Click above for gallery of the Lincoln Town Car(nage)

When is a 1996 Lincoln Town Car with 114,000 miles on the clock worth $15,098? The correct answer should be never. In this case, however, the answer is when someone supposedly drops $45,000 worth of work into one to make a fake Bentley Arnage. The result is what you see above; add a couple of fender-mounted chandeliers and it could score a role as The Duke's car in Escape From New York. That giant C-pillar is more Rolls than Bentley and those chrome dubs are more bad than good. The biggest disaster comes into view when you open the door and look inside. That interior reportedly cost $10,000. You'd think that amount would buy more than quilted leather, a passel of winged-B emblems that aren't fooling anybody, and that stock instrument panel, but apparently... no. Anyway, somebody liked it enough to buy it, so what do we know. We're sure it'll look great in their garage. You know – right next to the Fierarri.

      Is that Car(nage) as in C(Arnage) or as in carnage. Yes. There is a difference.

      yikes.
        • 6 Years Ago

        I think it's "F(unny)" regardless! Figuring this isn't college thesis or the instructions to make the cure for cancer....

        I agree- there is more than one definition to this amount of suckage.

      Exterior looks okay, and would fool even a well seazoned eye. The interior is quite overdone though - would have been far more believable if it did not have the Bentley sign pasted on every possible corner.

      Haha. I like it, actually.

      Town Cars are not bad cars. Ford just should have not been stupid and let it languish. They should have had an all-new one (built in the same style, big, full frame, V-8, & rear drive) at least in the mid nineties, and certainly at least 5 years ago, and be bringing out a new body and restyled interior for '09 on top of that new chassis.


      This conversion is not bad. I have nothing against bulding copies of European exotics on more affordable platforme. Hey, not everyone is rich you know. Of course, people here would be their usual snobby, stick in the mud selfs and hate this car and the whole concept. For pete's sake LIGHTEN UP!

      These same people hate the Town Car just because it is big. That is a really stupid reason to hate a car.

      Why?

      I honestly don't understand. Porque?

      That's just Wroong!
      • 6 Years Ago
      Oh, that's the worst looking thing I ever saw. I bet if you bought that you got a free cup of soup!

      Looks decent, just the interior.....
      • 6 Years Ago
      Why do people insist on doing this?

      My favorite has to be the interior "wood grain" that doesn't match. $10,000 interior....couldn't spend a couple extra hundred to get a matching wood kit?

      At first it would seem the ride of a "elitist" but when u get closer u realize that even a junior high graduate like myself could rent to own it.

      Wow, I think it would have been cheaper to buy a old Bently then do that, wow thats alot of work, and still doesn't look right.
