I saw that Scirocco from the other day in a totally different neighborhood this afternoon and the left front tire was still completely flat!

So many questions.

Lincoln Quicksilver Concept

I don’t even follow fuckyeahuglycars but this has turned up on my dash three times today. Apparently it’s struck a nerve.

Right around this same time (early ’80s) Ghia also turned out a rad little roadster concept for Ford that shared the same stages as this Lincoln and would’ve stolen Mazda’s thunder with the Miata by a good five years had they put it into production. Instead the idea got watered down until eventually it was this forgettable little turd.

Harder still to imagine this car as an actual Lincoln, but looking at it now I realize how neatly it encapsulates the future I was promised as an adolescent car nerd. I’m still waiting for it.
