    New Cad's suck especially, but there were some nice old ones. I'd still take a Lincoln over a Cad any day of the week....

    I don't care for the new Caddy's, and not crazy about most of the older ones. However, I love the vintage Lincolns.

    If we're talking the 60's vintage ones I'd have to agree. However, I haven't seen anything by Lincoln in recent history that is remotely competitive with the CTS. All they seem to sell are different versions of a tarted-up Fusion. The LS wasn't bad in it's day however...

    I drive a current gen Town Car(burgundy with a tan cloth top) ...I quite like it for the looks, size and comfort. As for the CTS, I find them ugly and very cramped inside. The lines are just not appealing to my eyes either...

    Cadillac does not have a car to compete with the Town Car, so there's no reason for me to go to a Cad. Cadillac in general offers nothing to make a Lincoln driver go to Cadillac IMO. As for other current Lincoln models, I really only like the Navigator.

    BTW your avatar is sweet.

    Ah well if we're talking a Town Car class of car I guess you'd be right. The STS etc. is definitely a size down from there.

    Thanks for the avatar props - Goldfinger is truly one of the great Bond villains. I was looking around for a picture of him in that shooting outfit but couldn't find a suitable one.

    Oh a CTS-V would be fantastic.

    I'd love a 61/62 as my cruisin' mobile

    Its a shame the 'new' GM is going to stunt Caddie's growth. Not developing a full sized REAR wheel drive model is a huge mistake. They could be capitalizing on the death of the town car and their renewed reputation. But no, we're going to get a watered down FWD blob the germans have every right to snicker at or it'll be a 3 model division for the foreseeable future.

    Not a fan of the old Caddies. My wish would be for a XLR with the Corvette engine; I think the previous/current one was supercharged. Those look sinister, especially in black, and the angular looks work with the folding top up or down.

    I really like old luxury car advertisements aimed at the US market -- they're very stylish.

    It's a very rare car...cost more than a Rolls for that year IIRC. It didn't sell very well, and Ford was taking a loss on each of those they produced so I've heard. If you can find one, you could probably pick one up for a decent deal actually. They're under appreciated IMO.

    They do, but it's not as big as a town car. [​IMG]
