Hot Rod Lincoln

This is the new to me 79 Lincoln Mark V, Bill Blass edition. My winter car.

I saw the segment on the food channel where you sold your car to help finance the Royale. That must've hurt. Glad to see that you're replacing it a sweeeeeet ride.

Perhaps one of the fewest cars on the road today that actually gets worse gas mileage than a Hummer? ;)

The Cadillac got, er, between 6-10 mpg with the 500 cid engine, but this Lincoln gets 16.2 on the highway with the 400. It is like I am driving a Geo. Good thing gas is still relatively cheap and I don't drive that far.

Yeah, people give me crap because of my Barracuda. Just because it's an old car they think it's a gas hog, but it's got a very durable and efficient Slant 6, and actually gets around 18-20 MPG, which is comparable to what our Honda Element gets in the city.
