    Lightbulb Lincoln Town Car

    Well, it has been a while since I made my last post here. Had to focus on academic stuff (Logic mostly). Well, now I have 3 months of spare time to chop.

    Front was made longer with the wheels also moved forward to fit a massive 460 Cube V8. Rear headroom was inmensely increased, trunk was made longer too. Front bumper slightly lower. Made the windows more squared up too. There is a chrome strip that goes below the rear window that connects the chrome strips under the windows of each side.

    Hope you like it.

    Looks kinda weird... like it belongs in the 80's.

    ugly .. sorry ..

    the MKX can barely pull off that front .. the TC does not have the character of the MKX to carry it.

    I would say go with the MKZ front - make the cabin more "squarish" and reduce the overhangs .. especially upfront. Big NO to the cover of the rear wheel, and the vynil roof... and hte hump in the beltline .....

    there is actually no need for longer front - the cars already have HUGE engine compartment .. you can actually leave the front wheel where it is (on the original) and kill the front overhand, and you will still be able to fit ANY Ford engine in there.

    PS: on a secopnd thought if you tried to keep the current look, but completely eliminate the fron overhang to a BMW look - that culd fiw a lot of the issues.

    PS2: I am more and more realizeing that you might be going for an awkward retro look, while i am looking for a sleek modern look ... sorry if i am pushing you places you do not want to go.

    As for the second one - getting a Buick vibe from the back half - an Old Buick vibe. Tho that IS an original try at the front end. Personally I love the '60's Continental grille - just think the ONLY good application so far has been the Aviator Concept - wanna try that?

    Also here's another recent chop by Black Manta & where I found it. Since he's only showing a rear view, maybe just 'keep it in mind' when doing another of your own - Please DO more

    Ok, now all you need to do, is make a mafia version and a pimpmobile version. Oh, and a stretch limo one.
