If you just get sent this link thinking you're about to read a regular car news story prepare to be surprised. With an opening line like "When choosing an armored vehicle, it's important to keep in mind how badly someone wants you dead," we were hooked. Now we know all about the 2005 Lincoln Town Car BPS (Ballistic Protection Series) and the fact that it can withstand armor piercing ammo and roadside bombs. The price tag isn't cheap at $144,995 as tested but at least we know what President Bush is going to get the new leaders of Iraq for an inauguration present.

Terrifically written piece too.
