"I didn't play sports as a kid," says Andrew Licktieg of Louisville, Kentucky, "I restored my Galaxie." The 21-year-old electrician (Local 369) says he did all the work himself, starting when he was 12. Andrew's '66 Ford Galaxie 500XL won the Ford Muscle Classic category, and has a .040-over 390 FE with stock heads, 10.5:1 compression, a Holley 650, and a four-speed Top Loader with a Centerforce clutch. The big Ford is just for cruising and shows, but Andrew also loves to watch the NMCA's drag action.
