      Turns out I didn't need the plastic part. A friend in Florida that build race cars offered to make me the pipe on his mandrel bender. While he took his sweet time after promising a 1-day turnaround,...

      Lucky, you were. I can't believe I didn't break anything. The bigger they are the harder they fall. I've had worse. I leaned a ladder against a brace in a factory and it was poorly secured. I came...
    8. What do you know about dual-chamber tires available in the late '70s

      In researching some unusual things about my new/old "slick-top" 1969 Lincoln Continental Mark III I discovered the the car came with an early run-flat tire. The bias-ply tire had an inner chamber...

      Did you ever see the poor woman that mistook a can of foam for some kind of hair treatment?

      I had my driveway slab lifted with foam a few years ago. It's difficult to control. The company that did the work no longer does it. Highly profitable, but I'm betting they "bulged" more than a few...

      Getting proper material out of the manufacturer has been like pulling teeth. However, their record-keeping has proven invaluable in getting matching paneling. It has a layer of vinyl that allows it...

      The '58 Mark III was a Lincoln. The Mark II was the only product of the Continental Division.

      You only restored a Mark II for love. An average restoration is $200,000 for a $100,000 car, at best.

      The idiot had to file the orientation shanks to get them to fit wrong. His "customization" sucks, Bigly!

      Definitely Continental Mark II. The Lincoln Division had nothing to do with developing it.

      This is a sad car. Somebody spent a lot of a lot of money on doing an interior and exterior all wrong....

      Yes, the '70 and '71 Mark III had hidden wipers. The early '69s had no head restraints. They didn't become mandatory until the beginning of 1969 and production started in April of 1968, hence people...

      New to me. Rare naked top Mark III. 95 made, total. The rest had vinyl tops because they were cheaper than doing a nice job of metal-finishing. 38,000 Miles. Never restored.

      Those were just Lincolns and shared no design DNA with the Mark II. They called the '58 Mark III a Continental, but it was just a model in the Lincoln line-up.

      The closest interim step was the '61...

      Reliable. They transport a lot of Ford stuff. Ford used them to take our Mark II to Pebble Beach. They're expensive, but know what they're doing.
