1979 Lincoln Continental Collector Series 400 cubic inch from North America
Gorgeous luxury yacht
Nothing. So far, nothing has gone wrong with the car.
Where do I start? The car is a dream come true, it has only 17,800 miles on it! An older gentleman let it go for only $9,000 (to me of course).
For basic spring/shock suspension... the car rides wonderfully, and it's very quiet, you don't hear the engine.
Smooth as silk where shifting is concerned.
It is midnight blue inside and out. Those leather seats are more comfortable than my living room couch! Haha.
This Lincoln is very easy to drive, despite a 127 inch wheelbase and being 233 inches long. I drive it everywhere around town, and turn many heads.
Scary enough, the gas mileage isn't THAT bad. I got about 17 on the highway, and 13 in town. Hey, many large SUVs don't even get that!
I recommend that if you can get your hands on something like this... GO FOR IT! It's one of the most beautiful cars I have ever laid eyes on, and I'm only 21... but you can be any age to appreciate something like this. All of those luxury cars were true "works of art", manufacturers took great pride in them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I completely agree, these cars are works of art. I have had a few classic cars myself and I love these old land yachts.
Like you said, gas mileage is not so bad if you compare it to a big pickup, SUV, or even a minivan.
It is so much more enjoyable to drive a classic than the generic gray plastic junk that is on the road today.
The new cars are pretty much made to be disposable.
An older car like this has soul, character and history.
Enjoy your classic!
