: A project car?

12-05-05, 06:54 PM

I can get a 76 Lincoln Mark IV that runs apparently, for $725... Should I do it, despite being strapped for cash? Entering a new job, and almost graduating.

Here's what id do

If you have the cash, and storage until you have more cash, buy it!

I want a Continental Mark V!!

I kinda have the cash, but it's supposed to be down payment on a house. As for storage, I have space here at the complex, but no roof over its head. I can get a car cover for it, which isn't quite the same, and I MIGHT be able to swing some insurance and register it, drive every so often. I want it, but still not financially secure enough to be getting into a project. Plus I think my G/f would kill me if I got that and then didn't get her a diamond this xmas. She already complains if I dont take her out because of low $$...

Dont get it in this case, it really isnt ideal, wait until it is something you will not have to forfeit something important for it.

There will be others

Oh my god, you are doing what I wanna do in about 5 years. To the exact same car!

The Mark IV is my dream car!
A Mark IV with a 525hp Crate 460 is even better!

I would definetly buy it for only $725!
Even as a daily driver, thats a deal, it looks to be in great condition, and it has tons of potential!
460+C6= many possibilites!!

Go for it! :thumbsup:

Do it when you can have a clear head and conscious about it.

the car is by far worth it....

but it seems like you gotta set some priorities... so I would personally hold off.....

Yes, and if you (or I) ever get a Mark IV, we need to wear the pimp hat when driving it ;)

Storage is the only thing between me and that 79 Coupe at the moment. I can go over there right now and cut a check for $500 and own that car the only problem is I have no where to put it. Good luck with that. Doesn't look like it needs much really.

Nah, not getting it. I have a feeling I'd be single if I did.

Not to be a killjoy, but wow!

It'd have lost to my 75 project car anyway :p
