RealRides of WNY - 1978 Lincoln

When we stopped by to photograph this 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car outside a local garage, we joked with the proprietor how we almost had to stand across the street to get the entire car in the shot. Ford was still a few years behind General Motors in the downsizing of its b-i-g cars, and this Town Car was their b-i-g-g-e-s-t. The living room-like size of the big Lincolns translated to luxurious surroundings, not just for its passengers, but also for its cargo. “Underfoot, in the Town Car, there’s 17 oz. cut-pile carpet. Even the trunk is fully carpeted and separated from the spare tire by a curtain of carpet.” A curtain of carpet! Lol… Today’s RealRide was spotted in the City of Tonawanda.
