1966 Ford Galaxie 500

i saw one of these tonight on the highway as i drove home. it had the 390 in it, and some period mag wheels. red with black top. very nice. i would've loved to have seen it with the top down. the guy was cruising pretty slow, so i slowed down to take it in as i passed.

they really don't seem big anymore. in the 80's, as all cars downsized, the cars of the 60's and 70's seemed so big. now that suv's and such are so popular, they appear downright moderate. i know that the freestyle is a bit longer than the galaxie. i bet the freestyle gets better milage, though...

Back in high school my girlfriend's father had one just like that. I remember cruising the country roads at night, top down, no power brakes or steering, feeling free.
