You are in the Lincoln LS
What is this discussion about?

That is a bit of a pinhead statement to make.
Of course; I picked my handle with thought.
That said, since the LS is the only American car I've ever owned (my Eagle was built in Canada, to split hairs). I've owned nearly all foreign (is that word still OK?) cars over the years and am getting old enough that I'm not going to be buying many more cars of any kind. I buy and hold for 5-10+ years, and I don't see any American car today that I'd buy for myself or my wife, and don't see any on the horizon either. I occasionally point out to Allen that I'll be dead and gone before Lincoln builds another RWD car that can hold a candle to the LS, if they ever do.
It's sad that the only time I bought into the notion that an American car could compete with the Europeans, it ended up like this, but it did. They discontinued the manual transmission after 3 years, exactly when dozens (or more) improvements were made to solve teething problems. Then a few years later the whole experiment went down the glory hole.

There is a very strong rumor of a RWD coupe based on the mustang platform. I think it will take a couple of years if it is true but if it's executed as well as the MKC I think it will make the LS look like a Kia.

Are you guys able to close your air filter box all the way. I've never been able to get the bottom 3 teeth in slots.

Anyone out there remember the V8 cold air intake system that Brian Gowning sold? Had it since 2003 and now the smog inspection stations are looking for a sticker that says it is approved. This system has no identification plate on it nor a sticker so, I'm now going to need one from the manufacturer to get past the smog b.s.
It's funny, after so many "passed" you would think the state would extend the testing for those who do.
