1972 Lincoln Mark IV from Germany – Comments

31st Aug 2005, 23:23

There are very few domestic cars from the #039;70#039;s that are considered true classics yet in the US. the Mark IV is not one of them.

You have so many cool cars to choose from, cars that we never had and never will be able to have in the US, and you picked this old Lincoln over those?

Of course, there are classic automobiles of European manufacturers.

But they all have one thing in common: they are not very special, even in top condition. You will find five Jaguar E-Types, five Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing, even more other old Mercedeses and a handful of Rolls-Royce on the smallest classic car meet. Japanese cars do not have any collector car status in Europe yet.

Perhaps they would have if they had not all rotten away. Because of this fact, classic car potential of American cars has grown in the last years. Compared to European cars, they are easy to maintain, parts are mostly cheap and easy to get.

I agree with you that the Mark IV has not yet the status of a collector car in the U.S. but I am sure it has in 10 years from now. Same for the Cadillac Eldorado. Prices for the Eldo Convertible have doubled in the last years.

In Europe they are very rare and special cars with a lot of wow potential.

Why do I buy American cars? (I have more than one)

1. My grandfather did, my father did and does and I do. It is in the genes.

2. American cars always sat the pace in any decade of the last century (electric light, automatic transmission, air conditioning, electric seats, power steering, ABS. – 20 years before others did)

3. You get a lot of car for your money.

4. The cars ride in a very unique way. No one else builds cars like this.

5. Nothing beats cubic inches.

6. They have bold statement.

I could list some more reasons.

I was raised in the seventies. Maybe this explains my affinity to the cars of that decade. So among the first 6 places of my favorite (classic) cars you will find only Americans.

1. 1978-1981 Chevrolet Camaro (owned)

2. 1935-1936 Auburn 851 Speedster/Replica (distant dream)

3. 1975-1976 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible (next on schedule)

4. 1972-1976 Lincoln Mark IV (owned)

5. 1968-1975 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible (Coupe owned)

6. 1971-1973 Ford Mustang Fastback (on schedule)

Modern cars are of no interest for me, because they lack style and personality. I do not buy German cars, because I do not like them. When I get into one, I can#039;t wait to get out again.

That simple.
