My latest Panther score!

Just the other day one of my customers walked in and wanted a battery check on a garaged, clean, 2004 Lincoln Town Car that sits most of the time. It's for sale and I showed mild interest in it but it was dark, there was dew on the car and the general condition was questionable until I could see it in the sun. Well he came in and I bought it on the spot. Allow me to introduce my new 2004 Lincoln Town Car Signature. Silver over grey leather. Air suspension has been replaced, clean inside and out, 118K miles, well maintained and garaged. Drives as silent as a recording studio and smells new inside and only two flaws. Rear bumper has a sizeable scratch and the driver door mirror glass has gone dark. Those are a trifle considering the $3200 purchase price.

Absolutely beautiful example of a well maintained car! I would love to find something like that. I've just spent the last week replacing the intake, valve cover gaskets, thermostat, plugs, and coils. Shes back to square but still doesn't make me grin like that Lincoln. Congratulations man!

With all the decisions you've made in your life, are there any you'd change?

Oh, yeah. Many. But, luckily, this is the way it is. We have to accept our condition as human beings to be vulnerable to the fates, to weakness, to insecurity, and these all create the elements for the challenge you are facing every day and that you are trying to overcome. This is why, when we finally succeed in doing something, in spite of all the difficulties, it's a great reward. A great personal satisfaction. - Alex Zanardi

I foresee marauder wheels and sans hood ornament in the near future!

DOHC heads and 4:11 gears should be priority lol
