MSCC APRIL 24 STAR OF THE DAY: ’69 CHEVROLET IMPALA CONVERTIBLE—MOON LANDINGS AND MUSIC FESTIVALS
1969 was a year with two major historical events.
The first one took place on July 20, 1969 when a man stepped on the moon…something they haven’t done in 43 years.
The other event (Woodstock) took place on August 15-17, 1969 and it was a massive Baby Boomer party...something they haven’t done in 43 years.
THE NAME GAME: HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE CAR GUY LANGUAGE OF LOVE
A photo of several abandoned trucks at an abandoned work site came across my newsfeed and became the basis for this piece on car guy lingo.
The photographer called the entire truck collection “Corn-binders”; a term only associated with International Harvester trucks-except his photo contained considerably more General Motors trucks than IH trucks.
The newsfeed is directed more towards photography than vintage trucks, but it was a bit jarring for me because of its blanket assessment of the old iron in the photo.
RICK DALE TELLS THE STORY BEHIND HIS AMERICAN RESTORATION TV SHOW FAME
One of the most popular shows on cable TV is American Restoration.
Nostalgia is big business for Rick’s Restorations because they bring memorabilia from the past back to life in their shop.
Rick Dale is the man behind the name and he is an energetic guy who mixes family and business in a very positive way.
APRIL 2015: A VERY RARE 1964 FARGO A-100 PULLED OUT OF A LONG HIBERNATION IN A BARN
Last year we managed to see exactly two A-100s during the entire summer show season.
The unusual trucks were not plentiful even when they were brand new, so two different A-100 stories is like a lottery win for us at MSCC.
This 1964 Fargo A-100 had a long history with one farm family, mostly on a lengthy timeout in their barn.
