i picked up this 66 galaxie for $400 a couple weeks ago. it had a runnin 4 barrel 390 in it so it wasnt to bad of a deal.. tearin it down right now and will probally start the restorin process in a few weeks. gonna rebuild that engine with some extra hp, put a black and red 2 tone paint, shaved doors, antenna, and trunk, and 20" on the rear and 19" front foose speedster black wheels for the somewhat dragster stance. Let me know wut ya think!
Thanks
Michael

That'll look sick. Got any more pics of the car?

Props on starting young. I'm 19 and my dad got me working on cars when I was 9ish also. The only time i've taken my Jeep (or any of our cars) to the shop was for a free Cat. Coverter under recall.

PICS! :up2somet:

Heres the color im going to paint the car. 2006 dodge charger copper. It will be all that color not black on top like this 1 is. And ill have similiar rims but im going to paint the spokes the same color to match the car leaving a chrome lip and chrome wheel accents behind the spokes to keep brake dust off.
