My vote is for a '66 7 Litre coupe, metallic green, with red line tires and bottle caps.

Ah Steve, you stole my car before I could post. Mine is close though. 66 7 Liter Hardtop, black with white interior, pencil stripe white walls and the factory "Mag" hub caps. Sharpest big bodied FoMoCo ever made in my oppinion. Alex

Well, I'm still in love with that '61 Galaxie Sunliner, 390 engine. When/if I find one, I won't be able to afford it anyway.

Yeah Steve, with the special 2.5 inch long chrome lug nuts that protruded through the wheel covers. Alex

Not knowing much about the classic ford sedan's, I can't say I really have a favorite. My mom did own a Galaxie 500 at one time, but it must have had the smaller engine in it, whatever that may have been, because it didn't move out real well.

Then I started thinking (always a dangerous thing, LOL) what about my Crown Vic! Yeah!

My vote is cast for my wonderful 4.6L 1996 Ford Crown Victoria! And no, there will not be a recount!

I was watching Speedvision last night and they had Jay Leno on a special. Guess what??? Jay spec-ed out a brand new 66 Seven Liter Galaxie for his dad. They ordered it and it came in 5 weeks. His dad had no idea of what he was getting and it was a very funny anecdote. Jay said that his dad even got a 110 MPH speeding ticket in the car. Cool huh? Alex

I heard him tell that tale before. It was very funny. Jay's dad had no idea what he ordered!
