It is for sale because people buy it. It's ends production in about two months anyway, so don't get your panties in a bunch over it. For it's target audience, it was a good car.

Was the target audience idiots? Lexus makes plenty comfy for around the same price.

Lincoln Town cars are primarily driven by the over 60 "buy American" crowd.

And they are no bigger idiots than folks that would buy a Tahoe with a Cadillac wreath slapped on it.

that's a ripoff! I paid $41k with extended warranty on mine, I think it's holding value pretty well. I'm going to trade this straight up for a 911 this weekend

Reminds me of my 1969 Olds 98. It was one hell of a sweet car. Looked just like this one http://www.usedcarslewistonid.com/19...ewiston-ID-555 but in a sand color. With a 455ci engine it was a gas hog but it was fast and smoooooth! My wife never did get the takeoff down and would almost always boil one tire when the light changed and then turn red when other people looked at her. It's the one car I wish I still had.

Made a lot of great memories in the back seat of that car.

That's hilarious. They must not be losing any customers to not want to update it. I mean, c'mon, they could easily put the 5.0 or the TT 3.5 in there.

Well to be honest NYC cabs (and cops) have been switching to other cars for quite some time now. We have Altimas, Malibus, Priuses, Escapes, even Siennas as cabs now (except Escape and Sienna).
But these motherfuckers are still all over the place.

Shit, even now I just looked out of the window and for every Escape there are five Town Cars

In nyc if you are a VIP and you want to blend in you get a town car. If you get a tlc license and want to drive a car service its going to be in a towncar. They run for 200k require only basic maintenance and parts are extremely cheap and easy to acquire.
