I purchase a used 1967 used ford Galaxie, and it drove like a new car. Drove smooth and I did not hear the engine. I felt save driving it, because it was a big car. In 1979 we had a bizzer in New Jersey, and I was in college at the time. It usually took me 40 minutes to get home. I kept driving and notice that allot of the drivers were parked and ever a tracter trailer. It was hard to see, because the snow was coming down heavy. I decided to continue driving, because I was hungery and I had a 2 year old waiting for me. I got home safe without anything happening. My father who owned a Ford truck, said you can rely on Ford, but do not do that again.
