    Re: Thinking of selling my Town Car for a

    I would never be happy with a used car. I always wnat MY color & MY options, and like that kinda stuff.It probably comes from being in the car business for 27 years! I have never even ever bought a car out of delaer's stock. Gotta be ordered. It's my "thing" ~ Been "around" cars since age 5. I've had 3 Special Paint cars, made for me at the factory, my 1993 Caddy 60 Special is a 1-off done by the Fleetwood Trim Shop, had a Playboy Pink Mark 7, factory made, and a Fire Engine Red Imperial LeBaron, back in 1975. I know that the Grabber Orange GT would be far from a 1-off, but, it is different. 'Ya, I'm fussy. Not into sports, Atrlantic City, New York nightlife, stock market, art & science....just cars. It's my thing.......

    Just not sure after 60 days if I'd regret going from a Town Car Limited Edition with everything on Ford Goodie Shelf, to a small Mustang.
    Caddies are out, don't like their "style" and they are overpriced. Not alot out there.....Looked at a Jag S-Type. Could not fit in the thing, yet I fit comy into the 'Stang....
    I'd like to place an order for a 1969 Impala SS Convert with the 427 V8 and all options....... Hugger Orange~

    Not even a STS-V Sandy? That would combine the luxury of the TC with the brute performance that surpasses the Mustang.

    I highly doubt an XLR-V is in his price range....

    Brougham......just realized that I know the owner of THAT Pink 1960 Imperial !! I didn't realize it, until I saw you were in CANADA! Yup, know him. It was his grandfather's car and he has been restoring it. It's a 4-Dr Southampton Crown, with the"tire" on the trunk lid.

    I don't like the STS because it always looks like it's going down a steep hill. The front looks like it's kissing the pavement, and that the back end is wearing 22's .... They don't "look" "Cadillac" ~ they look Japanese.

    I would not buy a XLR as they are way too much money, and I need a back seat. IF I was dropping $90,000 for a car, it would be a Jag XK Coupe, hands down!

    If they offer those two chicks inside for $90,000 I'd be interested too.

    I don't think the one I saw had the wheel on the trunk lid. But maybe it did. Wheres that car supposed to be? That will probably tell for sure if it's the same one or not because I don't think there are too many of them around here.

    I don't remember, DARN! I either met him on here, or the Town Car board. Then again, maybe he dropped off. I'll go make a post over on the Town Car board (www.lincolntowncar.org)

    I bought my first new car at the age of 27. It wasn't my first choice of car('01 Accord coupe) but it did have the options and color I wanted.

    But my second new car, the V, was ordered just how I wanted it. There may have been only 2 exterior and 2 interior colors with only a couple options, but to actually fill out an order form for my car was quite exhilerating(I think I spelled that incorrectly)! And to pick up my V was a feeling like no other.

    BTW- That would be exhilarating (a not e).

    Sandy is correct on all counts, as usual.
    I have never thought of the STS as Japanese
    looking, prior to now.

    It's too expensive, too small on the inside, too small on the exterior, totally void of any decrotive trim, too plain vanilla looking, and looks like it's wearing 15 inch tires/wheels on the front and 22's on the rear. The sides are flat as a wall (from top to bottom ~ as in from the window sill to the rocker panel) or as in North to South on the car's flanks. The DTS looks Cadillac-esque. The STS looks mid level Lexus / Infiniti or like a M35 or a GS or IS350.

    The only domestics that still look like a luxury car are the DTS & the Town Car. Last years Buick Park Avenue Ultra also, but the new Lucerne looks like an Impala ~ a nice Impala ~ but still an Impala.

    Yeah, but for the blue hairs and the chauffeurs, they can't be beat!
