      Nobody makes fun of me for being a car-guy. Why would they? I would only make light of those that make it their whole life. Your car is not your identity.

      What an asinine thread. :facepalm: Like abortion, if you don't like them, don't get one. I like V-10s and V-12s that fit the job. Maybe I'm a bad person.

      I was promoted to "retired with benefits". Two more years and you guys get to pick up the tab for my insurance. In the meantime, the wife starts getting SS checks. Thanks for the support, boys!

      I've never been to the Lane Museum, but I've seen a bunch of Jeff's cars at Concours. We used to be the only two grey long-hairs at the shows, but that's changed.

      It's pretty hilarious that on the classic Lincoln sites people are clamoring for Lincoln to build a RWD monster-boat so they can buy it used in 30 years. When polled, not a single one would buy one...
