MoparWiki
The Mopar Wiki Site
The Mission
The MoparWiki has the goal of ultimately being the single best source for All Things Mopar. Makes, models, people, platforms, components, racing -- anything Mopar. This is to be accomplished by the collaboration with anyone wishing to improve a MoparWiki with facts or editing for style.


About MoparWiki
MoparWiki was created and is administered by Dave Schultz. The engine running the MoparWiki is the same engine used for the very popular [www.wikipedia.com Wikipedia]. It allows for any registered editor to start an appropriate article, and for other registered editors to collaborate on the improvement of it. We try to follow a uniform format for consistency. You can get to a Wiki of a specific topic by typing the topic in the search box -- or clicking on a link frond in another Wiki. There are links for a random page, recently updated, or help in the left sidebar. Please take a few moments to read further -- and to browse around. We hope you will assist us with collaborating on existing MoparWikis, from adding appropriate facts (and your reference source) or cleaning up the text and styling.

Big Daddy Don Garlits
Big Daddy

Donald Glenn Garlits (born January 14, 1932, Tampa, Florida) is considered the father of drag racing. He is known as "Big Daddy" to drag racing fans around the world. A pioneer, with the help of TC Lemmons, and after he lost a portion of his foot in a drag racing accident, he perfected the design rear-engine "top fuel" dragster (notable because it put the most explosive parts of the dragster behind the driver) and was an early endorser of a full-body, fire-resistant suit. In 1964, he became the first drag racer to officially surpass 200 miles per hour; he has broken a number of other speed records, surpassing 270 miles per hour in 1986.

Drag Racing was a California based sport. Don Garlits being from Florida was the outsider who came in and beat them at their own game. He was sometimes referred to as the Floridian, such was his uniqueness.

Garlits was the first driver to win three National Hot Rod Association national titles and three world championships, the last coming at the age of 54.

Garlits won the first NHRA Drag race he entered with the first racecar he built. It was 1955, and the NHRA Safety Safari had come to Lake City, Fla. A short three years later, the garage and body shop owner was racing professionally with the first of 34 race cars he would later tag Swamp Rat. He didn't stop until 1992, when eye trouble, the result of deceleration G forces of nearly 7 G’s, forced him from the seat at age 60. In the four-decade interim, Garlits took on all comers on any racetrack in the country and sometimes abroad. Driving chassis he fabricated that were powered by engines he built, Garlits won 144 major open events and 17 national championships in the sport's three major hot rod associations. Read More

User Page Example
An example of a "Users Page" would be Bk's
BK

Each Registered User gets his own User Page that he can update with his information, so that visitors to the site get an idea of who the people collaborating on the MoparWiki are. This Page can also be used as your personal web page, which you can link in your signature on forums, or included on your personal business cards (500 at Vista Print for $10).

But most importantly, a User Page is a place where you can practice and perfect your editing skills before taking on major changes of the creation of a wiki. MoparWiki encourages you to become a registered member, to spend a little time playing around with creating your personal User Page, and then to jump in and collaborate on the Wiki pages needing improvement.

Your Help is Requested
Collaborate
To collaborate is for many people to work together to create a finished product. It is not necessary for any one person to complete and entire MoparWiki on his own, nor is it necessary for a MoparWiki to be completed in one sitting. It works best when people improve the MoparWiki one section of the wiki at a time.
Edit
Editing for grammar and style is just as important as giving the facts and stating references. People who know nothing of Mopars can still help us out if they have a better command of the English language than many of those who are improving the MoparWikis. If you stumble across a MoparWiki with typos, misspellings, and grammatically incorrect -- please help out with a quick edit to correct.
SysOp
We are looking for a volunteer with Administrator and programmer experience to help out with the the administration of the MoparWiki web site.
Editing Supervisors
We have an immediate need for a expert Wordsmith to spend a couple of hours a week reviewing pages for corrections, reference citations, and reversing any vandalism.
