wow you guys have really nice colors and one designer series this is awesome nice thread here is mine a 1999 just a click under the last century.Hope you all enjoy fully loaded i just got it three months ago 49,800 miles one owner babied.Doing paint correction starting this weekend.These pictures were the day i picked her up.went on a ferry from connecticut to long island the couple drove a half hour to bring her to me.nice people.
Very nice! And super cool license plate. Now that I think of it, I've seen. a ton of black '03+ (mostly livery of course) but hardly any black '99-02. Surely there were a bunch. Maybe they got all used up?
Thank you! I also never see the 98-02's in black, mine was literally the only one I've seen come up for sale in my area in almost 5 years. Maybe somewhere like NY has a bunch of them still; but I assume they all got run to the ground
2007 Signature Limited with almost 120k on the odometer. Very few cosmetic blemishes inside or out. We call her Large Marge because she's large and in charge. She's been giving me a bit of guff lately, but I still love her. A quick clay bar and coat of sealant got her looking sharp for the summer.
My 2011, Continental Edition, only at 13,743 original miles. Almost like new. No air suspension , 3.55 rear axle, police interceptor engine. I replaced original tires late last year. I went to Blackwalls , less maintenance and far cheaper than whitewalls I could find. I had HID headlights added which make a huge improvement at night. The vanity plates, lol.
Here’s my 2003 Cartier. Color is Ivory Parchment, according to the window sticker I found with the manual. Bought it a couple of months ago to replace my 2003 Executive after the engine overheated.
This car is actually something of a “beater,” it’s been “road hard and put up wet,” as they say. You can see the dent at the rear wheel well, and there are a couple more on the passenger side, as well as a ding in the top of the trunk. You should have seen how filthy the wheels where – they couldn’t even be washed clean. It had to polish them with some rubbing compound to get them looking good again.
I got this one for a couple reasons. It was cheap (only $3800). And currently we don’t have a garage. You can’t keep a car clean when it’s always getting bird poop’d and showered with leaves and other debris from trees. I figured I’d wait to find a primo TC after we get a house with a garage.
Problem is, the more I drive this thing the more I like it! The Cartier is a huge step up from the Exec – quieter, more nifty options (love that trunk lift), not to mention the rare fog lights. I know they’re useless, but they look really cool.
So now, I’m torn! I may end up just keeping this one and fixing it up. We’ll see how I’m feeling when we get a garage in a few years.
Here are a couple of pictures of my previous Town Car. Nothing special, just a dime-a dozen 2003 Executive in silver. Unlike my Cartier, this one was a cream puff when I bought it in 2012 with 185k miles on it. Served me well for another 94k miles until the engine overheated last summer.
I’ve noticed an acute shortage of first-gen pictures on this thread! Here are a couple of pictures of our 1985 Town Car base model. We got this one because my wife wanted a TC. I wasn’t keen in the idea because I was a GM guy, but I’d have to say the car was pretty good to us. We got it in 1994 and kept it for something like 13-15 years. We ultimately sold it because it was leaking oil like a sieve.
Here's my 1998 Town Car Cartier. She's only got 145k on the clock. Had her in the family since 1999, got her with 3,498k miles from the stealership.
I'm the third owner and I take very good care of her even when I do abuse her.
Garage kept for 80% of her life. My 260z keeps her company.
