Wasn't the Zephyr an upgraded Fairmont back in the day of "shoe-box semi family econo box" cars? Yea any of those Lincolns & Mercs remind me too of "old fart" boats.
Kind of like the old men who drive around in latest "police car" look alikes. Those old boys give me the creeps. You don't know if their driving them to get a break if a cop stops them or they like slowing traffic down because they look like an unmarked.
