Throwback car show attracts street rods, decades-old classics twice a month to Goose Creek diner

Naming highlights of his 1972 Dodge Duster, owner and LMC Member Alan Driggers quickly fell into car-speak. His 43-year-old coupe boasts a new or fixed-up “318 small block (engine), cam, body (work), double hood scoop, mag rims.” Roughly translated, he installed or rebuilt a 318-cubic-inch displacement V-8 engine with moderate sized, but no less beefy, small “block” — the solid cast car part housing the cylinders and their components; “cam” to operate the valves; painting and repairs to the body; two hood scoops — or elevated intakes — to allow air directly to the engine to enhance performance; and lightweight “mag” or magnesium, wheel rims.

The Charleston-area Street Rods Unlimited dates to 1974. To learn about street rods and check for upcoming cruise-ins, visit www.streetrodsunlimited.org.
