    I love my 46 Ford Coupe "Fatty" but I just had to have a Mark II so I bought one this week. My wife asked me when I was going to sell "Fatty" to pay for it. I pretended not to hear her blasphemous remark, so what do I do now when, and we know she will.... pursue this insane argument? Suggestions Please :(

    Tell her you want to keep it for the grandchildren to ride around in one day because it's the only car you have with enough room for everyone to sit in safe and comfortably, AND since we already have it I won't have to go out and buy another one later.

    Sounds like YOU already made the choice; "but I just had to have a Mark II so I bought one this week." No suggestions here other than maybe "Fatty" would be better off in a garage where having new Chinese 'iron' wasn't such a temptation! Seriously, if you even suggested to the wife you'd sell your 'Fat Fender' to pay for the Mark II, you're on the hook for a solution. Good luck keeping all three; if you're not careful you might land up losing all three!

    Tell her the Mark really was suposed to be a mothers day gift for her, but you couldnt hide it under the bench. Or, put a teeeny little for sale sign on Fatty where it cant be seen asking 329,000 dollars.

    They are not making any more old cars like this. They are; however, making new women every single minute, of every single day, often more than one a minute.

    The 46 ford I have in my album is actualy my father in laws. My mother in law wants him to sell it, so it is in my garage, with the garage door shut, with a for sale sign on it for twice what the car is worth. Well, at least he tried------

    That is why my wife is a keeper. She already knew of my predilection for vintage synthesizers and cars and she is happy with it!!

    Pardon my ignorance, but what's a "Mark II"?

    Once you install a stainless exhaust system on that Mark II Continental you will have solved the biggest problem that the cars had when new.

    The Mark II is, in my book, in the Top Ten of the most beautiful factory American cars ever built.

  24. Every time I look at a car for sale, I think to myself... "Can I sleep in it?"
    Just in case my wife doesnt agree.

    Oh, a Lincoln Mark II. Well, if it were a four door, you could have passed it off as a "family car". Good luck . . .

    Mark IIs were not Lincolns. They were made by the short-lived Continental division of Ford Motor Company. The brand was Continental, the model was Mark II
