Q: When and how did you acquire the car?
LOU TOMMASELLI: I got the car in 1998. My wife and I purchased it at a car show in Charlotte.
Q: Tell us about your car (specs, restoration, etc.).
LT: When I originally got the car, it was red with a vinyl top. In 2011, I decided to completely change it to look like the Galaxie I bought brand new when I was 18 years old. I just finished the restoration in April.
Q: Do you have a fun or interesting story about the car?
LT: Restoring it was a lot of fun for me. I have been messing around with mechanics since I was a kid.
Q: Why do you love the car?
LT: I love the style. I think it’s one of the prettiest Fords ever.
Car Year/Make/Model: 1964 Ford Galaxie 500XL
