I got rid of the galaxie, and got one of my fav. cars, a 29 roadster! It needs some work (so did the galaxe, but it runs GREAT!) Its got a basicly stock 302, c4, and 3:73 gears, It will roast them through all 3 gears if you let it. Here is a pic my mom took while I was leaving her house...

The rims are vintage tourqe trust's. At first I was'nt too crazy about the angled door, but it does add atlot of arm room, and as you can tell, I'm a big dude. The dude I baught it from said he new this car when he was 10, and he is probbibly mid 60's, so this rod was built years ago. The added the 302, boxed the frame, and put mustang 2 front susspension on it, wich I'll probbily change to a drop axle sooner or later. I finally got an old hot rod! now I got to get used to cuirsing in this winter weather with no top!

Nope.....Its got 2!:D BTW I only had $2,100 in my galaxie, and I traded even for this thing. Does that mean I'm in the under $3000 club?
