Lincoln Navigator: A Dinosaur on Murder Mile

Few cars are as close in proportion to actual dinosaurs as the Lincoln Navigator, a relic of a bygone era of dirt-cheap gasoline and the insatiable appetite for infinite cupholders. We found this one on London's "Murder Mile."

Lincoln Navigator: A Dinosaur on Murder Mile

One would have to be a better approximator of wheel diamaters than I to precisely state the size of its multi-dubs, but let’s just call them boop boop a doobs for the time being.

The Navigator is parked on Clapton Road in the London borough of Hackney, which became famous in the early 00’s as the most crime-ridden street in the United Kingdom. Taking the baton of Murder Mile from Ledra Street in Cyprus, the locale is described in an Observer article from April 2001:

Many of the Clapton Road shootings have stood out because of the levels of ruthlessness and brutality involved. Gunmen have pursued their victims in broad daylight, finishing them off at point blank range in front of streets packed with witnesses.

‘The bodies were still in the car up until midday,’ said one shopkeeper who asked not to be named.

There hulks the big Linc, menacing in the harsh light of a flash fired off at night. And nope, it did not have a handicapped permit on display.
