Well, I did a thing.....

Last week, a guy who lives less than a mile from me wasn't paying attention, plowed into my legally parked and unoccupied Dodge, and subsequently pushed it into my neighbor's 2019 Honda Accord Sport that had 6 feet of space.
 Oh yes, my neighbor was actually in his Honda at the time to boot.  I'm actually hoping they don't total out the Dodge because there's no way I'll find another decent 4X4 at a reasonable price around here unless it's 20 years old or has a ridiculous amount of miles on it. 


Anyway, I'd been tossing around the idea of buying my friend's 89 LSC and we had discussed the topic a few days prior to the Dodge incident.  A price was negotiated and we both figured to do the transaction after the new year.  We sped up the time table due to the circumstances.


41K miles
Brand new rotors, calipers, pads, and accumulator with 150 miles on them when I got it.  3k miles on the transmission.  This car has been on here before Dave (My83T) owned it before my friend Mike.

Wish I could see the pic.  I always liked those cars.

sorry about your Dodge.  At least you weren't hurt.

Well if Dave owned it, we KNOW it's clean. Pictures of the damage to your Dodge?

 The paint on the driver's side and rear of the truck prior to this was legitimately 9.5/10 prior to this.

Sorry to see you got an unwanted present for the holidays.    Must have been a pretty hard glancing blow to push into the neighbors car.

I've always loved the Mark VII's, especially the LSC Special Edition ones. If I had the garage space, one would be parked next to my T-bird  :smile:  I recently drooled over this one....https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1991-lincoln-mark-vii-3/

The Special Editions were made in low volume and I believe will be collector cars someday.....it just may take another 20 years for that to happen.

Same here.

For fun, two of my close friends and I each put together a list of cars we would have in our dream garage if we were it hit the Power Ball and a 1992 Lincoln Mark VII LSC Special Edition in Garnet Red is one of the cars on my list.

Congrats on the purchase of the LSC.
Hope the repair of the Dodge works out for you.
