CC Outtake: Fullsize Ford Fest


This leafy residential setting is where Eric Clem caught these two true-blue Ford sedans, built approximately twenty years apart.  The lighter blue Galaxie appears to be a ’66, while the Crown Vic is harder to determine, but seems to be from between 1982 and 1987.

Both cars led their low-priced domestic competition when it came to softness and isolation and both have a strong following now.  My choice would definitely be the earlier car, but there are some dogged Panther Platform devotees here at CC who would prefer the car parked in front.


If this tag is to be believed, this car hasn’t moved much over about eighteen years.  Which of these would you choose?
