Welcome-
I like the format of this site over any others Ive seen...only drawback for U.S. is the site is mostly Australian, but actually to me it makes it more interesting- lot of the same old iron with different names- and I wont point fingers but somebody's got their steering wheels on the wrong side : )

If you are not a member of the Ford Galaxie Club of America, I'd kinda suggest thinking about it- lot of info, catalogs, sources, etc for old parts...
heres a link to their 'mail list' (format I really hate, but it does get a lot of galaxie traffic)

http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/...club/messages/

They had a Forum kinda like this (ezboard or something like that) but it got sunk by a couple naysayers before it had a chance to take off...it is on a poor system anyway compared to this- now with popups(adware I think)...I wasted a lot of time there.

whoever put this site together really did a super job- each user can store pics here in their gallery, or link them from elsewhere, so on, etc...I look around in here a lot, just because I like the site-and its really neat to see whats going on on the far side of the world- some neat stuff. Dont know why Ford dont sell those little 'Ute' pickups over here : )

Yeah steering wheel on the wrong side perhaps.
But in australia, we turn all the good stuff the US has to offer, into something the US people only dream about.

Re: New Member

Yeah ive never driven in the US so i suppose i cant judge.
Also what has Ford got to match the likes of the LS7 and so forth, i hear ford has nothing? I think an aussie team should be employed to design something to rival it, seeing us Aussies design everything else good, haha.

With the pwr windows i need to open up the doors to see if theyll fit and so forth. Ill reply to your PM later.

Re: New Member

HI, this is a very good website, nice to see some more Galaxie owners on here. They are great old cars now. Had one brand new in 63. I have owned the one I have now for just over 17 years. Needed a lot of work when I bought it, but body was all done, so did a gradual rebuild and restoration as I drove it. That way it wasn't tied up for years getting done. They are great cruisers. Mine has 390 with 4bbl (also a Z code) auto trans, pw and ps with a few extra options. Original motor was a 352 (X code) but somewhere along the line someone put in a 390. Anyway, keep those ball joints greased on these cars. I've seen those late fifties early sixties fords on the side of the road with a popped lower ball joint.
