Lincoln bringing back 'suicide doors' on 2019 Continental
« on: December 17, 2018, 09:38:00 AM »
@Frank Cannon


Lincoln brought back the Continental name two years ago and now it's resurrecting a feature that’s commonly known by a name it would prefer you don’t use.

Looks like they are looking to lock up the Mafia and Hip-Hop markets with this little beauty.

I saw this car on FOX Business channel this morning. Over $100K for a new Conti? Get the eff out of here. The one Kennedy got shot in isn't worth that much.

BTW the Money Honey got into the back of it and it looks like there was plenty of room to bang her in there because, well, she is still a piece of ass....

Good Lord.  There is so much wrong with that picture.  Too bad that guy couldn't have found some chrome reverse rims and some baby moons to match those chrome tip extensions.

I miss the styling of cars when they were cars, not all the same. The excitement of unveiling each year's model, when there were differences in the brands. I still have dreams about my first car, a Laguna Blue 1969 Chevelle.

Tell me you don't long for the days of $4000 cars and engine displacement given in Imperial instead of metric units.

Well $4000 in 1970 is around $25K today......which is the base price for a new Camaro and GM has been using the Liters bullshit since 1971 with the 8.2 Litre.....

Thank you for that info.  Adding it to the database.  A friend and I are developing a theorem on psychological make up of Pontiac owners and you fit right in to our initial hypothesis.

I feel the same about car colors too.  Most of them are so drab.

Still applying for grant money for the Pontiac thing, but Chevelle will be a good one for when those millions run out.

Favorite boyfriends' cars from back in the day, 1968 Dodge Super Bee and 1966 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 and a Mustang convertible, not sure of the year. Sigh.
