Always liked the bigger Fords, especially Pop's 20 MPG 390 LTD. Mustangs do take flak, but there's no denying the heritage. Beautiful car, motor.

Beautiful car there. I always had a soft spot for Falcons and Fairlanes (specifically the 64 Thunderbolt).

My best friend growing up had a bitchin' 68 Falcon with a wicked 302 and top loader 4 speed. She was one mean ride, I almost puked the day I found out he sold her. frown

Hey Wedgy

Did you know that come August 23rd & 24th 2019 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa they will be hosting Ford Galaxie Nationals?

I can't wait, my fist car was a 1969 Ford Galaxie 500, 2 dr, hardtop, 351W. Miss that car!!

Well Thanks Bob! I drove out of town into the "Dirt," and looked North. It looks like a pretty straight shot, right on up there, nooo problem, and If I was high enough I could probably even see it from here. Depends...


Len, "Pop" Spadt, my future FIL, Ford guy, owned Precision Engine in Escondido. I needed the heads done on my first car, one thing led to another. LOL. A 1961 Olds Super 88 4 door sedan. 394 cu in 4bbl, white, blue interior. 345 hp. OMG... Everybody should own one tire roaster, and at least once in their life, go 100+ MPH! Right?

I have owned a few tire roasters in my glory days and paid for all the miles I left one way of the other! And just last year, found out that my van is a 1 wheeled wonder. Needless to say they were new tires and the engine still has a ton more life in her than I estimated.
