Ahoy, mateys! Hop aboard the SS Galaxie and sail the seven seas! Yarr, I don’t know what the person who did this was thinking, but I guess I would enjoy pontoon boat ownership too. For what it is, that crazy continental kit/bumper extension is nicely finished, but the last thing this car needs is more rear overhang. Instead, it needs a fair bit of addition by subtraction – toss everything past the tail lights, the whitewalls, the hokey wheel covers, and the fender skirts, lose a few inches off the ride height, and you’d have a pretty great coke-bottle-cruiser for under $10k. Or, you know, swap out the steering wheel for a tiller and start wearing shirts with epaulets.
