if only the M had 590 hp. looks similar, but what's with the 427, it's a V10, not a V8. in the paper it says that vp of design J Mays noted ford used to sell a million galaxie sedans a year in the 60s, but it is a market they gave up. i thought they stopped making the big sedans due to emissions regulations in 70's and gas prices.

I love this paragraph:“[The 427 is] something you could put next to a German car, an English car, a Japanese car and say, ‘Okay, I know where that’s coming from, that’s American.’ And secondly, good American designs for me have an incredible pureness about them. Quite simply, some of the best car design that’s ever been done has come from America.

Hmmmm. I like the looks of it, but NO car looks good sitting by the side of the road with the hood up.

I doubt VERY seriously that it'll see the light of day with that many horsies.

I'll keep slobbering over the M.
