MSCC MARCH 8 STAR OF THE WEEK: ’67 CHRYSLER-THE ANTI SUMMER OF LOVE RIDE
1967 was best known for the Summer of Love because hippies tuned in, turned on and dropped out in record numbers.
They headed for cities like San Francisco where Love-Ins and psychedelic drugs were so popular, California almost put it in the tourist brochures.
The cool hippies made the trip in old busses or VW vans for a few basic reasons ; they were cheap, they really looked good decked out in Flower Power paint and you could pack 40 or 50 of your best hippie buddies into them.
None of them got there in an anti-Summer of Love ride like this MSCC Star of the Week ‘67 Chrysler 4-door sedan.

This MSCC Star of the Day ’79 Ford truck is a pristine example of a disco era working stiff.
