Anyone know anything about the Lincoln LS Sport V8? I've seen them one to two years used with low mileage going in the mid $20's. Not quite a BMW but damn close for the money. The Jag S-Type I believe shares the same platform. I've never owned a Ford product though, and I am worried about quality. But in terms of this car I don't it fits within the standard relm of Ford automobiles. I REALLY like this car.. at least from seeing it around and on the internet.
My father-in-law has a 2000 TL (not the Type S) that is very nice, but it to me it comes off as rather plain. It rides excellently and will definitely get down the road, but its looks don't do anything for me.
Cadillac... now that's a car. The STS is a now a World Class car, and I'd love to have one. Everyone else seems to think so as well (there are a lot of them around here). I'd have to drive one to see what it's like (haven't sat in any of the new ones).
I don't really care to much for the CTS. It just looks a bit strange to me PLUS it's not even a year old yet. I'd like to see it in a couple years.
The Bonneville doesn't do anything for me. I liked the previous generation much more than this one. This one looks a little too wild for my tastes. As far as GM is concerned I think the Vette and a Cadillac are the only cars I would consider.
