    Ahhh, but the key there is it was an abused RENTAL ! Mine has not a single squeek, creak, nor rattle. It's so quiet you can hear a person in thebackseat whispering! Smooth? So smooth it makes the roads all seem repaved yesterday. Excellent visibility and since the 2003's new suspension, excellent cornering for a car 215 inches long & 4,300 pounds!
    No, performance-wise it's NOT a CTS-V nor a STS-V, that is true. But for normal driving, it's enough. My neignbor 7 houses away is 31, his new bride is 30 and they just bought one, and I am not a "Blue-Hair" (or whatever that was you said,) & this is my 3rd Lincoln, preceeded by my '93 Sixty Special, which was preceeded by 5 Imperials. This all began when I was 23.
    I also like Corvettes & Mustang GTs and Buick GN-X and older Olds 4.4.2.s and any Hemi. But, for many many many drives down to college to see the offspring, over tar-strips, potholes, concrete roads with joints, asphault roads with expansion joints, bridges with similiar expansion joints, and the like, for 104 miles, I'll take a Town Car any day, over some yung punks Nissan Sentra or Honda street racer !

    Funny you mention that. When I picked up my friend from the Miami International Airport last week, there was about 15 chauffeurs all driving new Lincoln Towncar "L" models.. in black. I pulled in across from them and one of the drivers came over to me and asked if he could look at the Fleetwood. Then a couple more chauffeurs ventured over and they said they miss the '94-96 LT1 Fleetwoods and how they were the best while they were in service

    Ya, those Fleetwoods were nice!! REAL nice ! Should have never ended that line. Great engine, frame, interior, everything about them was great. Sadly, the newest one is now 10 years old.

    Back in the '90s, The T/C and Fleetwood both had those longer, lower, flatter styles. Then in '98 Lincoln made the t/c into the more bulbous and rounded, do you think GM would have done the same with the Fleetwood if they kept it?

    Just follow the evolution of the DeVille, and you'll have a pretty good idea of where the Fleetwood's styling would have gone post-1996.

    I've always been a GM guy. But I definitely prefer the Town Car L to pretty much any other vehicle when it comes to practicality and value as far as the Livery business is concerned.

    When the Town Car went to Batmobile in '98, I HATED the look. But I loved the still supple but refined ride. Interior and trunk room suffered greatly, however. Finally, they produced the L. And when it came out with a redesign in 2003, I think Lincoln really nailed it.

    My '04 Town Car L has great room, a great ride and classic but modern styling.

    Your
    Town Car is very nice. I would bought the "L" myself, but in 2003 (not sure about '04/'05/'06) you could NOT get the Power Sun Roof WITH the "L" !! I preferred the Sun Roof.

    Go to a Chrysler or Dodge dealer & check out the 300C / Charger or Magnum's door panels! They are made of recycled plastic soda pop bottles,
    into which they stamp a grain to make it look like vinyl or leather.
    The panels are hard as rocks.
    Dealers in many cases are hounding MOPAR to stop this. The door panels get dirty and CANNOT be cleaned !! The dirt or grease gets on them from the transport driver's pants or tools and is a bear to get clean. Nearly impossible. Can you imagine HOW those panels will look in 3 years ?
    Our Lincolns have PADDED soft touch door panels that simulate leather and
    are easily cleaned with vinyl / leather cleaner. The horsepower in the CryoDodges is a turn on. The interior's cheapness turns me off.
    It smacks of 1968 Chevy Nova door panel design, materials & texture.
    Base Model Nova, that is !

    I like the newer Town Cars from 1998 and newer better then the old ones but I hate the inside!! It was so much nicer on the 1995-1997 ones.

    Did you find anything about that Imperial yet Sandy?

    Yeah Sandy, Acton Lincoln in MA has a Fleet department. Nothing but black Executive and Executive L series everywhere you look. Pretty much a base car. Next one I get gets a dealer installed moonroof. But these guys REALLY MOVE these Town Cars. When you offer a $45,500 car for $38G, you tend to have a high volume moved.

    Brougham, no. I can't recall if it was here or over at the Town Car site, where we met. I posted over there & nothing....yet.

    Big Jim, $$12,000 can be gotten off a new '06 Town Car, right now! $ 7,000 factory-to-cunsumer-REBATE, $2,500 from dealership, off of MSRLP, $500 of the $1,000 "Dealer Bonus Money" and $1,000 LOYALITY for current Town Car owners, totals! So, that $50,000 sticker is really $ $38,000
    Don't forget to toss your salesman a $20.00 "tip" ~ you'd be amazed at how far that will go !

    Yummy, I'll have to pay my salesman a visit this week. I just got out of the fleet warranty of 150,000 miles. I'm at 153K and counting...

    You've got 150,000 miles on her? In 2 years ? My 2003 is at 10,100 miles !
    WAIT! You work for a Drug Store in Vermont and make weekly deliveries to Oregon ??
