Chrysler Chelsea Proving Grounds 50th Anniversary event with CJ
2004-06-19
On Saturday, June 19, 2004, the Prowler owners were invited to participate in the Chrysler Chelsea Proving Grounds 50th Anniversary event. The Prowlers, with the Vipers and PT Cruisers, paraded through the town of Chelsea to the Proving Grounds facility. We were the featured parking in front of the facility during the Open House ceremonies. There was off-road driving, at-speed driving on the track and other fun activities. We made parade laps (at a controlled speed) around the 4-mile track and then they let us run laps at whatever speed we could!!! It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and it was awesome!!!
