JANUARY 2013 FALLEN STARS--A NEW YEAR SHOULD ALWAYS BEGIN WITH HOPE FOR NEW BEGINNINGS
The start of a New Year is always synonymous with new beginnings.

One of the most popular sections at mscc is the Fallen Stars section but it's also the most difficult section to meet the monthly deadline.
Fallen Stars are like archeological digs because you have to sift through a lot of dirt to find an artifact.
It gets worse because these "digs" for decrepit old cars and trucks are vanishing faster than summer heat in September because of stupid nanny state laws.
