Late Sunday afternoon drive in the scrub, following a farm boundary fence.

Yay for much reduced Covid restrictions. Slowly getting back to the new normal. Saw this this arvo. Not too many of these beasts around I'd hazard a guess. 720HP of bent 8 shoving just under 1000kg down the road.

This pulled into the car park as we were readying to leave this afternoon.

I spoke to the couple as they got out and asked how long they'd had it.
The chap replied "Only a few weeks; it was a present for my 80th Birthday".

Who's a lucky boy then! :eek-31:

looks like it's been in some DIY makeover show! Suppose it's to someone's taste...
I think you might be underselling the "prowess" of the Chrysler company design department at that time. This things looks pretty close to stock to me.

Does this mean we should create a separate Fugly Cars thread?

I got to join a seething crowd of avid car show-goers in seeing a rarely-open private car collection, which included more Lincolns than you could poke a stick at, plus others, and a side Show & Shine of visitors' classic cars. There were so many people, which I find very unsettling these days, and I certainly didn't do my best work. This was a fundraiser for a children's hospital, and apparently raised over $30,000!

That's an awesome selection of American classics.
You've captured them very nicely Melanie
Think the second one would be nice at home :)
Did you get clucky? I think I'd want to tuck one or more under the roof at home.

You're too kind, Richard, but thanks for the encouragement. The Lincolns were outrageous, and beautifully curated, but that Eldorado was my favourite.

I would like to point out that technically, the first image is not a Lincoln, the mk 2 continental was made when ford wanted the continental to be a stand alone super high-end brand of it's own... They reverted to absorb it into Lincoln later...
