My son is making me a scale model of my 1973 coupe

If it is Lincoln-related and doesn't seem to fall in the other categories or you just can't figure out where to put it, put it here!

It really is amazing! I now have scale models of three of my classics.

Whoa...that Impala model's a four-door?? You just don't find model cars with four doors! That's one thing I brag about with my model-car collection: I have more 4-door cars than 2-door cars, and the 2-door models are of cars that were built only as 2-doors (well, except for the Edsel Pacer I have, but it is what it is).

But I digress. As a prominent Doctor would say, FANTASTIC!!

:oops: Oops. Sorry, Jon. Still a rarity, though; I considered myself lucky to come across a model of a 1960 Fleetwood.

I think the model he put together is absolutely amazing. I know he put a lot of time into it figuring out parts that he could adapt to make the model look like the actual car as they never made a model of this car. It gave me a chance to give my Lincoln a good run and I have to say it ran flawlessly, like new.
