MSCC JUNE 6 STAR OF THE WEEK-A CHALLEY DELIVERS A LIFE LESSON IN THE RAIN
The majority of car guys love to drive their old iron.
Trailer queen is an insult to hardcore car guys but there are different levels for road trips.
Some guys will run them only on sunny days with no threat of rain while other guys will run them anytime, any season because it really comes down to depreciation on investment versus fun.
This MSCC Star of the Week Challenger was on the street last year during a particularly bad rainstorm and it delivered a great life lesson on how to have fun with old iron.
MSCC JUNE 6 STAR OF THE DAY: ’41 WILLYS GASSER—BREAK AWAY FROM THE PACK
A trip down any modern suburban street reveals one stark truth.
We live in a very bland era because the cars and the houses all look alike.
You could easily stumble into your neighbor’s house because he lives in a cloned version of your place and there’s a clone to your SUV in his driveway.
There’s only one solution to avoid being shot by your neighbor-you could break away from the pack and park this MSCC Star of the Day fuel injected, 392 ’41 Willys gasser in your driveway.
MSCC JUNE 5 STAR OF THE DAY: THE MAGIC OF A CLASSIC IMPALA ATTRACTS BRAND NEW FANS
Kids get a pretty rough ride in 2015 because most adults see them as unambitious couch potatoes locked into new tech gadgets like crack addicts are locked into street level drugs.
Like most generalizations, there’s a slim element of truth to it but kids are also well aware of the timeless cool factor in things from the past.
They may not know what they’re looking at but they sure know what they like—whether it’s brand new or 51 years old.
This kid knew what he liked when he was looking at this MSCC Star of the Day ’64 Chevy back in September 2013 because the magic of a classic Impala will always attract new fans.
MSCC JUNE 4 STAR OF THE DAY: FARHEN X-RAY CUSTOM ROADSTER-HISTORY SELLS CHEAP
Ray Fahrner was one of those guys who slipped under the radar in the car hobby.
He was off the map in the California builder dominated world of 60s customs but he did build a legendary custom (Boot Hill Express) from his home turf in Missouri.
Ray also started the legendary World of Wheels but one of his proudest creations went through an auction back in January 2015.
There is no adequate explanation why Ray’s MSCC Star of the Day Jag-powered Farhen X-Ray Roadster sold for a mere 33K but custom car history definitely sold cheap that day.
MSCC JUNE 3 STAR OF THE DAY: ’65 TRIBUTE COBRA–CLONES CAN BE COOL TOO
The term ‘clone car’ started around the same time TV car auctions became rating successes.
Eventually the term was softened to ‘tribute car’-maybe Madison Avenue ad guys offered some advice.
Whatever you call them-clone or tribute cars are affordable versions of automotive legends.
This mean and nasty looking clone/tribute version of a classic ’65 Cobra made a great MSCC Star of the Day .
MSCC JUNE 2 STAR OF THE DAY: CAN A ‘69 PONTIAC 4-DOOR SEDAN ENHANCE YOUR STYLE?
We live in very interesting times because now the Dick Tracy video watch is reality.
There is no doubt technology has exploded in the 21st century but have lost something in the process?
Most cars look like they came off a ‘one size fits all’ computerized automotive design program so we essentially drive clone cars in 2015 and that makes us all pretty generic.
Then you see a car like this MSCC Star of the Day ’69 Pontiac on the street last night and you know this car added a lot of style to the street.
MSCC JUNE 1 STAR OF THE DAY: ’64 CHRYSLER SARATOGA— UPSCALE RIDE IN AN ERA WHEN IT WAS OBVIOUS
The barometer for success in 1964 was pretty basic because it was found in your driveway.
A lot of guys drove entry level, stripped down, 4-door sedans in ’64 like Fords, Chevys and Plymouths because that was the limit for larger, middle class families.
Kids and mortgages were an anchor on finances in 1964 (just like today) so the default position for cars wasn’t found on a higher end car lot like Chrysler or Buick.
Cars like this MSCC Star of the Day ’64 Chrysler Saratoga 4-door hardtop were an upscale ride in an era when it was really obvious.
