Default Hey All!

Ive been a denizen over on Overclock.net(Sister site if im not mistaken) for a few years now, and at the ripe old age of 22 I have decided to take my interest in cars where my life long interest in computers took me.

To the internet.

Ill FINALLY be buying my first car in a few months('79 Lincoln Town Car with 30k miles), and I figure it cant hurt to learn more about them than I already know.
Which is to say, more than the average person, but nowhere near enough to claim to know anything worthwhile.

So....yeah!
I look forward to learning a ton and making a ton of new friends!

Welcome to the forums.

The 79 LTC with such low mileage for it's year kind of sticks out. Do you know the owner personally?

Yup. Family friend.

It was literally a "Groceries and Church on Sunday" car for her mom before it had a minor cosmetic adjustment. Still runs like a champ though.
