NICE !!! It's incredible how just a set of rims can change a cars look.
Cant wait to see it when shes done. So what color paint ?
Mine is still in the shop,I had told my friend ( the owner) to take his time , that was a mistake. Oh well I'm going to see if I can take some pics this weekend of the progress or lack of.
Yours is looking good, I dig that 60's cruiser style!

I kinda like the lake pipes, but I've been called strange at least once in the last few years :^)

I'm with gbeeler, i like the pipes too. Don't see them that often unless it's on some hotrod or a merc or something. Almost never on a 64 gal.
Nothing wrong with strang gbeeler. We all have our assets.

I saw a plate I should have the other day on an SUV.
Said "I M NUTZ"

You could always do "I-M NUTZ", "IM NUTZ", OR "I M NTZ" even though the other one is taken. They don't make a plate large enough to put "Completely obsessed with spending all my money on this crazy car!" Come to think of it "I M NUTZ" kinda says all that in fewer words.

Hey 1157, yup deep six the lakes. I thaught I saw your car on ebay today, but it's just like it. I guess your all talkin license plates too. Here in Ontario, they let you use year plates, and I have a mint pair. It will be teets. What's not is the fact that for another year I'm not driving in the woodward cruise, next year right?

uuuumummmmmmmmmmm yeah, heres the story. . . . . . . .

I bought the 63 Galaxie and was really stoked on it, i did alot of work on it in the first year, i had some cash and was gonna bag it, but didn't quite have enough to do it. After some time i started looking at some other 60's cars, i worked out that if i sold the Galaxie and added my funds i would have alot of $$$ to play with on a new project. Anways once i sold the galaxie i realized how much i loved it and how good it had been to me [ awwwwww
] , i also realized that i hadn't finished doing what i wanted to it, the reason i bought this 64 was so can get it to where i want it. I always like the 64's more, always wanted a XL, and liked the idea of running a 289. This Galaxie is gonna be full custom, bagged, flaked out roof, shaved, bellflowers, really simple and clean.

I definitely took the hard road to get here, but im really stoked with the way things turned out.

Ford forever
