no way you're gonna turbo it? Niice dude. I heard a few people who supercharged it. With 220hp at the wheels it turns into a whole different car they say

yeah, couple guys in my club supercharged. a couple turbocharged. they really need that extra kick to be perfect. I actually just finished. I still need to wait for the new ECU map from AVO, but I gave it a little bit of a kick and it feels great

Hey it's Chewy and his galaxie! What's up man?

And mine is this gem. 1967 Shelby Cobra. Mmmmmmmmm
User avatar #323 to #215 - chewythewolftwo (10/02/2013) [-]
My grandmother actually had a Javelin. ****** love em. I looked at those too before I settled on Ms. Sasha. But I agree with finishing your truck first, because then you can DD It (To be honest, don't dump thousands in to it unless you really truly plan on keeping it forever and only using it as a secondary car) and haul parts with it while you build something real serious that you'll fall in love with even more
User avatar #324 to #323 - psychopsychedelic (10/03/2013) [-]
That's what I've been thinking! Maybe give the Lumina back to my dad after I finish it up. Then driving the Nissan around as my main car and having the project car
User avatar #325 to #324 - chewythewolftwo (10/03/2013) [-]
Eeeeeeexactly. I never planned on working on my Taurus but one thing lead to another, and yeah, it'll probably end up being faster than my Galaxie by a long shot now, lol
#326 to #325 - psychopsychedelic (10/03/2013) [-]
Ah but speed compares little to the class and sexiness of an old Galaxie.
#328 to #326 - chewythewolftwo (10/03/2013) [-]
I was also considering wheels like these to go under the Maroon paint. Just a little bit wider, lol.
#327 to #326 - chewythewolftwo (10/03/2013) [-]
I'm glad we agree on that, lol.
I planned on having the Galaxie be my go-fast car, but that'll be the Taurus now. Then the Galaxie will just be the badass one. Suspension, brakes, nice slightly modernized interior, big motor, etc. I'm unsure as of yet whether I'll stick to satin black with a pale green roof/interior/steel wheels, or if I'll bring it back to the factory Maroon. Thoughts?
I might rock the first option for a couple years while I save some $$ and then lift the body off the frame and get a fresh one to do a full 100% restomod on all at once.
User avatar #329 to #327 - psychopsychedelic (10/03/2013) [-]
Dat maroon.

Gloss black would look sleek as hell too. When in doubt, go black.

I like those wheels too. But yeah leaving it as the flat black for a while til you get enough money for the resto is probably in your best interest.
User avatar #330 to #329 - chewythewolftwo (10/04/2013) [-]
Right? I like it more than I thought I would. And I love black too, but something about a shade of red that isn't screamingly bright is somehow.. Elegant for a musclecar that should have around 500 ponies when it's all said and done. I saw the wheels on another Mustang when I was Autocrossing a couple weeks ago and that's when it hit me, I need to go back on the 20th of October to ask the guy about em, if he shows up.

And yeah, I think I'll rock it ratty and badass (Mexican blanket interior, anyone?) For a couple summers just to get by. Besides, I found out the slot mags I have on the car are actually Cragars, so they're high quality and now I don't mind keeping em around. I thought they were cheap knockoffs, lol

User avatar #334 to #333 - chewythewolftwo (10/06/2013) [-]
I actually took an uber short drive up the road yesterday, and am terrified to say that it feels like driving a big ball of momentum with no response from it whatsoever, lol. Steering is "there", brakes are passable but the nose decides to try and drag bumper on the ground which also makes the car want to stall out for some reason, suspension feels like riding on a million sheets of cottonelle (A bad thing) and the acceleration is more like a sudden gust of wind pushing you the direction the nose is pointed, very VERY quickly, lol. It's ****** terrifying in the best way
User avatar #335 to #334 - psychopsychedelic (10/07/2013) [-]
Hahaha " ****** terrifying in the best way" that is great.

Yeah I went back and redid three of the four wheels over in black. They look sweet. I'll post pics when I'm not being so lazy. I didn't get much else done because of the rain but this coming weekend I have four days off. I plan on ripping out the soundproofing stuff in the cab. It's messy and deteriorated. Any suggestions on what to put in place? I hate carpeted interiors.
User avatar #336 to #335 - chewythewolftwo (10/08/2013) [-]
Dude hell yeah I'd love to see more pictures of that truck, I love hardbodies with a passion.
And as far as replacing the interior? I dunno what you're going for, but hell, if you're going cheap and don't give a **** about loud, why not just spray the floor with rubber bed liner? Or you could get a proper fitting vinyl floor ( You need to login to view this link It was like 96 bucks from what I saw) or who knows what beyond that. Maybe invest in some dynamat and do the cab if you're putting a little bit of comfort in to the ride? Behind door panels and everything, helps really quiet up a ride and I plan on doing it to my Taurus and Galaxie alike.
#337 to #336 - psychopsychedelic (10/08/2013) [-]
I've got a few but none from the work I did this weekend. I Was thinking the roll in bed liner would win out.
#338 to #337 - psychopsychedelic (10/08/2013) [-]
I lied. It uploaded faster than I though.
User avatar #339 to #338 - chewythewolftwo (10/09/2013) [-]
I really like that truck, lol. Craigslist will be your best friend too, for things like a bumper and other misc crap. Especially if it's going to be a cheap runner. And hey! Take this as an opportunity to learn how to paint. Because it ain't gonna be gorgeous, but it'll look damn good on a truck like that.
#340 to #339 - psychopsychedelic (10/09/2013) [-]
Yeah I wanna get it right. I painted the Lumina there beside it. It's good, but it definitely could use improvement.
User avatar #341 to #340 - chewythewolftwo (10/09/2013) [-]
Yeah, but you'll do well. I'd love to see it all buttoned up. Meanwhile.. I just found a 1990 Tacoma nearby for 500 with a bad timing chain.
It's Mary Kay pink.
Still thinking about it for a winter beater
User avatar #282 to #215 - chewythewolftwo (09/27/2013) [-]
Not much! Ms. Sasha the Galaxie jut came back from the shop yesterday, got major frame rust repair and now she's ready (I think) to go on the road! Brakes are a bit ***** (I think it might be rust, it's 4-wheel drum after all) and the gas tank needs to be dropped and cleaned, but those are minor things that I can address soon.
Hopefully gonna drop it a bit this winter and do a full exhaust system to make it **************** .jpg
User avatar #342 to #282 - psychopsychedelic (10/09/2013) [-]
I really like the Tacomas. A friend of mine has a 2010 one that is really cool.

A bad timing chain is a tricky fix though
User avatar #343 to #342 - chewythewolftwo (10/09/2013) [-]
Yeah, that's what deterred me a little. Found a '97 Hardbody for 800 with a bit of rot though, and I'm thinking about it. It's a standard and everything
User avatar #344 to #343 - psychopsychedelic (10/09/2013) [-]
Is it like mine or is it the little ones?
#346 to #345 - psychopsychedelic (10/09/2013) [-]
If that bed is too far gone you can probably get like ten new ones


It looks really nice though. You could get a flatbed on the back! I am gonna do that if the bed in mine gets too bad down the road. Once I finish the truck though I'm gonna start putting aside money to replace that engine. It's got a lot of miles on it.

Ohh that's a thought too, lol. I'm sure it's been done before. I don't want to get this truck that's supposed to be a beater and then end up dumping thousands in to it to make it cool though haha, because I totally would
User avatar #350 to #349 - psychopsychedelic (10/10/2013) [-]

User avatar #287 to #283 - chewythewolftwo (09/28/2013) [-]
I actually have a glasspack to slap on it for awhile, and then once I'm really ready, I have a set of Hooker headers and it's going to be one-off pipework all the way back, I've got a buddy who did a stellar exhaust on my Taurus (Yeah, he made a Taurus sound good, lol www.youtube.com/watch?v=WP3KuQRPHII And I need to update it because these mufflers have broken in and sound even better now) whose going to build something for me, it's just deciding the little things like where it'll end, IE Before the tires or after, etc, that we need to figure out.
#296 to #287 - psychopsychedelic (09/28/2013) [-]
I dig the sound of that Taurus to be honest. Very good low roar. But yeah I hear ya. My main problem is deciding what gets bought first. And that the interior is pretty nasty.
#305 to #296 - chewythewolftwo (09/29/2013) [-]
Try driving it everyday, it's intoxicating at times lol. Nothing like pulling out and having it drop a couple gears revving up to like 5k (It's all she's got lol, the SHO motor will go to 7k+ stock and possibly up to around 8,000 when cammed like I'm thinking of doing)

And I'm the same way with the Galaxie. My interior is almost as bad as yours.
This was above my headliner. And by this I mean that's about a quarter of the total mouse-house I pulled down, with many living residents, lol.
Also, get a wire brush or something and just scrub the piss out of the floor and then vacuum it and it will look a ton different, you'll be surprised.
User avatar #306 to #305 - psychopsychedelic (09/29/2013) [-]

User avatar #312 to #311 - chewythewolftwo (09/30/2013) [-]
Rad! I need to mess with the drums on my Galaxie and hopefully it'll be road worthy after that.
User avatar #313 to #312 - psychopsychedelic (09/30/2013) [-]
Man, A car that cool is always road worthy.

But without brake drums, it's only road worthy once...
User avatar #314 to #313 - chewythewolftwo (09/30/2013) [-]
Well I mean they're there, but a recent road excursion lead to the car pulling to the right upon braking terrifyingly hard and the drums looked like a forest fire of smoke when it came to a stop at my house, lol
User avatar #315 to #314 - psychopsychedelic (09/30/2013) [-]
Sounds pretty badass to me.

Fix em if you want to be a pussy! I kid I kid, get that done man. No need to go flying. Maybe you should replace the front brakes with discs. My Lumina is set up with two discs in the front and then drums in the back and it brakes wonderfully.
User avatar #316 to #315 - chewythewolftwo (10/01/2013) [-]
To a degree, lol. I need to get that glasspack on soon. It sounds kind of boring right now.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzBdxVZP7ec

I actually plan on doing 4 wheel disks -someday- when time and money are a thing I have.
My Taurus is 4-wheel disk and let me tell you that for a stock system they're pretty damn good. Might consider upping to some 13-inch Cobra Mustang rotors/Calipers some day down the road too, since it should be pushing around 350whp when the motor swap is done
User avatar #317 to #316 - psychopsychedelic (10/01/2013) [-]
It's got that crunchy growl to it now haha. You should deepen it, maybe even dual it out. That would be sweet.

My chevys stop funny, but I rarely have a problem with em. I too would like the four discs, but I don't have the wheels really. It might sound weird but I would want wheels that let you see the calipers if I were to get them. They're almost as much an eyepiece as they are practical. Know what I mean?
#318 to #317 - chewythewolftwo (10/01/2013) [-]
I've got a set of Hooker Headers actually, and a buddy (Who did my Taurus) whose going to one-off some pipework for me all the way back.

And yeah I know what you mean, I went from really ugly stock wheels to the pictured ones and even though they don't show it much, it's better than stock.
User avatar #319 to #318 - psychopsychedelic (10/01/2013) [-]
That's gotta be the sweetest Taurus around.

I really want to take a car and do all this work to it, but I just feel that my two aren't necessarily clamoring for that kind of attention. After I finish the Nissan I've debated about investing in something a bit more classy but I don't know. Moneys hard to come by, and automobiles sure love drinking it up.

I want to start a car from the frame up. But That's very optimistic given my limited access to tools and parts and especially money. If only my rockstar career would kick off..... haha
User avatar #320 to #319 - chewythewolftwo (10/02/2013) [-]
I'm putting the hookers on my Galaxie, the Taurus will be getting one-off bits to go with the catback and soon to be done y-pipe/race cat.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUCdrFD7abI Like this but better. (Not to mention audio quality isn't great but you get the idea)

After your truck, I say something like a Ford Falcon/Chevy Nova/ Dodge Dart. Old, get a 6-cyl car for decent MPG and overall cheapness, and still total badassery. I plan on doing so myself eventually, to dump on it's nuts and cruise EVERYWHERE regardless of weather, lol.
User avatar #322 to #320 - psychopsychedelic (10/02/2013) [-]
I said I Wanted a Pacer, but I really meant a Javelin. That's what I am considering but I really gotta finish the old Nissan first.

I drive a little 06 Evo..but its the ES model,and not the fancy AWD like I wanted..and I want to lightly upgrade it..

But I'm a Corvair guy. Something about the way that little Boxer 6 sounds and the way it rides just makes me a happy person inside.

And they can get 25-30mpg+ if you tune them right.

Its a shame the aftermarket parts has such a narrow selection,but it does allow for some cool modifications.

Personally,Im thinking of getting one and adding a Classic Air AC,and a Mustang power steering with a pair of small turbos.

Im going to get one. Ive been looking for a complete one to buy. But Im lookin for a 65/66 2 door.

Black cherry or red with blacked chrome,HID head lamps LED tail lamps,redo the interior to modern standards and all that jazz. Power it all up and m ake it my daily driver
User avatar #301 to #300 - psychopsychedelic (09/28/2013) [-]
Hell yeah man. I will request pics of when this day comes.

I dream of buying an old car and fixing it up to modern standards and making it my daily driver, but I'm still in college living off 5 bucks a week. I'm just happy my dad helps pay for the work I'm doing on the truck. He said he'd only pay for it if I learn how to do it to the other cars we have to and save him money in the long run.

I really shouldn't complain haha
User avatar #302 to #301 - thamuz (09/28/2013) [-]
Yeah I know that feeling.
I also have a mid 50s Apache. the first year of the dual headlamps. A straight 8 and the 3 on the tree,a real rare style as not that many were built with I8s and the 3 speed.

Im going to paint it probably red or the origional blue with a nice oak or walnut bed.
#303 to #302 - psychopsychedelic (09/28/2013) [-]
That sounds awesome dude. If you want to finish the wood, I'd use Tung Oil. It's what I use on the guitars I build and it's very durable.

Since this is the first time I'm really trying to restore a car, we started cheap. I bought this old Nissan for 500 and have been working on it for a while. I'm thinking either yellow, or some outrageously bright color.

oh wow, a post about manual transmissions, with people basing americans because auto's are so popular here. I've said it before and I'll say it again: most of us who actually like to drive, or are car people, like to drive stick. people who only use cars to get from point a to point b are people who have autos. I graduated high school last year, and i can say about 75% of my class knew how to drive stick. its not like stick is super rare here or something. My DD is a 2014 focus ST, so I drive stick too.

how's the ST? it's not going to be sold at my country, shattering my future dreams.
(Black or yellow, btw?)
#153 to #143 - karson (09/27/2013) [-]
I'm not going to lie to you. I went to the ford dealership to look at their 5.0 mustangs. the 5.0 is fast without a doubt, but it still felt as if it was missing something. somehow the ST was brought up, and I'd never heard of it before. well I got to test drive a tangerine scream (the yellow the ST is famous for) and I fell instantly in love with the car. while I liked the color, it was a little to flashy, and even on the test drive it caught a policeman's eye too well, which I didn't like. but they had an "Oxford White" st3 on the lot as well, that wasn't being used as a test car, so it had about 7 miles on it while the yellow one had about 100ish. I ended up leaving that day with the white one, and do not regret my decision at all. I absolutely LOVE my car.
User avatar #159 to #153 - JoshOwnsAll (09/27/2013) [-]
my focus is oxford white as well. I didn't like white cars at first, but my used focus was such a great deal, that I couldn't say no. Now, I wouldn't change my White knight look for anything in the world. black might be badass, but white? white is badass in its purest form.
#166 to #159 - karson (09/27/2013) [-]
yeah, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet. My st3 was kinda pricey for a focus, but it's top of the line, all black leather recaro seats, nav screen, etc. etc. but I'm not a fan of the stock rims. I want some rays volks te37's (pictured) but they're way too expensive, so I think I'm going to get some volks look alikes, in bronze, I think. I was going to get black rims, but that is just extremely overdone by everyone, so I decided against it. I plan on getting a ford racing exhaust, ford racing cold air intake, cobb accessport v3 tuner, cobb catless downpipe, cobb fmic, and then I think I'll be pretty satisfied and stop modding it.
#180 to #166 - JoshOwnsAll (09/27/2013) [-]
that would look great. in chile all non-stock rims are... frowned upon, socially. the only cars you see with custom rims are crap-brown toyota tercels, nissan V12 and taxis. every guy would love to change his rims, but your car (no matter what model) gets this picture's look, and nobody wants to fall that low.

ricers? is that a thing, or you misspelled racers?
User avatar #207 to #203 - karson (09/27/2013) [-]
no, thats actually a big thing here. ricers, referring to "rice" which is what a lot of jdm cars are called, typically, honda civics, mitsubishi eclipses, and stuff like that, ricers drive like assholes, and they put a bunch of cheap crap to try and make their cars looks faster, like wings, bodykits, a loud annoying exhaust, and rims, while not doing anything to enhance the performance of their car. then they drive like they are the fastest things on the road, when in reality most soccermom suv's would beat them. as urbandictionary put it:
A person who makes unecessary modifications to their most often import car (hence the term "rice") to make it (mostly make it look) faster. The most common modifications are (but not limited to):

- Huge exhaust that serves no purpose but to make the car louder
- Large spoiler on the back that looks like something Boeing made for the 747
- Lots of after-market company stickers they don't have parts from, but must be cool
- Expensive rims that usually cost more than the car itself
- Bodykit to make the car appear lower, usually accented with chicken wire
- Clear tail lights and corner signals
- A "performace intake"- a tube that feeds cold air to their engine usually located in areas of excessive heat (behind or on top of the engine)
- Most of these riced cars (a.k.a. rice rockets or rice burners) are imports; Honda Civics, Accords, Integras, CRXs, RSXs, Del Sols Mitsubishi Eclipses, Lancers, Subaru Imprezas,
