If the roar of open headers turns your head, if the aroma of burning rubber excites you, if old Mopars have become more of an addiction than a hobby then please read on. My name is Olivia Anne Crosby and I am launching this site, Dodge Girls Have More Fun, to keep you up to date on all things Mopar. From barn finds to event coverage, opinion pieces, FCA news, and more! The Dodge Girls will make sure you don’t miss a beat.
Some people may be surprised to see a young lady hosting a site dedicated to preserving this seemingly male dominated interest but as the hobby ages so do the people supporting it. Many may be shocked to realize the next generation of hot-rodders has a much larger base of women then we’ve previously seen. I chalk this up to few contributing factors. Millennials (18-34 year olds) were born and raised by the gas crisis generation (51-69 year olds). Those are the fortunate folks who grew up watching “The Dukes of Hazzard” and daily driving ratty muscle cars. Whether it be passion or nostalgia, those muscle crazed baby boomers of the ’70s-’80s still make up the majority of the hot rod community owning more than 2.5 million of the registered collector cars in The United States.
From humble beginnings this generation has spent the last two decades raising the classic car community as well as raising up their children, and they’ve been exposing their sons (and daughters!) to the wonderful world of Mopar muscle from a young age. With parents planting the seed and the .com boom providing an easily accessible avenue for an unlikely demographic to develop their interest and knowledge in the hobby, it’s no wonder we’re seeing a rise in women participation. So watch out boys, because The Dodge Girls are taking over!
