MSCC JULY 26 STAR OF THE WEEK: HOT RODDER’S VERSION OF WHO’LL STOP THE RAIN?
Car shows are at the mercy of the weather gods so every scheduled show is a crap shoot.
You can organize a year ahead and put people in place to make the show run smoothly but you can’t fight nature’s twisted sense of humor.
Yesterday this show was called halfway through thanks to a severe weather warning so the show emptied just as the deluge hit.
This MSCC Star of the Week rod owner was prepared with his version of “Who’ll Stop The Rain?”
MSCC JULY 25 STAR OF THE DAY: PANTERA-ITS 70S COOL IS TIMELESS
Most 70s cars stand out in traffic like 4-wheeled neon signs.
They’re definitely cool but clearly they come from another era.
This is so obvious non-car people can spot a ’75 Buick in traffic – even if they can’t ID it.
This MSCC Star of the Day Ford Pantera is so timeless and cool it fit right in with the new stuff surrounding it in traffic yesterday.
MSCC JULY 24 STAR OF THE DAY: WANT TO MAKE A GIANT BUICK CONVERTIBLE SHRINK?
There was an era when large and in charge cars dominated the roads.
It started in the 50s and peaked in the 70s with giant bumper cars.
They were kings of the road when king of the road meant your car was big enough to stick a Honda Civic in the trunk instead of a spare tire.
Times changed and cars got smaller but trucks got huge so now a Star of the Day Buick convertible looks like it shrunk in the wash when it’s beside a contemporary truck.

MSCC JULY 22 STAR OF THE DAY: IHC—BACK IN THE DAYS WHEN TRUCKS WEREN’T CADILLACS
There was a day when the only option you could get on a truck was a rear bumper and very few buyers popped for that option.
Pickups were thrashed until they gave up and the end for most light trucks was a bullet-ridden, rust-filled retirement on the edge of a pasture.
Trucks came into their own when they started building them for city slickers who liked the idea of a truck, but wouldn’t give up air conditioning and a nice, comfortable Cadillac-esque ride.
This MSCC Star of the Day IHC was a throwback to the day when trucks weren’t Cadillacs.
MSCC JULY 21 STAR OF THE DAY: ’65 METEOR MONTCALM— CANADIAN COMPROMISE FOR STYLE OVER SUBSTANCE
Canadians were notorious for their frugal car buying habits in the 1950s and 60s.
Canadians were unlike their flashy American cousins because they bought a car for function over form so the decision on the radio option was something that caused a lot of sleepless nights.
Occasionally a Canadian would dust off the wallet and buy a Canadian version of an upscale model because it was more affordable— yet it would still get the neighbor’s attention as a flashy ride.
This MSCC Star of the Day ’65 Meteor Montcalm is the perfect example of a Canadian compromise for style over substance.
