You're both right. Dodge Challenger was the base, MKX grill was fitted, and I chopped the Challenger up to represent modernized '64 Conti.

That said, I don't see why the Town Car has to be dropped from the lineup for 2011. With all the retro styling going about, such a redesign on the Ford Panther platform just might be the thing to bring back sales.

Just because it's a Lincoln doesn't mean you should call it a Continental.

I also agree that axing the Town Car was a bad idea. Can't they do something with the Taurus chassis (or is that the Panther you mentioned)?

Now that red thing looks like the unholy union of a Mark VII and an old Dodge Magnum with a little T-bird thrown in.

No, you're not getting it. The continental tire package was the external spare as shown on that Nash.

It's actually brand-agnostic.

Or fake
