Porter, I remember that commercial very well. In fact, I bought a 1984 Lincoln Town Car because of that point of view. OK, so it was an electrical nightmare (just check out Consumer Reports....one of the few cars of that year with half or all whole black dots). But it was a good looking and nice riding car. Not top of the line but a nice roomy car, silver with red leather interior.
But after replacing way too many electrical sensors and components, I traded it in on a new 1990 Maxima GXE ; one of the best cars I have ever owned. Sigh.
