watchdevil Buick is introducing the incredibly boring Cascada. Cadillac is expecting an ATS Convertible soon. The all new Camaro is on it's way with it's incredibly slick no stop convertible top with an automatic tonneau cover. There is the usual competition with BMW, Mercedes and Audi convertible models. It's long past time for Lincoln to offer a luxury convertible for all those people that want something more sophisticated and mature than a Mustang Convertible. The Lincoln Mark IX needs to come soon.

Andrew I couldn't agree more. I also feel the tire bump design detail should continue but only on the Mark Series please. For example, the beautiful Lincoln Continental Concept would not be a good candidate for the tire bump, IMHO. I love the full width tail lights but I wouldn't mind if Lincoln designers expanded on this design trait and gave us something new and exciting. 2b2 I believe you mentioned the "Opera Windows" from the past? Again IMHO, may they rest in peace, I'm not a fan.

N.R., I like your appreciation of the 1969 Lincoln Continental Coupe. My father's black 1969 Lincoln Continental sedan was my introduction to as a toddler, and facilitated my continued support of the Lincoln brand.

Sorry, I thought I read IV and V.

I thought the 60s Continental Coupe was so much better than the Mark III. It should have been a Mark.

The three things that bothered me the most on those two cars were the Rolls-Royce grilles, vinyl roofs, and the extremely long front overhangs. Everybody did the same thing when it came to design. I guess Lincoln couldn't take the peer pressure at the time.

I'm not sure which car you're referring to, Harry,
however
regardless of vehicle or Fwd/Rwd,
imhO electrification (Virtual-Awd) is a noteworthy alternative to mechanical-Awd and even more so in the (near)future

now I'm thinking that D6CD6 might be able to be the MusStang's nextgen platform as well

Other Marks had a more toned-down version of it that blended in better with the rest of the design.
