    Aweome!!! — I hated the rust that came with the car when I first purchased it as a project car. It was so bad I almost gave up on it. But, i'm glad I stuck with it because now it looks immaculate.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Fun to drive, it a everyday driver, it's a classic, very roomy and I feel safe in it. No matter where the car goes, it seems to gets a  lot of attention.

    Cons: The only bad thing about my 65 Galaxie is the gas mileage which is 15 MPG. Now that I had just rebuit the engine to a high performance, OH BOY, i'll be getting 10 MPG now :/ Although it doesn't have the best gas mileage, It's a fun car to drive that it make you forget about the gas price.

    Shes My Baby. — She's old, faded, and rusty, but shes still a beast and soon she'll be a beautiful piece of machinery again. Cars were built well before the 70's, and this is no exception, she's on her way to becoming a show car and will hopefully have a long life with me.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Reliability, turning head-ability, awesomeness

    Cons: There are none, go get yourself one.

    1965 Is The Best Year Yet To Go Ford! — The 289 V-8 combined with C4 Cruise-O-Matic is the ultimate in spirited, economical, and reliable performance. This car like any machine needs regular maintenance, that is what makes them last. Style is a matter of taste of course but in my opinion it doesn't get much better than a 1965 Ford. And as we all know, the 1965 Ford rides quieter than a Rolls-Royce.

    Pros: Style, Roominess, Performance, Reliability, Economy

    Cons: None of which I am aware

    Good Car — This cars engine is tired. Over 200,000 miles on it and it starts right up. Has had only one repair, a leaking fuel line. Looks really nice inside and out. Gas mileage is good and is fun to drive. Thanks for looking.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Still drivable after 45 years

    Cons: none

    Just Look One Up, It's A Beautiful Car. — considering the car was 43 years old when i stopped driving it to do a restoration, it's still what i rate other cars i drive against as far as handling, braking, and comfort. with all wheel drum brakes it stopped surprisingly quick, topped out at 98mph... in second gear (equipped with the 3-speed Cruise-o-Matic transmission, and though it was a tank was the most comfortable ride i could wish for. i really miss cruisin in my baby. :'( had some of my best times in that beast and i more than willingly paid for the 12mpg i got on the good days... with a light foot and the wind at my back. wouldnt trade it for ANYTHING built within the last 20 years. never.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: it's history, one of the best.

    Cons: gas milage, but a different transmiussion with overdrive would probably bring it up around 20mpg.

    1965 Ford Galaxie — Performance- My only complaint is that it's brakes are not the best, but that is what you expect from a car with all drum brakes. Build Quality-This car is solid, and from being from 1965 it is fairly easy to repair, but becaues it is old it does need work. Appearance-BEAUTIFUL, classic, and full of Chrome Cost of Ownership- Pretty bad gas milage, but that is what you would expect from a car with a 390 ci V8 from 1965. Fun Factor- So much fun to drive, and to just look at.

    Pros: It is a true classic

    Cons: It needs work to keep running becuase of its age.

    Classic — Got it all original with a, late build, 352FE big block. Kept the 427 medium riser heads and swapped tham onto a 390 short block. Ended up pushing about 12:1 and cranking out about 400 hp with 500+ ft/lbs of torque.

    Pros: Great cruiser and tire smoker.

    Cons: I got rid of it!

    "things Ain't So Bad, Cuz I Got A Galaxie 500"-reverend Horton Heat — Note: This is not my pic, this is just what I plan on making mine look like. It is currently in my Aunt's garage, unoperational. White, Red Interior, 352 FE engine, 3 speed auto with shifter in the console. Tons of room inside... and no rear seat belts!

    Pros: Classic V8 sound, leg and head room, classy

    Cons: Gas mileage and the fact it hasn't been started in 5 years.
