A few years ago my dad rented a Lincoln Town car... what a luxury ride and you could sleep real comfortable in the backseat.

If you don't like the look... don't buy it. Everyone has a choice of vehicles they buy...there is so many to choose from. Some people like Lincoln which is part of Ford family... if they don't like it, they can buy Cadillac that is part of GM family.

You could buy a house with the price of Rolls Royce and maybe Ferrari. :)

Anyway, remember there was a big competition between Cadillac and Lincoln a long time ago. After Lincoln Continental was gone, Cadillac was like "Yay!" Soon it's coming back, will Cadillac be like "Uh-oh!"?

Suicide doors-
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suicide_door

They are hinged on the rear of the door rather than the front of the door and tend to fly open while in transit because of air flow at least with much older cars. They are better made now I think-- considering the Mini we have has 'suicide doors'

some better looking pictures- If you scroll down to near the end, there's a picture of a Lincoln Continental.

Cars with suicide doors

The old classic Lincolns had Suicide Doors and I loved that style. Now any car can have it, but every time I think about those doors, I always think of Lincolns.

Don't think I will ever own a luxury car but nice to see American car line bounce back even if it's owned by Ford.

Alright, why are those doors called suicide doors? Do those doors suicide the driver/passengers? :confused:
