This is the first year of the "regular fuel" engines, so the compression
ratio is 8.5:1 (down from 10.5:1 from 1970). I go over some details about
the car in this video, perform a cold start, and a short drive to
demonstrate the unique speedometer. More videos about this car to come as
maintenance needs arise. Footage shot on 2/18/2012 using a Sony Handycam
model DCR-TRV27. There is a pause at 15:03, but keep watching. The video

2001 Lincoln Continental Straight Pipes
Here's a picture of the straight pipe set up.
Only cost $27 to do. Bought straight pipe and clamps from a local muffler
shop. Dd the labor ourselves at home. Sounds way better in person, video
just does not do justice. Produces a great sound while going down the road.
Supposedly adds some horsepower.
