the next step to getting right with the galaxie is taking her on a 60 mile road trip along the back roads of wisconsin to get a feel for how she’ll perform on longer road trips.
driving down past all the pretty horses near odin avenue i noticed a nice view out the window of some amish “oat shocks” and the organic valley wind turbines and was reminded that 7 years ago i hatched a plan for a occasional series, “scenes from the galaxie”, while driving along the back roads of wisconsin to the upper peninsula of michigan.
i think it’s still a good idea!
i’m uh, torn, about fixing the tears in the upholstery. some might think they look shabby, but they remind of friendly lines of character on an aging, familiar face.
and yes, the galaxie sure does enjoy stretching out on country roads but you do really have to respect how she prefers handling curves 😉
