  • Norman Rick COOL!!! Hey, I forgot all about those oval windows in the landau roof---what a beauty!! I owned a used 1978 Lincoln Town Car for a couple of years---bought it in 1990! Dark blue---just gorgeous---of course I had to stop at every gas station in sight. Rode like a dream, but big as an Army TANK!!! 
  • Barry O'Brien there are little lights built into the opera windows, this is a designer series, Bill Blass, the interior is probably what Liberace's bathroom looks like, velour and mahogany trim, and yes, the eight track still works!
  • Norman Rick I wanted to say "opera" but I didn't know fer sure, and didn't want to sound like a fool. I most definitely remember the "Bill Blass" cars. I'm jealous, Barry. But I'll show you up some day when I find my dream classic--a 1985 YUGO!! Eatcher heart out dude!! BWAAHAAHAA!!! I'll be plasterin' so many pics all over Facebook!! 
  • Barry O'Brien You could put the 460CI mill in it and your Yugo would go! Pass everything but a gas station!
  • Norman Rick Refresh my memory, Barry---was the first "Mark" a Mark II??? And I am pretty sure there was a III??? All beautiful. And another classic I always loved was the first Monte Carlo---maybe around 1972??? Very cool styling! When I was 17, I got to "tool around town" in my Mom's brand new 1967 Mustang---I loved that car. The day after I got my license, me & my buddy drove it to Wilmington---I had it up to 95 mph (in a 55 mph zone on Rte. 66)---was I an "a-hole" or what?? Don't answer that, John Wason!!   Coming out of Wilmington (heading back to MG), a state trooper followed me for like, 3 miles---I was "blankin' bricks"---but ever so cautious--so, I guess he got bored & made a U-ee back towards Wilmington. Ah, to be young & foolish again---now I'm just old & still foolish! 
  • John Wason I wouldn't have figured you for a guy who liked opera, Barry.
  • Barry O'Brien Norm they had the Mark then II ,III IV, the body style changes is when they changed the number the First mark was a beautiful car they are pretty rare. Several years were designated as MK IVs, It went to MK V in 1977.
  • Barry O'Brien John , I love the opera except for the singing.
  • Ralph Komives Are you driving this now?

  • John Wason And where are you and the car, Barry? In Illinois? Or somewhere warm where there's no snow and salt?
  • Barry O'Brien Still in Illinois, glutton for punishment I guess.
  • Norman Rick "I wish they all could be California cars."...............................beach boys
