Take a 95-97 Town Car Cartier or a 94-96 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham and you will have a real car.
93 Fleetwood didn't have the Corvette engine. I think if my memory serves me, the fleetwood is 224-inches long, which is about 6-inches longer then the Town Car.
I think I'd get the Town Car because of the steering wheel controls.
The Fleetwood is a heavy 4447-lbs of safety while the town car is around 4200-lbs.
Best cars ever built..

Hi, I've got a 1995 Lincoln town-car that been modified to protect you. It has armored and bulletproof windows and body. I got the car new with only 987 miles on the dash, and this has been a great car to me and my girlfriend.

I purchased a 1996 Town Car 75th Anniversary Edition from my father. Other than the usual problems, the major one was the intake manifold. They were plastic - and prone to cracking behind the alternator. They were junk! The replacement has cast metal, which should last for years. I changed it myself with little problems. The car rides like on a cloud! If the rear end air springs go bad, DO NOT put regular springs on it! They will eliminate the gentle ride!
Keep up on your maintenance! The fuel economy is 19-21 mpg, with the A/C on - I never have the windows down.
JBL Audio sounds great! If the factory subwoofer blows up like mine did, I put a Kicker 6 1/2" sub back in its box, & for $60 it will thump the car!

In most cases when the air springs are swapped for regular springs, it makes no difference in the ride quality. The main purpose of the air springs is to keep the rear of the car level when driving on uneven surfaces, or hauling passengers in the back seat. I myself own a 96 with the air springs, but yet have driven others that were converted, and can't even tell the difference.

I think that the 90s Fleetwood Broughams are worthy alternatives. They're RWD, built well, and give fine MPG.
