I wish you were bringing this TC the LCOC meet in TN next month......I do not own a Lincoln but I am attending the meet with a good friend and club member that has several 1969-1979 Lincoln's.
Your TC is very unique and elegant with the Coach roof sans the opera windows. I would love to see this classic beauty one day.
Back in the 90's when I was a supplier to GM I lived at at the Citation Club in Farmington Hills.....very nice neighborhood.
Thanks for sharing this classic!
I love the LCOC as a club because of the people, but won't participate in a points-judged event. As stated before, I like people telling me what they like about the car, not what's wrong with it.
Citation Club is right around the corner from me.

It was just convenient to pick it up now as he was downstate attending a CCCA judging seminar. We'll hitch a ride to the show where he'll deliver it show-worthy, and then we'll drive it home.
'77 was the first year for the 400 engine. While some people swear they can tweak some hp out of them, there's no substitute for cubic inches.
'77 was also the last year for the "Lincoln" dashboard with the horizontal "thermometer" speedo and the last year for full fender skirts.
I thought that concept was funny. This car is a behemoth, exemplary of a certain style in that decade. Weren't '57 Chevys just another car at one point too?
Growing up, there was a family on my street with 2 of these: one bright blue and one pale yellow...my parents were modest folks, driving Fords, so they always referred that family as the "rich" family...
What's the toggle switch on the top right? Does it raise the emabassy flags on the fenders?
