OK... I'm going to ask you guys for advice on cars i'm looking at and have already driven. I'm a college student, junior, in need of a car. My budget is ~$ 2000, the lower the better - more money for beer! Car 1: MY93 Thunderbird, maroon, maroon inside (blech!), 3.8L Auto V6. I drove this car, and it didn't give any problems, and felt reasonable powerful. Cost = $ 2300, hopefully able to bargain down to below $ 2000. 138,000 miles. Car 2: MY90 Lincoln Continental, some dark color, 3.8L V6, auto. Now, i wasn't able to drive this car (dead battery), but at $ 1250 advertised, i think it is a good deal - the KBB value for this car is > $ 4000. 96,000 miles. What do you guys think? Are there any specific issues with either cars i should check out before buying? The T-bird is nice, but the Lincoln is a darn sight cheaper (plus i'll get less cops pulling me over! ).
