    It was after business hours, so there were no sales-associates to be found.

    Dear Panthers,
    Just spent an afternoon in the Henry Ford museum in Dearborn. A Tucker, a Cord, the first Caddy with electric start, the Airflow, the Bugatti (a little shorter than my 89 CP), the Simplex, Chrysler 300A, pace cars, concept cars, fisher bodied Packards, the Willys Overland frame - and the machines that made them! just brilliant. I herewith pledge my $200 to send Scott to Dearborn on vacation. Any other takers?

    Thaine to be our bank. Donald

    Were the locomotives still there? Thinking of bringing the kids there.

    I actually like the spaceship commercial. I hope the new keyless entry doesn't make sound like the commercial shows.

    I don't like them either. Too small. Too tall. Not long enough. Not stylish or impressive looking. Ugly grill. A very sorry looking car and a poor substitute for the town car. What else. No v8 no rolls grill no continental hump. No opera windows. No Lincoln styling cues. A sorry car. Why would anyone buy one over a Taurus or acura or Camry? I for one will never buy a baby Lincoln. N I think theory are a dead brand if they don't build a proper town car and mark. A real Lincoln is a big impressive sedan or a big flash coupe. A mid size or compact is better obtained from acura or Toyota. Lincoln reminds me of Oldsmobile when they killed the rwd. Delta 88 and 98 and got rid of the red cutlass and only built compact weird looking compacts. These small cars like the current Lincoln's impressed no one and not only didn't attract new buyers but alienated the old ones. I could not
