A menacing, heavily modified ’71 Lincoln is the main character in “The Car,” and it was a machine everyone was afraid of. Although everybody had nightmares about this dangerous machine, the basis for it was ordinary (via Rotten Tomatoes).
It was an enormous boat of a car with a long hood, soft suspension, and a hefty 460 or 400 V8 up front. The vehicle had every possible convenience option and was a typical cruiser of the day. However, for Lincolns like this, days were numbered due to the fuel crisis in the late ’70s.
