Well, kind of surprised to see this pop up after so long, but thank you everyone for your comments.

Being able to afford a sealed one, and also being able to recreate an actual car in the process, well let's just say it was worth every penny to me! ;)

I had the hardtop way back in the day. As well as I can remember it had Stock car parts. Talk about pressure a rare kit and a sweeeeet build up. Nice job on the Big Ford.

I've always loved the lines of the 60's Galaxies. Sharp build.
