    The wife's new Lincoln Corsair Reserve

    The wife's 2023 Lincoln Corsair Reserve finally arrived -- after 9 months and 3 days. It is powered by a four banger 2.0L (!) GTDI (Gasoline Turbo charged Direct Injection) motor.

    The wife is really sad about giving up her 2011 MKZ. She is still making noises about keeping it. In theory, they will start making 2023 Corsairs 1/6/2023. There is still no production date on the Mavrick I ordered.

    HOTLNCs new owner will be CarsForKids

    Well, after new O2 sensors and all the other minor fixes possible, HOTLNC is still failing emissions. After each part replacement or fix, the numbers are getting higher. That leaves the cats. With a motor that is still strong at 300K miles, I'm done spending money on it. I'll be donating the...

    HOTLNC at EOL??

    Well, I tried all of the chemical "fixes." I'm failing Nox by almost 10 times standard reading at 25 MPH. Everything else is fine. It is throwing no codes, other than spastic O2 Sensors. Are there any suggestions aside from putting it down? Odo shows 295,041 miles.

    WTB: Need 93-95 Rear Reflector

    I need a rear reflector for HOTLNC (94). Most of the rear lights and the lock cover connect to this trunk lid length part. I will even take a lock cover, if you have one.

    My Holes Are All Plugged Up

    I was doing a vacuum bleed of our old Ford F350's brakes and I found all of the bleeder valves plugged with dirt. I had to remove the valves completely to unplug them. I guess I better buy some covers for the valves. At the beginning of summer, the dirt dubbers even sealed up the ignition...
