The whitewall tires are a nice touch.

Brilliant!

I like that you do fun things with inappropriate vehicles. Can we be friends?

You should aim for records in a vehicle like that. Roll a tire off the rim? How much lean angle? Can you scrape hard parts? 20$ says you can't "drift" a 180° turn with that foot brake!

The door handles are the only thing keeping it from rolling over. That thing needs a kick stand.

I like the fact there are passengers in the car. Is there a record for number of people inside a vehicle during an autocross run?

It appears to be listing to starboard. Was there a prevailing wind or rough seas that day?

He should remove the rear doors, put the passengers in the back and have them lean out the sides to help level the car, like this

And now... the rest of the story....

The wife, my Brother-in-law, his girlfriend and two more of our freinds went to the Goodguys Heartland nationals in Des Moines Iowa, yesterday. Sunday is 'All american Sunday' so as long as it is american made or american powered it can get through the gates, as opposed to their normal '72 or older rule. We dicided to take the Lincoln because all six of us would fit and have room for a cooler and maybe a new windshield for the vette.

The Goodguy's autocross is open to any registered 'show' car that passes tech and you don't need a helmet, plus you can take as many passengers as you have seat belts. It was a good opportunity to 'base line' the yacht. We all had a roit and the crowd LOVED it... they were actually cheering us on!  photo L_IMG_4825s.jpg

The REALY cool thing that happened is that Al Unser Jr. Was there driving the Speedway motors Camaro.

He original parked one spot over from the Lincoln and we talked briefly.... he gave me props for attempting to autocross it and going to turn it into a 2017 challenge car!

Other than that the show good and the weather was great! Here are acouple things I thought you guys might like to see:

The Lincoln is awesome. My buddy went and autocrossed a '65 Parisienne a few years ago:
