gep10 5pts Thank you for this story. A 1954 Lincoln Capri was my first car; I drove it all through high school. I used to take this car up into the mountains I lived in and push it hard on the winding roads. It was a surprisingly competent handling vehicle as Bill Stroppe and his Mexican Road Race team drivers proved by dominating their class. The car was well balnced in terms of power vs. handling; a very early (large) sports sedan. Compared to my buddies 55 - 57 Chevys I would pick the Lincoln every time for all around driving enjoyment. This car played a key role in getting me hooked on chassis dynamics and starting out my career as a Chassis Development engineer at GM.
