.......ha ha, you'll have no pockets left soon, might see you wandering around Coldale in just the Reg Grungy's.........anyway, glad I could help burn a whole in your pockets for something worthwile.
Pretty rare & sort after these JFK Lincolns..mmm...460...mmm..RHD mmm.....ragtop....mmm...suicide doors...mmm....LL numberplates. Tell us..............was it an exeptional bargain, this one is definetly unique!
One thing true, you'll be both cruising down the Cruizville Highway in comfort & style, probably got an autolite carby on it, get this tuned & she'll purrr for a lot longer between drink stops!
Cheers Adam........any more stories attached to the day out/cars

don't know if it was exceptional, but we're happy with what we paid for it, even though it was more than we originally planned. (damn that other bidder).
lots of loose items, going for cheap prices but nothing of interest to us. eg. box of carbys about $30, crown hand pallet lift - $75
'55 fairlane victoria, lhd good nick - $25000 '14 overland in vg condition - $16000 5 litre vp 'opera house' commodore #001 of 100, vgcond - $8000 '07 300c turned in at $37000, immaculate roller turned in at $21000 i think)
didn't stay for all the wrecks etc, was in a bit of dollar shock by then.
he was trying to make $400,000 but don't think he got there - only 190 people registered to bid.
Now if ya make the 2 X 10 gallon hats.. "fuel tight" .. and top 'em up at each stop....weeellllll .. that'll get ya an extra 20 miles down the road.
I honestly think if the carb is in good condition and motor in good tune ... and the car driven "sensibly" ya might just get a surprise with the fuel consumption. The bloody big thing wont struggle with a van hanging off its back and with bags of torque it might turn out to be easy on the pocket....
Yeah right Reddo...... like 5 mpg is gunna be good.
As you say... "ya cant take it (money) with ya".... and... ya only here once.... make a fist of life while you can.
Boy, this Judy sounds like a tough cookie, but in reality she is only enforcing what the doctor said.
If Geoff isn't a good boy, Judy might take it for a drive by herself & leave him at home

All I can say, is be carefull ;D This Lincoln is a lot more powerfull that the other Ford brand. 7 litre V8, (300.0 bhp) (223.7 kW), 0 to 100 in 12 seconds which is not bad for a car that weighs 2,340kg!
