The Buick Regal was also my first car, in which I purchased myself with no help. The other cars I stated that I own are actually my dads, but I get free use out of them whenever I want and I'm an only child, so one day I will have them in my name. Yes I was fibbing a bit about whose they are, but who cares? I still get to drive them as if they are currently mine...
And yes the Lincoln Mark 8 with 225/60r16 tires go to 100km/hr in first gear, with 215/60r16s they go to 92km/hr in first. Type 93 Lincoln Mark VIII 0 to 60 into the youtube search bar; is a video proof enough?

Update: I crashed it on December 11th, search the video mark viii crash on Youtube for the video. I will fix it though, insurance gave me 3500 for it, but I bought it back for 500, so I can upgrade it with the extra 2k.

Nice having a dad that lets you borrow some neat cars. Nothing like father, son or daughter in a couple of different family cars at a show. Good luck!

Maybe dear old dad wasn't so generous about letting sonnyboy drive his cars after he crashed his while doing 100 km/h in first gear?

My dad drove his dad's cars and I did likewise. Also we all got involved in restorations, show prep etc. at a young age. Every family is different. I wrecked one myself in my twenties on a slick back road. And rolled the car. Taught me and never happened since. Felt terrible to total a beautiful car. If you want to be a self or stingy in life it isn't a solution. If it happens twice, I see where you are coming from. Then you drive your own. I would still assist in building it up however.
