so an update, i ordered an brand new sportline steering wheel thats on its way from Sweden (love ebay) also picked up a really minty 1994 E series original sale brochure (ebay again), that just arrived today. I had the car up on the rack yesterday just to check to see if there are any needs, couple of minor oil leaks, and a couple of busted exhaust rubber hangers, but not much else. The car rides very hard on the rear so a couple of accumulators are on the way to me, hopefully that will soften up the ride. Next on the list will be a new bluetooth ICE system, probably a pioneer, and maybe add a 8" subwoofer and a small amp to boost the low end, the door and shelf speakers sound great so no changes required.

Welcome Global.
Nice collection.... is the 64 Galaxy a 429 by any chance? Just a FYI, when it comes to changing the exhaust hanger, use the "good" ones with the metal chain embedded in the rubber. You'll never have to do them again.

Kind Regards,

Ron
