Fun To Drive On Road Trips, Not Fun In Town. — 1978 Lincoln Town Car Continental Cartier Series. 460 V8 engine for plenty of power, and it gets 17MPG on the highway. Glides down the road like a B12 bomber, smooth.. 24,000 original miles. Cold original R-12 A/C system. Power hydraulic assist brakes with front disc. Leather interior. AM/FM 8 track quadraphonic stereo.

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

Pros: It's large and in charge

Cons: Hard to park in modern parking lots

78 Lincoln Town Car — cheap to buy, easy to fix, it may be a gas pig but its comfy and I don't have payments so it equals out. The performance is weak with the 460 in it but its low compression and smog equipped, after I dump the cats and emissions equip, and put different timing gears in it I expect a large improvement over stock.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Most comfortable car I've ever driven. Like floating on air.

Cons: low on power, bad on gas
