1972 Lincoln Continental Limousine ~ goes by the name "Large Marge" ~ Very nice shape, with 85k original miles, runs & drives excellent. Original 460-4V V8 engine with Automatic Transmission, both were professionally rebuilt in the past, car starts right up, runs good, shifts good, idles good at stoplights, just like it should. Tires are a nice set of matching Michelins that are like new. All lights work, even the reverse lights. Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows & Sunroof (all work, some need help closing/ rolling up), factory rear-air unit (works), factory 8 trac player built into dash, and another 8 track player built into wall of passenger rear seating area. There is also a factory built in Cassette player and clock on the opposite side of the rear seating area. I do not have 8 tracs or tapes to try these out, they look to be in nice shape. There used to be a TV mounted between the backwards seats, which is why the big antenna is on the trunk. The antenna is removable, and is even seen off the car in one of the pictures. There is one small hole drilled in the decklid for the mounting of the antenna, and the back mounts are just suction cups, so removing the antenna if not wanted is not a problem. I have been told this is a PRESIDENTIAL LIMO because it has the flag holders mounted to the front fenders... I don't know enough about these cars to know if that's true or not, but you could put flags on your fenders if you want to, I have the poles that go in there as well. This car is incredibly solid, NO RUST HOLES ANYWHERE that I cans see, even the frame and floors, and quarter panels are rock solid! Paint is old and shows its age, it has little dings, 2 dents in the whole car (one up front on the inside of the passage side front point, the other on the drivers side rear quarter in front of the rear wheel). Overall, this car is in very nice shape, especially for its age and never being restored. This is a unique opportunity to own a very neat, collectable car that is ready to drive and enjoy now. Buy this car and have someone drive you around town in it... :) Interior is nice for being original, dash has a few small cracks, due to its age. The carpet is a little faded, but nice shape and all original. Power locks work when they want to, due to age. Headliner is perfect. Door panels are nice, the arm rests are showing their age and have plastic filler pieces cracked up, I am including a nice original full set to replace the original set in the car still. The cool Flip-up / hideaway headlights work when car is running and lights are turned on or off. Wipers work good, heater and air vents blow properly. Never tried the AC (always had the windows down, sunroof back) but its all there and belt still hooked up to compressor. Very comfortable car to sit in/ ride in/ or drive. Carpeted trunk, with full size spare, and access to President rear-air unit. Car also comes with a folder full of receipts and paperwork from work done on this car over the years. This car is tagged, insured, and driven at least once a week... You would not believe the LOOKERS and the smiles this car brings to everyone's faces when we drive it! Large Marge draws a crowd wherever we drive her. Hate to sell, bought a new truck, need to find my limo a new home. Clean Kansas title in my name.

Runs & Drives Great! Fly into Kansas City KCI Airport and drive it home! A $200 non-refundable deposit is due within 48 hours after the auctions end, so I know I have a serious buyer. The remaining balance is due within 7 days after auctions end. If paying with a cashiers check or money order, your payment must clear my bank before you take possession of the car or have a shipper pick it up. Please be sure to email me with any questions, I'm a nice guy and easy to work with. I live right off I-35 in the South-West part of the Kansas City area, in Lenexa Kansas. Don't miss your chance to own a very unique classic car in very good shape, for a great price! Lets find LARGE MARGE a new home!

Preposed class-action lawsuit targets 'defective' MyFord Touch

Tue, 16 Jul 2013 15:58:00 EST

A national law firm, Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, has filed a proposed class action lawsuit whose presupposition is that MyFord Touch is defective. Specifically, the complaint states that the system - as well as the MyLincoln Touch and MyMercury Touch clones - often freeze, fail to respond to voice or touch commands and have issues connecting to mobile phones.
According to Hagens Berman managing partner Steve Berman, MyFord Touch is a theoretically "brilliant idea" that falls short in actual execution. Said Berman in a press release, "In reality, the system is fundamentally flawed, failing to reliably provide functionality, amounting to an inconvenience at best, and a serious safety issue at worst."
Other MFT issues enumerated within the 41-page filing include problems controlling the window defroster, rear-view camera and navigation system. The suit maintains that Ford is aware of the problem but has yet to submit a workable and acceptable solution to MFT customers. Scroll down if you'd like to read the full press release.

Huge JFK auction includes two classic Lincolns

Wed, 09 Oct 2013 09:31:00 EST

Want to own a piece of American history? Perhaps you should consider 35th President John F. Kennedy's limousine, a stretched 1960 Lincoln Continental, or the last car he safely rode in before his assassination, a 1963 Lincoln Continental convertible. Both of them will be up for sale at the Camelot: Fifty Years after Dallas auction on October 24, a JFK 50th anniversary auction in Boston.
The black 1960 Continental was part of the presidential motorcade and is bulletproof. The body has been restored to the tune of about $35,000, according to RR Auctions, but the interior was left alone. That's okay, because the winning bidder will be able to enjoy lounging in the well-preserved seats and stepping on the original tan carpeting, just as President Kennedy did. The next owner can even play President, with a divider window, passenger air controls and a two-way telephone - if a chauffeur is hired, of course. The starting bid for the Continental is $25,000.
The other car is more historically relevant (but in this writer's eye, less beautiful), and commands a starting bid of $50,000. The white, convertible 1963 Continental was the last car President Kennedy rode in before his assassination in Dallas - with a notarized document by the car's owner at the time as proof. It was used to transport the President, his wife, Jacqeuline, and Texas governor John Connally "from a breakfast and speech at the Texas Hotel ballroom through the streets of Fort Worth to Carswell Air Force Base, where they boarded a short flight to Dallas on the morning of November 22, 1963," according to RR Auctions. Lincoln specialist Baker Restoration in Connecticut restored the car, which included an engine replacement, body work and paint. Most of the interior, including the seats, are in original condition.

Never mind the naysayers; Lincoln is worth saving

In the case of Henry Leland, naming his new car brand after the first President he cast a vote for in 1864 seemed a jolly good idea, on paper.
You should always be careful about the name you choose to give your new baby. The power of association can work in many ways, not always positive.
