A Galaxie of Holiday Cheer!

Newer Older

You may remember a bike featuring Santa Claus and Natasha, his sexy Russian mail order bride, from last Christmas. Well this year they’ve acquired a new custom ride; a 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 convertible. Close the hood and red lights will illuminate the engine compartment and can be seen through the unique hood window. A spacious trunk and back seat can be loaded with holiday gifts (or mischievous elves) and gold grille and rims, plus a dark red and dark green color configuration makes this Galaxie Christmasy, yet more sophisticated than your usual bright holiday colors. A classic white interior ties the whole Christmas theme together. The top can be used when transporting holiday cheer in the dead of winter...or it can come off when bringing toys to all the good boys and girls living in warmer climates. Either way, this is one classy cool custom ride! This was built for the Galaxie of Possibilities challenge over at LUGNuts.

I wish you all the very best holiday season and may you get all the Lego and other toys your hearts desire! Even you naughty kids. You know who you are.

    JD Luse...thanks

    Dylan...thank you

    Jason son...thank you for your kind words.

    Raphy...not sold on the window in the hood? I've always wanted to do that. it was my first time, usually I'd leave a hole for the blowers to come through but a window...pretty unusual.

    V&A Steamworks...As the challenge write up states; "The mid-sixties Galaxie was voted to have the most spacious back seat of any other car, making it the favorite amongst young drivers who enjoy...um...yanno...sitting. ;" So yes, Natasha fits very well in the back seat. Its even spacious enough to comfortably accommodate Natasha's mother who...let's just say is built to survive the long and brutal Siberian winters.

    Dunechaser...ok, I added. I'm honored to be featured once again, my man. Thank you!

    lichblau...Lino-esque. I like it! Thank you.
