"I bought my 1996 Lincoln Continental Anniversery Edition for $500 last November. Had to do a full tuneup, replaced the radiator to be on the safe side (mainly because it was 16yrs old and plastic end caps are very prone to dry rot), new shifter cable (because the previous owner somehow broke it), tires, brakes, the usual stuff. I love this car, its my baby, no rust, never breaks down, I usually get 17 mpg city, 28 Hwy, and on the interstate, I average 32mpg with the a/c on!! I drive about 1000 miles a week on the interstate for work, i have put about 30,000 miles on the car since ive had it. Insurance is cheap (for me,I'm 21), its easy to work on, extremely reliable, very powerful for something with so many miles, its a screamer, its no problem to blow the dorrs off my buddys roushe mustang. Overall awesome car, beautiful, tough and safe. Great buy. Tis a shame they don't make like they used to."
