A Galaxie of Holiday Cheer!

A Galaxie of Holiday Cheer!

Somehow I forgot to post this last month and even though it’s a tad late I couldn’t pass up on Lino Martins’ Christmas Galaxie

You may remember a bike featuring Santa Claus and Natasha, his sexy Russian mail order bride, from last Christmas. Well this year they’ve acquired a new custom ride; a 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 convertible. Close the hood and red lights will illuminate the engine compartment and can be seen through the unique hood window. A spacious trunk and back seat can be loaded with holiday gifts (or mischievous elves) and gold grille and rims, plus a dark red and dark green color configuration makes this Galaxie Christmasy, yet more sophisticated than your usual bright holiday colors. A classic white interior ties the whole Christmas theme together. The top can be used when transporting holiday cheer in the dead of winter…or it can come off when bringing toys to all the good boys and girls living in warmer climates. Either way, this is one classy cool custom ride! This was built for the Galaxie of Possibilities challenge over at LUGNuts.

Both the car and the Galaxie of Possibilities challenge were really clever. The car for its simply elegant color scheme and pure awesomeness, the challenge because LUGNuters were restricted to only one type of car — a ’66 Ford Galaxie.

My favorite other entry was Peter Blackert’s Ford Galaxie 1966 Convertible (Modified)

I love the use of the Bionicle blue flame element.

And, if you are interested in it, the 27th Build Challenge…Blockbuster Mission! is currently going on at LUGNuts on Flickr right now. Trust me, its worth a read even if you don’t build cars. 😉
