    Mistake an ETC for a Lincoln?

    Last night I decided to get some Wendy's drive through, when I got to the window the girl asked me if my car was a Lincoln? WHAT!? I couldn't have felt more insulted. Then I just realized she's a drive through window girl and the only guys she's been around only drive lincolns at best

    Some people know nothing about cars. The only coupe Lincoln has made lately is the Mark VIIIs, and the ETCs look nothing like the Marks. For that matter they look nothing like the Continentals or Town Cars either... Like I said some people know nothing about cars.

    We can all agree being mistaken for a Lincoln or Cadillac is better than... like Acura or something. Man it pissed me off once time some guy informed me I could've bought an integra for what I spent on my ETC.

    Re: Mistake an ETC for a Lincoln?

    i may have to purchase a new car, because mine leaks coolant and i run the risk of it over heating and killing the motor. my father told me i should get something "economical and cheap" meaning 4 cylinder accord, but i would probably end up gettin a Town Car because i hear only good things about them, and i dont hear the best reviews of the 4.9's and the N*'s. I hear pretty good remarks about the '90-'97 TC's the only major thing is the air suspension going bad and if that went, i would get it converted to coils anyways. but hopefully i'll keep the caddy.

    The 4.9s are solid and if you keep up the coolant maintenence not much beats a northstar.

    Re: Mistake an ETC for a Lincoln?

    Well, u guys had it good compared to one of my experiences. I hat do drive my parents to a party once and when I got there people complemented me on my car but this one guy who has a civic coupe with a manual gearbox is like "that's pretty nice, it's probably a 6-cylinder right?" I tell him it has a 4.6 V8. Then he goes on talking about how quick a civic is with a manual tranny :disappoin . I was happy I didn't have to stay there for too long.

    No speed limiter on Mustangs and what do your Z rated tires have to do with anything?

    Cars are chipped from the factory based upon their suspension and speed rating of their tires. Factory Z-rated tires mean a lot.

    GT Mustangs are also over-rated by fanboys. If it doesn't have Saleen or Cobra on it: .




    Back to the topic:

    Cadillacs are finely chiseled while Lincolns are bulbous and bloated looking (at least in the last few generations; there was a time when they used to be much closer in design philosophy). Mistaking one for the other could only come from someone with complete ignorance of cars in general (which sounds to be the case).
