As a Teenager growing up in Southern Maryland my favorite sport was NASCAR. My Favorite car, of course was the Ford Galaxie 500. With the crossed Flag Decals, its 429 CI engine, I marveled at the winning percentage of such drivers like Jr. Johnston and Bill Elliott.
So, of course I had to have one. Although the introduction of the Mustang in 1964 set my mind in a different direction, my first Car actually ended up being a black 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 Xl coupe, with black bucket seats a 390 CI engine and 4 on the floor. Unfortunately Uncle Sam called me to duty and I had to sell it. But today, in my garage sits a reminder. This White 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL convertible shown in the picture submitted. Ah! The good old days….
