I have owned many Lincoln Towncars-I retired an 87 with over 250,000 miles and a 96 with over 300,000 miles. Currently I have a 99 with 170,000 miles and a97 with sover 250,000 miles, as well as a 69 Continental. I was very distressed to see that the Towncar is discontinued effective in 2012. I drive 500-1000 miles a week and rely on the safety, comfort and dependability of my Towncars. I can’t imagine owning any other vehicle type. I have test driven the new vehicles in the Lincoln line, and, honestly find I don’t like any of them. As a stockholder and dedicated Lincoln owner, I would love to see Ford bring back the Towncar for 2013. Towncars are the most comfortable, safest and most reliable cars I have ever owned. I was rear-ended by a large truck last year and was still able to drive my car home and had non-severe injuries because of the sturdy construction. I never worry about breaking down or having disabling car trouble in my towncars. Ford, PLEASE bring them back in 2013.
