As the weather has decided to release its icy grip on Michigan, work has resumed on the Lincoln, and while it's not yet a clean boulevardier, she is progressing. A full round of brake and suspension inspection is happening this weekend (which means making a list of all the bushings needed, to those unfamiliar with working on old cars) as well as cleaning up and painting some things that need a coat. Since those left coast boys working on that beater of a LeMons Volvo haven't gotten far enough to start their car up yet, I figured I'd fire up the Conti and perhaps raise the fervor of their build pace — let the low blows continue!
