MSCC AUGUST 23 STAR OF THE DAY: '63 MERCURY MONTEREY CONVERTIBLE – A TOP DOWN RIDE BECKONS IN SUMMER
These are clearly the waning days of summer but that doesn't mean you pack away the convertible in storage before the rush.

THIS IS THE WAY TO CELEBRATE A 100 YEAR OLD ROAD: GET BACK ON THE SAME ROAD
A story out of Edmonton, Alberta Canada really caught our interest: A couple of car guys wanted to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Calgary-Edmonton Trail as a major historical automotive route between Calgary and Edmonton.
The C&E Trail was the first major shift from horse to horseless carriage in 1914 because cars were still in their teething stages at the time.
The man behind the idea was Ray Fowler and it was clear Ray had a real passion for a bygone era from long before he was born a car guy.
A FIELD FILLED WITH BROKEN DREAMS TAKES A FINAL CURTAIN CALL
One of the biggest stories of the summer was a mid-August auction of 600 vehicles ranging in age from the 1920s to the 70s, with a large segment of cars from the 1950s and 60s in the mix.
Car guys from all over North America were aware of the Spruce Grove, Alberta, Canada auction because these events are not common in the 21st century.
The cars were stored on a few acres of land and were a sentimental reminder of a bygone era when yards like this one were fairly common.

Corn-binders were found on the farm, on the construction site, at the warehouse and occasionally at the brewery.
