AUGUST 2012 FALLEN STARS – WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF A FALLEN STAR?
There’s a question that surfaces about the Fallen Star section at mscc.
Some guys wonder if it’s simply a catchall term for an old car or truck that’s past the parts car stage and well into a date with Mr. Car Shredder.
Turning a 63 Rambler sedan into a mass of metal confetti is a pretty spectacular ending for an old family friend but the key word is “fallen” star, not shredded star.
The truth is, that pre-shredder stage is just one example of a Fallen Star.
A Fallen Star can be an old Mercury wagon that hasn’t seen daylight in 30 years in the back of a garage or a dust covered 18,000 original mile 65 Chevrolet 3 ton grain truck inside a farm equipment shed…
Sometimes it’s a Beetle parked outside the shed.
A Fallen Star can be an old Chevy Impala buried in the bank of a river or covered in moss in the middle of a forest.
There’s really no hard line definition for a Fallen Star but it does follow a simple rule – a Fallen Star is a neglected old ride of any type that meant something to somebody, somewhere, sometime.
Special thanks go out to Tracy Lanski for some of these classic Fallen Star pictures.
