I’m not one to shout and scream about saving all of those horrible malaise era cars…but I gotta say that this next one hit me like one of those commercials where people show video montages of poor and neglected animals/kids (why aren’t you helping them instead of video taping their misery..?). Somebody has to save this old Lincoln from the snowy crashes and rust-filled future it has ahead of it in the Commonweath of Pennsyltucky. This gold moonroof optioned beast needs a garage and/or a temperate climate to survive into the 22nd Century. Find this 1977 Lincoln Mark V offered for $6,500 in Quakertown, PA via craigslist.

It is hard to argue with the dollar per pound proposition of a used classic– particularly when the car is clean and in great condition. It isn’t that I’ve got anything specifically against new cars, it is just that used cars offer so much more per dollar. Just look at this next thing. You can’t find a car half as cool at a new car dealer for ten times the price. And while it might not conform to the latest fuel economy standards or offer apple car play…ehhh…who cares, a real pimp don’t need Waze or Google Maps telling them where to go anyway.

There are oodles of new cars for sale in the $25k range at your local Honordoytamotors dealership, and they come stock full of gadgets and gizmos; but this next car has a few things that they won’t come with. They won’t come with a 600 horsepower supercharged V8. Nor a 5 speed manual mated to […]
The Lincoln Mark VII 1986-1992 (originally called the Continental Mark VII from 1984-1985) rode on the Fox platform shared with the Mustang, Thunderbird, and Cougar. It was powered by Ford’s legendary 5.0 V8…but saddled with a basic 4-speed slushbox but this next owner has fixed that with a few parts from a used Mustang. Find […]
Lincoln first released their attempt at the luxury pickup in 2002 with the Blackwood…which didn’t sell many (3300 according to interweb sources) and was canceled within 15 months of launch. The product planners at Lincoln were still convinced they could sell a gussied up F-150..and in 2005 they released the Mark LT…which then lasted till […]
I’ve seen lots of strange things in craigslist adverts. Dirty thumbs and oily rags obscure license plates for some unknown reason on a regular basis…and there is a certain subset of the population who can only find time to take pics of their car at the gas station at night (vampires?)..but this next car is […]
This is all the money (and then some) for a ’93 Lincoln Town Car…but if you are in the market for something strange from the 90s with super low miles…you don’t have many choices. But the only problem with this car is that you can’t drive it. The second the odo turns into quintuple digits, […]
The late 70s Continental was never a sporty car. It was marked by Lincoln as a personal luxury coupe with an emphasis on the luxury. It wasn’t Lincoln’s fault that the fuel crisis and emissions laws made the Continental barely produce 200 horsepower from its massive 460 cubic inch V8…but this next car has been […]
The 3rd and final generation of the Lincoln Town Car was built from 1998 through 2011 on a chassis shared with the Ford Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis/Marauder, and Hongqi Qijian. Out of the million Town Cars built in this generation, a few were of the plus “long wheelbase” version that added 6 inches of rear […]
I don’t know how often you guys drive new cars, but I’m always impressed at the way the new large vehicles drive — they don’t have the ponderous heft that 6000 lb trucks had from a few years ago…maybe its modern technology, maybe its some magic, but it is nice…not nice enough to justify the […]
