I'm still fighting with a vacuum leak,.............does anybody have access to a vacuum diagram for the 1976 Lincoln Continental? It is not the same as the Mark IV according to a few web sites, but I do not know for sure.

I have found one for a 1978, but that is not the same either.


The motor runs pretty good now, above about 1000 RPM, but as soon as it drops under it wants to die/stall out.


I'm trying to get it ready for a Car show this weekend in Cedar Springs.

The above was the only identification number on the tag. The tag did not look like your example.

The Previous owner gave me a set of "Like new" 1976 license plates.

Has anybody gone through the process of getting an "Authentic License Plate" on their antique vehicle? Is it true that you can only drive the vehicle in parades, car shows, and to swap meets with this type of licensing? (not as a cruising vehicle to the ice cream store).

I had one on my 73 and 67 Novas, was good for life or until it sold. A copy of the plate you want to use and a proof of ins and whatever they want to add it and you're good. Last I knew it was $30 but that was several years ago.

FYI - AAA insurance vs Haggerty, Haggerty beat AAA by $700 per year, with better coverage.
AAA pretty much told me that they do not want to cover any Classics or modified vehicles.

I had the same obscene numbers from AAA when I wanted to add my XJ. I took everything to State Farm. AAA wanted $600 just for the Jeep plus my truck which they already had. I went to SF for mid $400 PLPD for both for 6 months.

Now I'm being told to check out Grundy Insurance...............yikes, who knew a classic car could be this much of a headache.

Looking at buying some new shoes..........always been fond of baby moon hubcaps. Still want to keep the price at a minimum, but make it safe to drive on our roads.
Thinking about one of these styles with either all chrome or Red rims to match the interior:

I had a 79 and a 75. Great cars, wish I never sold the 75 a few years ago
He is a picture of the 75 with spoke bolt on wheels with white walls. I had 150 spoke knock offs, but I liked the classic ole G look of the spoke bolt on rims.
