YAK Car Pic of the Day

“Damned be the gas prices, full speed ahead!” could just be the motto of the North Tonawanda family in whose driveway I saw this 1977 Continental Mark V, along with a 1989 Lincoln Town Car lurking behind it. No it wasn’t 25 years ago, but more like a summer or two back in time. The Town Car had already experienced a downsizing by 1989, but the Mark V in 1977 was still in its complete state of hugeness, and wouldn’t shed any inches until the arrival of the Mark VI in 1980. By then they started looking silly; or, sillier, depending on your point-of-view.
