True Love Lasts Forever – The Lincoln Town Car – Classic Luxury

If the Lincoln Towncar doesn’t hold the all time record for car fornication, thenI don’t know what does.  Think of all the proms, weddings, taxis, and horny 1990’s businessmen!. . . Actually don’t.  Today on the Car Truth Report, we delve into what made the Lincoln Towncar loved bymillions, and why you should love it too!The Lincoln Towncar, which ran from 1981 to 2011, and sold over a million units, was inour opinion, the last REAL luxury car that Lincoln ever made.  It may not seem like anything special today, but when you look at what the average interiorof a car was like in the 1990’s, it is no surprise that the Town Car was the most usedlimousine chassis of its time.  I still remember the first time that I got to ride in the back of my friends’ dadsregular length Towncar.  Even though I was only 9 or 10, and knew very little about cars at that time, I stillknew it was special.  The TownCar is something that when you try to explain it in the usual way – with stats- it doesn’t really sound that great.  Even equipped with a V8 – usually a sign of performance – the Lincoln Towncar usuallymade right around 200 horsepower. Though one could be inclined to think that the TownCar’s track record for going manyhundreds of thousands of miles may attributed to having such a under-strung engine.  Hearing of Towncars, or it’s two cousins the Grand Marquis, and Crown Vic with over500,000, or even a million miles on them is not that uncommon.  Also given the average age of someone who currently drives one of these luxury bargesis about 94, I say the less power the better. Rattling off a bunch of numbers isn’t going to get to the nectar, the essence, of whywe here at the Car Truth Report really love the Lincoln Towncar.  The real reason TownCar is truly great, is because it was built with a single, uncompromisingmission, comfort.  Modern “luxury” cars are built with a different ethos: half comfort, and halfperformance.  A perfect example of this was even seen in the Lincoln line-up with the introductionof the much sportier, closet jaguar,“ Lincoln LS in 1999.  And if you are a fan of the Lincoln LS, or just cool car knowledge in general, be sureto subscribe to our channel for future videos. You see, modern seats squeeze you with lumbar support and yadda yadda yadda, but the Towncar’sseats envelope you, like an expensive cushy recliner.  Modern “luxury” cars suspensions are tuned for cornering on racetracks like thenurburgring, while the TownCar’s air ride suspension, when it wasn’t broken, was clearlydesigned with straight lines, and potholes in mind.  There is no reason to be accelerating or turning fast when you are in a Lincoln Towncar,you will get there when you get there.  And if you have somehow made it to this point in your life, without riding in or drivinga towncar, then we here at the Car Truth Report would highly recommend it, so at the veryleast you can see what luxury used to be like, for better or for worse.
