Lincoln Continental; Great Car For Low Price! — Lots of power with a 4.6 DOHC V-8 has almost every option you can get except CD player :( With 280 hp it could burn rubber if you want it to. Nice and comfy leather heated seats and great for long trips and general driving. Thats the stuff you can only find in a Lincoln or Caddy! Only had to pay $4,000 with safety/e-test and liscensing taken care of.

Finest Land Yacht Ever Built — The intek v 32 valve engine is one of the best. I have driven mine for 208,000 miles so far with any major repairs. I have kept up all maintenance as suggested by Ford. The fine leather interior has lasted and is just now developing cracks in the drives seat. This is still one of the finest looking cars on the road today, a true land yacht. Gas mileage runs 19-21 miles per gallon. With the sunroof open and all the windows down driving it has a fun factor of 10/10. Incase you can't tell, I am still in love with my continental after all these years.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Good Car — Powerful, comfortable and reliable car with decent fuel economy and handling, Perfect for long trips with family on highway. Huge trunk is good for any luggage. Wish it was a rear drive car for more fun and much better handling.

Primary Use: Commuting to work
