MSCC MAY 14 STAR OF THE WEEK: ’67 CHARGER—YES THERE WAS A CHARGER BEFORE 1968

 

The ’68 Charger changed the game for Mopar B-Bodies.

 

B-Bodies were slab-sided, functional boxes with incredible engineering backed up by monsters under the hood but they didn’t get many points for style until the ’68 Charger hit the showrooms.

 

This MSCC Star of the Week ’67 Charger was at a show yesterday.

Yes, there was a Charger before 1968 and it definitely deserved points for style.

 

 

MSCC MAY 13 STAR OF THE DAY: 1957 TURNPIKE CRUISER—50S STYLE IS ALIVE AND WELL IN 2017

 

There was no period in the history of the automobile that could match the visual cues of the midlate 1950s.

 

There was no combination of chrome, stainless steel and space age styling cues that could match the 1955-59 era.

 

This MSCC Star of the Day ’57 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser in traffic yesterday is a great example.

50s style is alive and well in 2017.    

 

 

MSCC MAY 12 STAR OF THE DAY: ’56 BUICK—THE 21ST CENTURY VERSION

 

Old cars can go down one of three roads.  

 

An old ride can (a) disappear off the face of the planet; (b) be reborn as a mint version of its former self; or (c) hit the street as a totally different ride.

 

This MSCC Star of the Day ’56 Buick went down the “c” road.

It’s a 21st century version of a ’56 Buick.

 

MSCC MAY 11 STAR OF THE DAY: TRIUMPH TR6—HARDTOPS ARE A RARE SIGHT

 

The key to a classic open British sports car is the “open” part.

 

These vintage Brits were a full body experience so if you expect them to be as comfortable as a new Lexus you’re definitely in the wrong car.   

 

This MSCC Star of the Day in traffic yesterday is a TR6 with a removable hardtop.

They’re a rare sight on a classic British sports car.

 

MSCC MAY 10 STAR OF THE DAY: THE PERFECT SETTING FOR A 1958 IHC A-100

 

Working trucks rarely got off the farm back in the 1950s.

 

They didn’t put a lot of miles on but the miles they did pile up were typically under severe load because trucks were worker bees, not queen bees.    

 

This MSCC Star of the Day 1958 IHC A-100 was spotted near an old farm house.

 

IMGP9819-001

 

It was the perfect setting for a genuine working class truck.

 

 

MSCC MAY 9 STAR OF THE DAY: NOT QUITE TOP DOWN WEATHER

 

The true measure of the old car season is found in the convertibles.

 

If you can ride comfortably in an open convertible then you’ve entered the old car season.

 

This MSCC Star of the Day still had its roof on yesterday.

 

18361417_10154293017035059_1915982027_n

 

It’s not quite top down old car season yet.

 

MSCC MAY 8 STAR OF THE DAY: CUDA—YES, THE BIGGER NUMBERS MATTER

 

Football is often called a game of inches because the difference between a first down and a turnover often comes down to inches.

 

Cars are exactly the same because cubic inches do matter—there’s no replacement for displacement.

 

This MSCC Star of the Day ‘Cuda is running a very non-stock 493 cubic inches.

 

18361150_10154290374605059_293920818_n

 

Yes, the bigger numbers matter.
