MSCC MARCH 10 STAR OF THE DAY: 1940 DODGE-REAL WORLD...THIS IS HOW YOU CELEBRATE A LATE SUMMER DAY
The world of old iron has two types of car guys.
There are the guys who limit their exposure to the combined hell known as real weather in real traffic so their rides never see a rainy day duking it out with guys in giant one-ton 4x4s.
MARCH 2014: A 1965 CHEVY C-10 WITH A STRONG CONNECTION TO ONE FAMILY
We spotted this 1965 Chevy C-10 Fleetside pickup while on our way to take a look at a retired military jet.
It was true the sight of a vintage warplane was the initial draw, but the bright red vintage Chevy truck held its own once we talked to the owner.
Current owner Alvin McColeman was very familiar with his truck because it came from his family farm where the truck played an active role in the farming operation.
Alvin's father was the truck's original owner and Alvin had learned how to drive in the Chevy.
MARCH 2014:1970 PLYMOUTH HEMI SUPER BIRD-UNDERSTATED WINGED WARRIOR
The 1970 Plymouth Super Bird was born because Richard Petty defected to Ford in the '69 NASCAR season.
That 's a very brief history of these winged warriors but it does distill history down to one sentence.
These cars were hardly stealthy sleepers but this one comes pretty close.
MARCH 2014: JAW DROPPER- A '63 CHEVY THAT'S NOTHING LIKE WHAT DAD DROVE
Chevy Impalas became a cultural icon in the sixties because they defined the American dream.They were trend-setting, stylish dependable cars with a US pedigree that was on a level with Coca Cola and baseball.
The Impala was born in 1958 but 1961 is when these cars really took off because they set a standard that the other two members of the Big Three had to chase.
Dad may have driven a '63 Impala back in the day but he never drove anything like "Jaw Dropper".
