Mark Berube only drives Mopar.

Regardless if he is driving to work, out for a cruise or driving slot cars.

“They call me Mopar Mark,” said the Lisbon Falls resident. “I just drive Mopar.”

Mopar is another label for Chrysler, and Berube has a 1964 Plymouth Fury in the garage. “It’s a crazy car,” said Berube. “A muscle car with a 440 in it.”

When he heads to work, he either climbs into a 2005 Dodge Magnum Hemi (summer) or a 2005 shortbox Ram 1500 truck (winter).

And at his other “work”? Berube drives an all-black 1969 Charger, a 1970 Barracuda and a 1961 Plymouth. All Mopars, and all 1:32 scale of the other cars he drives.

Berube and his son-in-law Kevin Morrissette recently opened Central Maine Slot Cars in the Auburn Mall.

The business centers around a 10-foot-by-20-foot race track called the “Flying Cow,” a name given to race tracks of one particular design.
