Throughout American automotive history the big three have gotten a good portion of the attention from enthusiasts and collectors, but most automakers actually put more effort into their sister-company offerings.
You only have to look as far as Lincoln and Ford to see that sometimes the better vehicle can be had by buying a car made by a subsidiary. Though Ford vehicles often drew more excitement from buyers, Lincoln was arguably the better choice. This is especially true of the 1989 Lincoln Town Car. It had all the makings of a true Luxury car but, with a 5.0-liter electronic fuel injected V8 engine and an automatic transmission with overdrive, it didn’t skimp on performance either. On top of this long list of excellent standard features, the Signature Series Town Car was reserved for buyers who only wanted the best of the best.
