LX owners and their “babies” packed the parking lot of Beach Burgers in Huntington Beach, California, last night for the traditional kickoff of the 2012 Spring Festival of LXs.

This ‘car crazy’ love-fest for all things LX is the highpoint of the year for these owners, who can’t wait to meet up with old friends and new friends who share their passionate bond for these iconic cars. LX is the basic platform for the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger and the now-discontinued Dodge Magnum.

Several Chrysler Group engineers, designers and product folks are also joining in the weekend’s celebrations. This year’s seventh annual gathering is the biggest yet with 1,000+ participants from all over the country – ready and roarin’ to celebrate with activities and get-togethers throughout the weekend. Take a ‘quick’ taste of last night’s LX celebration in the video, and come on back throughout the weekend for a look at more of the action.
