    Lincoln. I hope my Mark VIII works out well. I like the 90-97 Town Cars, as well as the suicide door Continentals and 70s Town Cars. I have kind of a soft spot for the Blackwood even.

    Jag. I've always wanted an XJ with a 500ci transplant (but a 77-84 Coupe Deville is easier and weighs about the same so I've never considered it.) I'd definately take an XJR/XKR or XJR 'vert.

    Re: Luxury Car appreciation thread (non Cadillac)

    For some crazy reason I just assumed it had to be cars we each had owned. I see I was wrong:

    New additions:

    Maserati Quatraporte
    Bentley Azure Convert, & Continential "T"
    Audi A8-L of 2001-2004
    End of the run 1994 Alfa Spyder Convert.
    1961 Imperial LeBaron (the one with the emblems so fine they were declaired Jewerly by the US government & the cars had a "Fine Jewerly" tax levied on them) ~
    a 1974 Imperial Crown Coupe (57 made, I'll take the lone black one) !
    Cheaper Luxury Cars....
    Mazda 929 & a Mitsu Diamante

    Above All My #1 the ultimate machine, the "Q" (as in Maserati)

    I'm not getting into trying to list non-current model cars since it would take a long time.
    As for current model cars, there's two that always turn my head. I like the new MB CLS cars and the new BMW M6 is pretty hot too. Actually I like most AMG and M cars.

    My son has a picture of a real hot CLS but until I can get it from him, this one will have to do.

    **CAR PORN ALERT**

    Not tryin' to flame, but this car is shit. If you've been lucky (or unlucky) enough to drive one, you'll understand. It's suppose to a blend of performance and luxury, but it does neither well. The suspension is too rough for normal driving, but the weight throws this car about when you drive the twisties. And the damn tranny. MY god, the tranny is horrible. Shifts are rough, and it takes forever to get in the gear you choose, when you decide to do choose. On the surface this car is nice, but its one major letdown for me.

    If we are including Bentley, then no other car even remotely compares IMHO. An Arnage T by Mulliner for the daily driver, both sporty and extremely sophisticated. And an Azure for the wknd getaway, the ultimate luxury convertible.
    P.S. The continental is a girls car. And Rolls-Royces are for stuffy old farts who don't know the difference between windshield washer fluid and differential oil.
    If it needs to be affordable, a Jag XKR all the way. Although I think the LS430 is a better all around car, it just doesn't exude the class that a Jag does.
    I don't want to choose any Benz, because everyone does, but an S600 is the best luxury 4 dr available to the made-man, before you include Bentleys, Rolls, and Maybachs. It has the most amenaties, the best sounding engine, taut handling, and its the one luxury car that says, "**** you, I don't care." IE, seriously overpriced for what it is.
