YAK Car Pic of the Day

'65 Ford Galaxie 500/XL, Ishua, N.Y.

Looking through the YAK files today, I see I took this photo almost three years ago. How time flies! This 1965 Ford Galaxie 500/XL  is similar to a Galaxie 500 my Dad had, but his was a lighter shade of blue. You know that blue, the one that on so many cars over the years faded and the primer showed through. Yuck. It did have the 352 CID Thunderbird V-8 with a four-barrel and dual exhausts though. That was cool. It’s the car I took (and passed) my road test in, back in the day. This blue/white/black(?) example I used to pass every morning in Ishua, on my way to Olean. I wonder if it’s still there?
