What's the chance of renaming this forum to;

OLD FORDS AND MERCURYS

You guys know how much I like my HOT ROD LINCOLNS

------------------

Looks like the chance of change was great... But, KULTULZ, I'm curious if you like Lincolns, why you had SteveL change the name to Old Fords and Mercurys? Are you guys part of the crowd that calls Lincolns "overstuffed Mercs" (small crowd) or the Mercs "Baby Lincolns" (large crowd)?
I like the change, though.

I like 'em all (not too much on pre-1949 though.

OLD FORDS just didn't fill the bill if you ask me. I like the older iron myself, and of course you had to use LINC/MERC power to pull it down the road.

But anyways...there is life out there besides MUSTANGS. Maybe a few more will come out of the woodwork...

That is the MERCURY Super Marauder (1958) 3x2 setup and was also used on the LINCOLN series.

This particular photo is from a gentleman in Scandanavia (I can't remember the particular country now) that is restoring a 1958 LINCOLN.

There is a website discussing the car, but it is down right now.

How's that for drool factor?

Just to let you guys know what one looked like, this is a '59;

Now...to me...that is pretty. Imagine it with a two tone paint job like Bob describes.

My grandpa had one too.
My dad and I both wish he would have kept it.
What an awesome looking car.The 40's and 50's were some fun and inovative times for the cars.I was born about 15 years to late.But then again I'd be 15 years older now.

I guess I was lucky. I was a kid in the fifties and saw all of this stuff evolve. Always had teenagers in the neighborhood souping up old FORD's, CHEV's and CHRYLERS.

Fell in love with MERCURY when a fellow brought a '57 TURNPIKE CRUISER over to my grandfather's house one day. He made her stand up right in front of the house.

And then came the sixties...
