Lincoln probably deserved the car that ultimately became the reborn Ford Thunderbird. Would Matthew McConoughey have been insufferable in the ads? Maybe. But you’d be able to pick up one of these for CHEAP on Craigslist. And that would have been worth it.

I definitely like the Lincoln Mark X but I’d prefer the MK9 concept in my driveway.

Love that french boudoir interior.
