    That's /real/ luxury, right there.

    I've always wanted a limo, and I miss my '86 Town Car. That's a great ride, Mariusz, I'm glad to see it so well well cared for

          Now I know I should visit LoD forums more often, I won't miss the opportunity to send photos of my new rides for the 2018 calendar.

          White limo was cool, I took this picture in Germany, I have many good memories from that trip.

            Wow. That thing is /very/ unique. And exactly the same color as my old '86. What a great find!

            I'd love to see a set of interior shots of that thing. I wonder how they set it up.

              I wasn't a big fan of blue cars until I got this Town Car, now I also have a blue Mark VIII.

              There's a divider with glass and no additional seats in the back, so it has lots of leg room. Apparently one of the previous owners left the back window open in the rain

                This is my "new" Mark VIII with only 34K miles that I'm often using to tow a trailer with my son's blue truck inside

                  I'm blown away by both of your cars, Mario! That overhead shot of the limo is really spectacular, as is the interior. Too bad about the water damage, but it's just exactly what I'd want, otherwise. Paint code 3Y, "Medium Regatta Blue," if I'm not mistaken. You need to fill in that bar with some LOD Glassware..

                  And the '93 blue on blue Mark will forever be one of my favorites as well. I'm surprised we didn't see that car come up here when it was up for auction! It's a good thing you've come around to the blue cars, but you've also managed to find some genuinely fine examples.

                    The blue Mark VIII wasn't that nice when I bought it. I found it on Copart auction in Austin, TX for $700. My friend from San Antionio towed it home and helped me to fix it. Too bad the rear glass was still OK in the auction pictures and when he came there to pick it up it was already broken

                      Ouch.

                      So somebody bought a nearly perfect "barn find" Mark, only to wreck it right away.

                      Well, the car is going to be better cared for now than it would have pretty much anywhere in the states. You sure can't beat $700 for that "young" of a car, too.

                          Thanks, first owner of my Town Car was actually Catalina wine mixer type of guy, he never registered it and used it only on his private property somewere around Pebble Beach Unfortunately he passed away one year after he bought the car and left it for the family with only 700 miles.
