Welcome back to another WWYDWT! Today’s candidate is a 1969 Continental listed on craigslist for $1200. Bodywork seems in respectable condition, but the venerable 460 is siezed.
Reader, I will admit that I was skeptical when I first started watching this video. I assumed a local news station was just using a gimmicky new technique to jazz up a ho-hum story. I was wrong. I was so wrong.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to select three of the least reliable cars (or trucks) in the US.
It took me a minute to realize what I was looking at, it’s a lot smaller than I thought. The door handles are pretty cool, and the back end looks good. Overall I like it, but I really expected Lincoln’s flagship sedan to be larger than a 5 Series. It hardly looked that big even.
In my personal opinion, options packages (including mandatory car color options) are ruining a big part of the fun of cars. Pictured above is an unrestored 1971 Dodge W100 Adventurer. This truck was ordered in Plum Crazy Purple and was painted as such at the factory. Back then, you had a list of individual options,…
New Lincoln Continental. Saw one the other day while driving with my friend that works for Ford. His thoughts, “Yea, we aren’t doing a very good job of trying to sell that car are we?”
Bring back the greyhound hood ornament please. K thanks bye.
Lincoln had some cool looking photos in the late 50's.

MKC is a great example of different suspension, it also doesn’t share a single bit of sheet metal with an Escape, it’s a different…
If so here is a rather daper 5 door Lincoln Model K
Monday thru Friday from 8AM to 5PM. Why? I might’ve gotten a job as a courtesy driver and light maintence person at my local Lincoln dealer! I had an interview yesterday, and he was really interested in me. I was there for about an hour and a half, he showed me around the whole place and introduced me to everyone. As…
Listen to me Opponauts! Today is a day for the history books! I will embark on a journey of reaching new frontiers never before seen in DIY-Vehicle-Repair-dom in an attempt to fix my Mark VIII’s “leaky airride”(TM) suspension.
Too bad modern cars are not two toned like this beautiful Lincoln Capri.
It’s that time of the week again (or time of the month, these things happen every week but I usually keep it to a monthly thing), time to bring up the Cars and Coffee photos. I suffered through sweltering 95+ degree weather in a black Corvette shirt, wiping sweat from my brow every five seconds to bring you the best…
