Love your screenname, btw--best damn car ever, period.
I had a Galaxie 500 too. Loved that car! My buds called it the living room because it was almost as big as one inside.
We had many rolling wrestling matches in that car. I'd never tell my kids this today, but the cloth seats were the color of beer. That helped alot because one or 2 were spilled during those wrestling matches.
Would never do that kind of stuff these days. But I was a stupid kid back then and believed the commonly held notion that I would live forever, no matter how many stupid things I did.
