    yep.

    but to be honest ive swapped cars/projects and direction a lot in the last few years and I'd like to get stuck into a decent project, so want to think it through and not go off half cocked. Hence just exploring some ideas out loud

    would that be why you keep buying more projects instead of getting on with the galaxie then?

    Yep sure is, but there was a method to my madness, I've now trader up through a few cars to be able to either sell the truck or the Galaxie and that's my project build fund

    ok so when did you last see a mid sixties stack headlight galaxie at a run compared to how many chevy trucks (or mustangs for that matter)? it's a no brainer mate plus the engine bay's huge (like a truck) so anything with fit. so rarity, you can fit more than 2 mates in with you and easy to work on, win, win.

    Despite lack of oomph from a RR engine - wouldn't it be trick to also swap-in the high pressure (Citroen patent) braking system and self levelling suspension. RR brakes are superbly powerful - how many people realise that front discs on a Shadow have two calipers each side?
