Re: Brighter 64 Galaxie tail lights
No sweat Gary !
We know many hot rodders and 'purists' alike --all have their own style ......as to how they interpret their own "feel" .....using your word which fits really well.
I mainly was curious, that's all. Our cars are 'drivers' although some in our group are done to a high level, while the rest of us have 'drivers' in the other connotation, lol. The main common denominator is that everyone seems to be keen to adding items that allow the rest of the cars on the road to better deal with us. And to boot, we're all MSRA members, which offers a free 23 point car inspection --a nice extra something to help those owners who aren't that car savvy, for example.
I've added disc brakes (to avoid said peeps better), plus relayed headlamps to aid in seeing & being seen better at night too. But, if you were to look at my car you'd notice a mostly stock looking car with 'mag wheels' --that's it. (underneath is a whole nudder story, lol)
So I like the stock look and feel too, but I also like the security of knowing it's seen well, and if not, I've got the brakes to woah it, ha ! :p As far as what YOU need on yours, I'd say go by your gut .... Third brake lights aren't required by our safety inspectors, ...... things like that they seem to leave up to the individual.
Anyway, cruise away and happy tail-light shinin' to ya :p N
