I disagree with the notion that Lincoln hasn't done anything since the 1960's. They almost destroyed Cadillac in the 80's, and they came pretty close to being the "European" American Luxury Car. When they had to figure out what the hell to do when size DIDN'T matter anymore, they first did one of the wildest… » 7/01/14 3:50pm 7/01/14 3:50pm

I am not ashamed to say this because there is a great amount of Panther love here.....ANY Panther, but especially a Town Car, are excellent cars for tall people. I drive an 07 Town Car and am 6'4...and I have more than enough space. The son is almost 100 pounds heavier than I though, and the 40/20/40 bench will give… » 3/27/14 6:41pm 3/27/14 6:41pm

This will NOT seem conventional, but pretend for a second that you are a person that knows NOTHING about cars. A friend saw me driving my 1985 AMC Eagle Wagon at night one time on the freeway. She called me immediately and said, "Hey Derek! I just passed you! Did you know that there is another one of your cars behind… » 2/18/14 2:58pm 2/18/14 2:58pm

I've got to imagine there cannot be a much worse car than a Pontiac Fiero. One, that unnecessarily tall and wide transmission tunnel. There is no getting around that thing. Not to mention the giant shifter; she can't even use that to get off. Then, you sit SO low in the car with minimal headroom that you would have to… » 2/13/14 11:48am 2/13/14 11:48am

This is really quite true, I think. I am a millenial who sells cars, and I think that most non-jalops of our generation would never change the oil if the obnoxious lights, screens, etc. didn't say to do so. Me? I drive a 30 year old AMC Eagle; if I forget to check the oil every four days I'm basically fucked. However,… » 2/06/14 5:29pm 2/06/14 5:29pm

As an owner of one of the first "sport wagons", and for someone who wants to very loosely use the term "crossover", I am all for this. I've said for a long time that if Mercedes ever offered an employee lease on an E Wagon, I'm in. Crossovers are pretentious, ugly, mundane, trying to be something they are not, and,… » 1/28/14 10:51am 1/28/14 10:51am
