parking my 1965 lincoln continental with glasspacks
Unless you want to hear it start, fast forward to 1:20. This is me, in I
think about 2002, parking my 1965 Lincoln Continental (ALL original minus
the glasspacks) next to my tiny little 1994 Subaru Justy (semi-intentional
burnout hehe). 430ci engine with 10.1:1 compression ratio. 2.5" pipes from
the Exhaust manifolds to glass packs,
and nothing in between :)
To all the upvotes - thank you all :) you're awesome :)
Update: Just sold it last weekend (end of Sept 2014). Heartbreaking, but I
absolutely could not have hoped for a better home for it. Thanks again
guys, and I'm glad there (narrowly) ended up being no fatalities getting it
on that trailer :D
Best Car Chase EVER
From the comedy 'Short Time' with Dabney Coleman, Matt Frewer and Teri
Garr. Overall, considering all factors, I find this the best car chase
scene ever filmed.
NOTE: Coleman's car here is NOT a Diplomat. The grille in this red car says
Plymouth. As the chase was filmed in Canada where the Plymouth Gran Fury
was sold as the 'Caravelle' from 1978-1982, and as the 'Caravelle Salon'
from 1983-89, it might be a Caravelle. But the fender emblems were removed,
so we can't say for certain that it isn't a US-market Gran Fury.

1978 Lincoln Continental MK5
Here is one of the finest MK5's you'll see on the road today! This one is
a Bill Blass Edition that came with some very luxurious detailing! It's
powered by a 460ci V8 and a C6 3 speed automatic transmission. It's also
equipped with power steering, 4 wheel power disc brakes, A/C, hide-away
headlights, and sits on a set of turbine-styled cast aluminum wheels with
Firestone white wall tires! Aside from the Bill Blass indication on the
rear opera windows, the interior has Chamois leather upholstery, Cartier
instruments, power windows, power sunroof, power seats, an AM/FM 8 track
player (that works!), remote mirror, and over head lighting! Overall, the
interior of this '78 Lincoln is luxurious even by today's standards. The
Midnight Cordovan painted body is super straight, VERY shiny, and the
beautiful chrome accents it nicely! The MK5 runs exceptionally well and
shows very little wear for it's age! All in all, this thing is like driving
a leather couch with doors! You'd be hard pressed to find a nicer one!
