I just bought some Falcon parts from someone on Ebay who has a '62 Galaxie "M" code 390.What is a "M" code? It takes me back to the days of 406s, 409s and the little old lady from Pasadena's Super Stock Dodge.

LOL Alex!
I get that same feeling sometimes, but in my case it's usually after I post something dumb.
