MAY 22 STAR OF THE WEEK-FURIOUS FINS…58 PLYMOUTH

There are many reasons why this 1958 Plymouth is the Star of the Week.

One is that this is a great picture-it’s one that I would have been proud to have taken but full credit goes to Donnie Taylor.

Another reason is that this is a classic 1950s Mopar fin car-they’re rare and getting rarer at most car shows-that’s a huge loss.

One more reason is simple-this is a Christine tribute car and it knows where I live…great looking car, great looking picture for this week’s MSCC “Star of the Week”.

MAY 21 STAR OF THE DAY

This was taken at a recent car show just after the rains came…the diehards who stayed became collective Stars of the Day.

MAY 20 STAR OF THE DAY-CLASSIC CAMARO … CLASSIC SHOT

This was a great looking car and the picture was taken late in the fall.Sometimes the sun, the moon and stars align and you get a great picture of a legendary ride.

This is one of those times.

Look for the story behind this Camaro in a future MSCC car story.

MAY 19 STAR OF THE DAY- A PINK 1960 DODGE FROM A KID’S PAST

Oddly enough, I was most interested in the pink 1960 Dodge in the background of this photo. It was the principal family-hauler for a large farm family that lived down the road from me when I was a kid.

Its days of glory are long past and it now rusts in peace as a parts car in the family’s back 40. But I will never forget that pink family chariot stuffed to over-capacity with kids when it was a young road warrior.

MAY 18-STAR OF THE DAY:1958 PLYMOUTH…CHRISTINE IN THE DAYTIME

This is one of those pictures that you wish you’d taken of a car that you wish you owned. Donnie Taylor owns this Christine and he’s an expert in fin car restoration.

Clearly he knows how to handle a camera too-this is a great picture of the world’s most dangerous car in daylight.

MAY 17-STAR OF THE DAY: A LITTLE NASH RAMBLER STATION WAGON

This restoration candidate was trailered into a recent swap meet parking lot and it received a lot of attention. It was an early 50s Nash Rambler wagon that would probably fit the Barrett-Jackson “terminally cute” label to a tee.

We have no idea what the future holds for this wagon, but one of its cousins was inside the building and mated up to a Chevy small block-the cousin was definitely not terminally cute at that point.

 MAY 16 STAR OF THE DAY-THE PERFECT MOONSHINE CAR

This is an amazing car on its own-a factory 427 R code 1963 Ford 2 door sedan. The story behind the car is even more amazing because it had a brief but spectacular career as a moonshine runner.

The big Ford was seized in 64 and sold in the early 80s for 1000 bucks at auction.

Some might call this rare Ford the buy of the decade but here it’s the Star of the Day…very cool ride.

MAY 15 2011 STAR OF THE DAY-COMMITMENT TO THE HOBBY

This picture was taken by Challenger Dave-a guy whose commitment to the old car hobby is unsurpassed. He’s what the old car world is all about-an average guy with a huge fondness for old iron.

That’s why this picture was so significant.

He was on his way to a September car show in British Columbia when he was caught in a mountain blizzard. He didn’t turn around even though he was exposing his beloved ride to some nasty weather.

The show must go on-that’s a real car guy.
