    Wow. So much want for this. Wife may divorce me but I almost inquired. If it was white with a blue top/interior it would be game on.

    She knows I want one, but Iím restraining myself because there are other things we want to do and we barely drive the two brand new Volvos we have!

    The rule for me is, I have to get rid of two if I want to buy one. Thatís whatís holding me back. lol

    One of the main reasons I donít want to get one just yet is that I want a third garage bay. To put a TC in our garage I would have to get rid of my work bench and storage to fit it. Then my wifeís XC90 would just barely squeeze in on the other side (steps). I would also have to live with my car sitting outside all the time which although not the end of the world is an issue.

    When we bought this house I knew it would be easy to add a third garage bay, so it will be a two part thing. Add on an extra deep third bay and then the car.

    It will most certainly be an 88/89 TC or a 77-79 Continental/Mark V.

    This has already been HO converted with mass air. for 5.5k on a clean looking town car. price is great. End up paying more down the line to make one thats for sure. Id grab it if I had the space too.

    I noticed a few things on this beautiful TC. It has the center "console which was for the optional cd player. no cd player. The floor mats are from a 96s lincoln. I like the wheels, again from a mid 90s Lincoln. What is that item on the back seat floor ? I notice a antenna on the trunk. That glove box door is as straight as an arrow. Excellent buy.

    Yeah, what a shame. Like, lets gut this ultra rare CD player/Factory JBL stereo for this POS, stanky-ass Pioneer...

    Much want for that car, it's got every option. Dude doesn't want a fortune for it either. I'd put my Turbines on it ASAP and then sell my '88.

    I donít mind those wheels on it. Maybe he did big brakes and needs the 16s. Those are 95/97 wheels. Iíd install pinstripe white walls and restore the factory JBL w/ CD.

    Same, except for the wheels, which I hate. Not classy enough for such an automobile.

    Oh, yeah, probably. If that car was local, I would have bought it to replace mine.
