    The Galaxie — The car is so stylish. Typical of the 60's. It sounds like a mean muscle car, but it gets alright gas milage at the same time. Not many repairs have been made to it besides initial restoration. And because all that was done at home the overall cost of the car was next to nothing. It's the best kind of ride to have. Everyone has something to say about it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Pretty Damn Awesome

    Cons: It was never built to go off road lol.

    Great For The Times — was my first beater, didn't look this nice tho, this is just what the car looked like, mine was yellow, black top, and a burgundy interior, was rusty, the floors were rotted out, but she ran and ran and ran, only gave her up to move to California, oh yeah I only paid $25.00 for her...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: the rust

    Cons: the hole in the floors

    Pros: It was a great car to drive.

    Cons: It needed a new top.

    The Cruiser. As Long As A Pontoon Boat, As Powerful As A Panzer Tank. Totally Awesome In Every Way. — Awesome car. Most people don't like that it's long and wide but I love it. The 352ci V8 engine just purrs out the sweetest rumble and will haul ass when you need it to. The 352 with a 3spd Crus-O-Matic tranny will haul in excess of 125mph+. It rides like your on a cloud. Up and down the gravel roads to church it just floats. The power steering is amazing glides like a dream. And with a solid weight of almost 3900 lbs it turns nice and still has enough power to burn rubber. We have a reciever on it and even pull trailers with it. We pulled a 12' trailer with 2 motorcycles, 3 golf bags, and luggage on it from Casper WYO to 60 miles south of Oklahoma City. I love it. Performance plugs, carb adjustments, intake, muffler system took me from 10-12mpg to 18-20mpg. Also you have to remember to put a lead substitute in the tank when you fill it up with gas or you'll screw your engine over.

    Pros: Everything. A/C, Radio, power steering, POWER AND SPEED

    Cons: The little gray ash trays that go in the door handle won't stay in for anything when you shut the door! that's the only problem.

    '66 Galaxie 500 — well we bought it on ebay for $500 out of oklahoma. it didnt run but it would start and it didnt have brakes that worked. well we have everything running now (engine 289 automatic, brakes, lights) and we even put lowering springs on the back! at the moment though it doesnt have shocks so if you barely push on the back end it bounces all over. hopefully it will be street legal soon

    Pros: old but quiet

    Cons: its old

    1966 Ford Galaxie — Right now it has a not so good paint job, i'm gonna go get a new one soon. I'm rebuilding the engine, it has a 352 V8. Only has 57,000 original miles! Even with its original engine and parts, it still burns rubber! The only thing wrong with the car is that it only gets 15 mpg. =( But. its still awesome and way funn to drive!

    Pros: Fast, Huge!

    Cons: Bad gas mileage

    Fast But Not Economical — 428 police interceptor develops over 400 brake hp. Handling sluggish and acceleration a little slow but the top end is amazing

    Pros: Power and comfort

    Cons: gas mileage and handling
