Lincoln What a luxury car used to be
Hybrids, little frisky V-6 engines, and front wheel drive suck. Detroit has lost their way a long time ago on what a real luxury car is and should be. Nothing today rides, or even compares to the cars Ford Motor Company produced under the Lincoln brand, say for the stand alone survivor, the Town Car, which is nothing to what it used to be. Cadillac, and Chrysler have nothing to offer say for reworked front drive basic transportation and a couple rear drive, cheap engineered, basic drivers. Sit back and enjoy some history as it parades across your screen. Thank You for watching.

This gave it powertrain and suspension commonality with the Mercury Grand Marquis and the Ford LTD Crown Victoria (later the Crown Victoria). This design made them durable even in the rough conditions taxi and livery cars are subjected to, and easy and cheap to repair when they did suffer damage.[3] Town Cars are typically operated in commercial service for at least 400,000 miles.[3] Its large dimensions made it the largest car in production in North America. From 1997 to 2011, the Town Car was the longest car (but not the heaviest) built in the Western Hemisphere, measuring nearly 18 feet (5.49 m) in length for a standard Town Car and 18.5 feet (5.64 m) for an L Edition.[4 Lincoln is also believed to be preparing a true Town Car successor on a rear-wheel drive platform to rival the Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7-series The Town Car underwent a minor exterior facelift for the 1995 model year. Changes to the exterior included smaller, clear headlights as well as additional running lights in the rear. Larger door mirrors were body-colored (formerly chrome), and were moved slightly forward on the door itself. Updated bumpers front and rear, new body side moldings, and the deletion of the small fixed window in the rear doors completed the exterior changes. The antenna was removed from the outside of the car and integrated into the rear window.[16] 1995 also saw the introduction of a new steering wheel, which was used in all Panther-based sedans from 1998 to 2004.[16] In addition to the cruise control buttons,. Also introduced in 1995 was a new digital dash layout (replacing the unit used since 1993) that featured a more italicized look to the readouts, while the exterior temperature readout moved from the dash cluster to the climate control panel. A "miles to go" trip computer feature was added. Dual power recliners with lumbar support—as well as a three-position driver's seat and mirror memory function became standard (formerly optional) on Signature Series which could be assigned to the keyless entry remotes as well as the up to four personal keyless entry codes. Heated seats were a new option, and door panel switches now featured (slight) illumination from a lamp located below the interior door handle. Power door lock switches were back-lit, and were mounted high up on the driver and passenger door panels. The fuel door release (previously mounted in the center dash panel) and trunk release button moved from inside the glove compartment to the lower driver's side door panel. Similar to the previous year, Signature and Cartier models featured dual clamshell storage armrests up front with cassette storage, coin holder, and an optional Cell phone. The 1997 Cartier models held dual cup holders in the rear center armrest, and offered lighted vanity mirrors in the headliner for the two outboard rear seating positions. With the demise of the Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham after 1996, the Town Car became the last of its kind: the last American full-size, rear-wheel drive luxury car. The demise of the Fleetwood also made the Town Car the largest mass-produced car available in North America. I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor)

1976 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL - ONE OF THE LAST DINOSAURS
Okay, so this is a gas guzzling 4 door sedan dinosaur but it's mine and I like it. I am the second owner of this car and it is in totally original unrestored condition. Let me tell you about this boat. It has the reputable 460 cu. in. engine with 70,000 miles and the curb weight is about 5,073 lbs. The ride of this Town Car is magnificent! It has the smoothest ride I have ever experienced in a luxury car and I have ridden or have driven Cadillacs, Mercedes, Buicks, Oldsmobiles, etc., and this car absolutely floats. AND quiet! I have mistakenly tried to restart the car without looking at an idiot light thinking that the engine had died, and no, it was still running, I just couldn't hear it. This Lincoln does not have all of the options available but does have an automatic tranny, power steering, seats, windows, antenna, door locks, trunk release, A/C, climate control thermometer, Cartier clock - still works, map light, wire wheel covers, fender skirts, double pinstripe, vinyl padded roof, and dual remote mirrors. The only item not factory is the AM/FM tape player of which I have yet to install my factory unit. The interior is flawless finished in a mustard color velour and vinyl. The carpeting is in finished in a "shag" type of pile which was popular in the seventies both in cars and in homes. The trunk is huge and the original spare is present. During the video tour notice under the hood the two black "coffee can" vacuum pumps for the hidden headlights which still operate. I taped this car from a distance to show off the side view and the fact that this car is over 19 1/2 feet in length. I have won numerous trophies at car shows. So yes, this car is heavy, powerful, and a gas guzzler getting 12mpg in the city and at best 17 mpg on the highway. Cars of the 70's were commonly gas hogs until the great gas squeeze due to the Yom Kippur War in the middle east. At that point, U.S. car makers scrambled to reduce the size and bulk of cars making a lot of downsized models look unproportionate and an incomplete design. Lately though, car collectors are looking twice at seventies cars though and four door sedans in particular as being more appreciated and collectible. Perhaps this video will reevaluate your own feelings for old dinosaurs. ( Here's a hint for you car enthusists that want to clean up the engine compartment........Spray WD-40 on a COLD engine. Don't wipe, just let it drip off the grime and do it in the street - not your driveway so as not to stain. WD will, upon several applications, melt the grime away without leaving a residue like engine cleaners do but does leave a sheen on rubber and plastic. You can wipe off excess WD with a cloth because it really cleans surfaces. Again, since WD is flammable, only use on a stone COLD, I repeat - COLD engine compartment. )





My Car Collection 1979 Lincoln Continental Collector's Series
This Lincoln Continental is one of the less driven cars in my car collection it has no 12k miles Originals it has never been restored or something like that, it works absoulutely everything ,power windows,powered locks, it has a working MAGAZINE, its really in a mint condition as you can see it, it runs a V8 Ford 400ci (6.6lt) . The 1979 Collector's Series Mark V was equipped essentially the same as the Diamond Jubilee Edition of 1978; virtually every Lincoln luxury was provided as standard equipment on these cars. Offered in just two colors initially, Midnight Blue Moondust Metallic and White, two additional colors, Light Silver Moondust Metallic and Crystal Blue Moondust Metallic, were offered later in the year.The "Collector's Series" option almost doubled the retail price of the standard Continental Mark V to almost $22,000 US dollars, The Mark V version truly was limited with production of just 5,159 cars.

1936 Cadillac V-16 Seven-Passenger Limousine Bullet Proof Barn Find! Time Capsule so cool! Gangster?
https://www.youtube.com/user/MustangConnection1 Far from a Mustang but way too cool not to post. 1936 Cadillac V-16 Seven-Passenger Limousine Bullet Proof Barn Find! Time Capsule soo cool! Series 60. 452-cid, 185-hp OHV V-16 engine, three-speed manual transmission Special build limo with inch thick glass and carefully drilled gun ports in front, side and back windows In deteriorated condition and ready for a complete full restoration Chassis no. 5100136 Body Style 6075 Body no. 356 Series 60. 452-cid, 185-hp OHV V-16 engine, three-speed manual transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel vacuum-assisted mechanical drum brakes. Wheelbase: 154-inches. At first glance, this car looks like an armored limousine, with inch-thick glass and carefully-drilled gun ports. On closer examination, however, it gets more and more curious. The Cadillac build records call it "Fltwd Limo," body style 6275, number 356, and indicate it was ordered by the Chicago branch on February 21, 1935. Painted Thessalon Green, it had black leather in the front compartment and Wiese brown vogue weave broadcloth in the rear. Fitted with six wire wheels, two of them in fender wells, it had a radio in the rear compartment and a flexible steering wheel. There is a further notation about "Special Fleetwood Body Order 310," the details of which are lost to history. The online Cadillac Data Base, a meticulous compilation by historian Yann Saunders, gives production figures for Style 6275 as nine in 1934 and just seven in 1935, exclusive of those given suffixes as sedans, formal limousines or limousines with increased headroom. The bodies were the same as the flat-windshield limousine Style 6075, whose Fisher body tags they sometimes wore.
