Did yall see the 67 ragtop on Overhaulin last night? What a fine ride . I wonder just how much money it would cost an average joe to build a ride like that?

I saw that. Very nice. I'll bet they chuckled when they heard mama, as she was passing out the puccha-bead leis, say "I want everyone to get leid."

I kind og laughed when they had engine mount issues. But the frame notching for the headers was genius! Wish I thought of that!

This topic was the first thing I thaught about and here it is. Always a big fan of Foose, having met him in Detroit. Awesome guy, not all Hollywood, and beyond talented. Finally a Galaxie on the show. Mom gave em crap for swearing too much. I'm waiting for my surprise, anyone????? Chip????

Nice job but a few nits. I don't understand why they put in a small block when it came with a 390. I didn't care for the 63 Galaxie logos on it as well. But this is good publicity for the big Fords..

Because they belong on a 63 or do you just not like the 63 badges?

I like the look of the 63 Galaxie badges but they really don't belong on a '67... But disk brakes don't bother me since they are an safety improvement. Just presonnal preference..

either that..or, as we that love and cherish FE's already know, they are a little more expensive to build, harder to find good raw stock for a build (not likely you will find an assembled one sitting around the shop, without a name attached to it) and require some skill to finish correctly.

Some people just don't get "it". Not having an FE in a Galaxie that came with one ... its like trying to eat fried Chicken with a knife and fork. Sure you can do it, it may even be neater and more civliized ... but what's the point?

Then again, maybe they were doing him a favor; many years ago a guy offered to do me a favor by trading me a nice running late model, 4-door pontiac for my 57 fairlane, straight across, 'cause he hated to see a young kid wasting time and money on them old cars. Shame on me...Seems I was just too stupid to realize a good deal when I saw it?
