1978 Lincoln Continental town car from North America
Best car I've owned
My biggest complaint is that car tends to overheat on hot days in NC. Had the therm replaced, found out not to fill the radiator completely full. There is evidence that the car may have a replaced radiator. Always check after a few long drives. The cool Cartier clock does not work (most I hear don't)
The 1978 Lincoln Continental has really grown on me. My wife and I are small car people, so when we first came across the car at auction, we were only half serious about pursuing it. We took a test drive and my wow, what a smooth ride and what a boss feeling you get with it. Floats over the pavement. A mechanic we know says it is basically a truck with a car body. We put a hitch on it, put a trailer on the back and drove it from Colorado to our new home in North Carolina.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Don't complain about gas mileage. The majority of people who list reviews on this website do not own their car, they make payments with a hope of one day owning the car. I own my Lincoln, I put gas in it regularly, it looks new, and it cost 2000 dollars. It is cheap to insure, and maintenance is a breeze. What's the problem getting 12mpg, when the car was cheap enough to pay cash? I still come out on top...yeah...I could have bought a 10000 dollar Honda and still be making payments on it. But once I have put 8000 dollars worth of gasoline into the Lincoln, then I'll start complaining, until then I WILL be comfortable and I WILL ride in style.

If he replaces the crummy original carb, his fuel-economy numbers will almost double.
