POTM December 2020 - WSTRLNG's 2006 Town Car Limo
2006 Lincoln Town Car Executive Limo
6-DOOR 46" stretch with 3 full bench seats.
77K miles on it and rides like a couch on a cloud.
Looks completely FACTORY (except for the 2 extra doors LOL)
Bought it sight-unseen. Was an airport limo in the L.A. area until it went to auciton and ended up in northern CA.
I am guessing that the dealer dumped it because the Limo company failed to list it as INOP and it accrued registration fees that the next buyer would be responsible for.
I think the dealer in Oregon figured nobody would know about the DMV fees as it's being sold in Oregon. Funny how it ended up back in California after all.
I managed to ARGUE my way with DMV to see that the car had not been driven for a year and that it was in a dealers possesion. They removed the previous year's registration fees.
I HATE DMV!!!
It was picked up in Medford, OR by a dealer. He had hoped for a quick sale at $9,995. He did maintenance, new tires and re-charged the A/C. THEN COVID-19 hit and he had ZERO lookers on the car.
I found it on Facebook Marketplace for just under $6K and it sat in my mind for over a week. I HAD TO GET IT... But HOW?
After I contacted the dealer and him realizing I had been in the car business, he told me he had just listed it on Craigslist for $5,750 and was cutting his losses.
I asked him to hold it but he wouldn't until I showed him proof I was buying it. I bought a ONE-WAY ticket on Alaska Airlines to Medford, OR and sent him the confirmation. BAM!
I got off work around 10pm on a Tues. I drove to the San Jose airport and TRIED to rest, but couldn't. 7am, I was in the air. I landed in Medford (after a stop in Portland) at 10:15 am and was picked up by the dealer in the limo.
I looked over the car and paid CASH.
I drove straight back and by 7 pm the SAME DAY, I was back in Salinas, CA and a day later, got a ride to San Jose to get the Crown Victoria back home.
