Highway Cruiser doing it's thing http:www.highwaytripbooks.com
A blog about roadworthy classics on America's old highways.
Much has gone into the '89 Town Car for its new life as a long distance highway cruiser, and here is where all the work pays off! On a recent Palm Desert-Las Vegas-Palm Desert trip, it was driven sanely and produced an impressive 26 mpg on the open highway trip segments. Long distance cruising in a Lincoln Town Car - highway travel at it's best.
The '89 town Car's front seat leather is sun-damaged and the rear seat is not far behind. So I opted to protecting and preserve the leather seats with these custom fitted and professionally installed fabric seat covers. They're look is uninspiring compared to the Lincoln Town Car's original leather, but they're a lot more comfortable on a hot day! If a subsequent owner chooses to replace the sun-damaged leather, so be it.
Save weight and improve engine economy (or performance) with this LEGAL dual exhaust setup on a 1989 Lincoln Town Car highway cruiser. It didn't come from the factory this way but it is very possible because the Town Car's 302 Ford engine has stock a catalytic converter serving each bank of cylinders - left and right. LEGAL dual exhausts, efficient mufflers and short tailpipes are a great way to get better fuel economy, or 10 more horsepower, for a modest one-time cost.
What do you do with a damaged leather interior? Replace it or cover it were my choices so I decided to cover and protect it with fitted fabric seat covers. Fabric will preserve what lies beneath and it's much more comfortable on a hot day. What do you do if your classic luxury car doesn't have cup holders? Add an after-market center console!
