VIDEO> Some Old Ford… 1964 Galaxie 500 XL

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a Ford fanboy, but my bias shouldn’t affect how cool this video is. The quirks this guy remembers about the process of buying his Ford Galaxie are what make the car culture so great. I definitely respect his decision to keep the car in its current cosmetic state because it shows the car’s character without being a jalopy. As long as that 427 is growling, I frankly don’t care what the cosmetics look like. He admits that a WRX would smoke the old Detroit boat, but we all know that speed isn’t always everything. Enjoy!
