Lincoln's first BEV is expected to be a crossover coming in 2022 (for the 2023 model year) and may carry the model name "Mark E."

Re: Ten years ago this month...

That describes about everybody over 70. The Town Car died because its target market died. It could have evolved, but it didn't. As I recall, the average age of a retail Town Car buyer in 1990 was around 60, by 2000 it was near 70 and by the end of the Town Car's run it was mid-70s. I had no problem...

Re: Ten years ago this month...

The platform lasted far longer than it was ever expected to do. That's for sure. Neither the Town Car nor Fleetwood Brougham were expected to go beyond 1984-85 or so (in those forms) but gas prices fell and the models were kept in production. Cadillac ended up having much better success with FWD mo...

Re: Ten years ago this month...

Part of the reason sales plummeted is because Ford stoped advertising them. Just like the other Panthers. But at least they were constantly being improved over the years. The changes in 2003 were a big one, then the better gauges with the tach. Excluding an occasional up year here and there (most n...

Re: Ten years ago this month...

A terrific platform. I've had multiple Town Cars through the years. My current 2007 Signature Limited with 61k on it is pulling daily driver duties. Sadly, it is getting tough to find these cars in really nice condition with low miles. I had to travel twelve hours to get my current '07. I'll be dam...

Re: Ten years ago this month...

I wanted to buy another personal luxury ride. But Lincoln stopped building that kind of car with the 1998 Mark VIII So I bought one of the last Lincoln Navigators with a V8. I wanted a second gen Limited and flew to Florida to pick it up and drove it to Phoenix. Worse than a six banger is what is c...

Ten years ago this month...

...the last Lincoln Town Car rolled off the assembly line (August 29, 2011 to be exact). It was the end of a 30+ year run (as a model). At that time, Lincoln offered three sedans and three crossovers/SUVs but is now exclusively a crossover/SUV brand...although a new sedan (Zephyr) may be in the work...

Re: 1982 Continental Signature Series at auction

Although both 4-door sedans and sharing similar platforms (the Imperial on a stretched/extended wheelbase Y-body version vs. the Dynasty's C-body), they didn't really share any body panels. The 1981-83 Imperial shared more with the Cordoba/Mirada than the 1990-93 did with the Dynasty. 1990Imperial.j...

Re: 1982 Continental Signature Series at auction

IEven Chrysler's first failed attempt to revive Imperial looked better (never mind the second attempt, just a gussied-up Dynasty). If you're going to call the 1990-93 Chrysler Imperial a gussied up Dynasty, you might as well call the 1981-83 Imperial a gussied up Mirada. Chrysler/Iacocca may have b...

Re: 1982 Continental Signature Series at auction

There certainly was and is a love/hate reaction to styling of both the bustle-back Continental and Seville. I liked and still like both. Although the bustle-back Continental sold better than the Versailles, it didn't sell nearly as well as the next generation (1988-94) Continental.
