You know what's so nice about seeing all of these guys?! ..Is at least for
myself, am actually learning about the cars with each amazing picture.

I mean, honestly know a lot of the names, or nameplates, but before this
thread could probably only identify, or point out a handful of models out
there, or here. So thanks very very much for the lesson guys !!!

They don't compare - 2 different beasts. I do not realy have any thing I've ever owned to compare it to. Years ago, I owned a Lancia Beta Coupe. A small auto which handled well & was alot of fun to drive. My Lincolns drive like you're on a cloud, corner like a marshmallow, are very quiet, have TONS of room & are at their best on the highway a 80 mph. I quite like them.

That curve you see on the deck lid (boot) is just for styling. The full size spare is not behind it. It lays flat on the bottom of the trunk up near the back of the rear seats.

The Family Excalibur


Our Families 1982 Excalibur Phaeton with me showing off my dancers leg.I don't have the dimensions but this car is huge! Only 3,000 of these cars were produced. Driving this car is a pleasure but watch the turns. Our family still owns this car and believe me..this car is a head turner and it has won countless trophies! I've included a video so you can get a better idea.

Thank you...BTW it has Chevy 350 engine installed brand new just after purchase. It's in absolute mint condition and it's worth between $75,000 - $80,000 but we have no intention of selling it. It's a very rare platinum signature edition.

Yowza, yeah, thanks so much for the show sir !

Can't believe we are actually getting to see one of these, and that you
own one as well. It's amazing, and just takes your breath away in
the picture, and video really.

All of the details are extraordinary at each, and every turn, and
it really must be incredible in person, because it's unforgettable
just on this end here. Boy oh boy, what a treat !

Thanks so very very much !!!

It seems that I have caused confusion I was referring to the Cadillac Biarritz

And it's a two-seater no less! The other land yachts could at least seat more people.

How about the lovely 1967 Buick LeSabre coupe:

Oh yes, it qualifies. (217.5 inches, 4023 Lbs.). It also looks a bit menacing . A car from a Sixties TV show like The Green Hornet. That was a Chrysler Imperial but still.

I love those old two door hardtops. No B pillars, no partial window glass poking up, just the huge open expanse of an arcing roofline.

My grandparents had one of these. The 1967 Pontiac Catalina coupe. No doubt sharing a lot of underpinnings with that Buick.
