MAY 2013 MSCC STARS IN TRAFFIC: IT'S ALL ABOUT TIMING AND THE TIME IS RIGHT
Car guys are some of the most finicky people on the planet. You get that way when you've invested tens of thousands in hard earned bucks to make an old car new....or better than new.
That's why you rarely see vintage iron on the streets before all the winter crap is gone. The last thing you need is winter gravel aimed at your 1200 dollar windshield or bouncing off your 25,000 dollar paint job.
CAN YOU ID AN OLD CAR OR TRUCK? DON'T GET IT WRONG WHEN YOU GO PUBLIC.
One of the best things about old iron is the learning curve. Every conversation with a car guy is a free education about the car or truck in question...all you have to do is ask questions.
Most car guys are more than willing to talk about their old ride because it's like asking them to talk about their kids. Especially when their kid is an honors student or a star athlete.
This free education comes with one condition-never get the kid's name or the car's information wrong.
