1966 Lincoln Coupe Getting Air

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by 66Coupe, Jun 8, 2010.

  1. That's the British spelling.
     
  2. And this is a Global site.

    Do you have a problem with that?:)

    By the way Richard. Love your Avatar Car..

    I had one of those 2 doors... sold it to a destruction derby guy about an hour after I listed it on Craigs list. right after he left another destruction derby guy called to buy it. must be very popular in that world.

    nothing traditional about that car. not even close.

    Give me a break. What the hell is wrong with you "traditionalists"? Isnt this an automotive hobby that we all enjoy ? Get over being "traditional" its about what we like. I unbderstand this is a traditionally geared site but come on, i bet 80% of the cars on here are not traditional !

    I read this thread yesterday and its still going? I love the car I would definately roll it! I had a 68 Impala 70's period lowrider (whiteboy style) and it was not accepted here due to the YOM. Sure everyone loved it but the HAMB was not the place for it so I spent my time online here http://losboulevardos.com/main.html. The Lincoln is bagged (which pisses off HAMB'rs) and to new. They had to draw the line somewhere! It would be like showing pics of your cat on a dog forum, sure its cute but its not the place for it. I'm a retired mini trucker as well, so welcome and have fun!!

    First I have to say the car looks AWESOME! The fabrication work looks super clean and it is clear that you are paying attention to detail and building a nice car!

    Second I am definitely with you on AccuAir's products. I think that there are a lot of people who don't like air suspension because the only experience they have with it is a car with switches and gauges. If more people could go for a ride in a car with a nice air suspension system there would be a lot more cars on airbags. I am about to put air on my 57 F100 and WILL be using an AccuAir setup on it.

    Last I have to say the "Are airbags traditional" debate isn't really a debate. Airbags have been on vehicles since at least the early 40's. They were pretty much the same thing that they are today. I understand that some feel that this car is too new but he is building the car in a very "traditional" EARLY sixties style. I love traditional style cars, trucks, sleds, and gassers and would say there are definitely cars that don't belong on air. That is still only MY opinion. As somebody said earlier in the thread a fiberglass 32 is obviously not traditional but it is built in a traditional style. I think the car looks great and seems to be built right, which is nice to see.

    I have to put this magazine article on here to show airbags are not exactly new technology. Check out the date in the middle at the bottom. June-July 1958!
