This Is The BEST Car You Can Buy With Your $600 STIMULUS Check

Stimulus checks are showing up in bank accounts across the country and you're gonna need to know what to spend it on (please just invest it). So I scoured the internet to find the best car I could buy for ROUGHLY $600. I ended up holding the keys to this 2001 Lincoln Continental and it's way better than I expected. Cool features like air suspension, adjustable steering force, and an Alpine system with a ride you don't find in modern cars adds up to a pretty great package. The boat drove home and now we can dig in and find out what's wrong with it (very little)!

$600 gets you a '93 Tempo, full of rust, and no engine or trans around here. The only thing powered a human can buy for that is a hoverboard.

So the engine in the car is a 4.6 "Basically"? I've heard of Romeo and Cleveland engine plants, but never heard of a Ford engine plant called "Basically". You Friggin' idiot!!

I had a black on black 2000 like this when i was in KCMO. Awesome car man. Heated leather and mirrors, sunroof, floor shifter, and air ride that actually still worked when i got it. I miss it. Edit: my trunk lock didnt work either i had to use the interior button to

This car in black on black gives me ptsd. I worked at a Lincoln dealer from ‘08 to ‘12 and the owner of the dealership drove a black one of these. Real tight-ass, no bs kind of dude, and when you saw this car pulling up or simply parked outside, you knew he was here and you knew you needed to look or be busy. Very odd guy, very well-off guy who owns a New Lincoln dealership... but he refused to ever upgrade his car even though it would be merely a signing of some paperwork to make it happen for him.

I wish I could find something like this. With all of the shaddy resellers around here you can't touch anything that is not absolute garbage for under 3 or 4 grand, not even from auto auctions. I did have someone who collected Buick LeSables who was going to sell me his v8 but his son who is a drug addict came over and set fire to all of his cars. Ugh. Then I found THREE different 80s firebirds at 3 different times, 2 the drivers took for one last ride a couple days before (one was drunk) and both crashed into trees and the 3rd was from the husband of a friend of a friend except two days before his neighbor decided to try cutting down a tree in his back yard and dropped it on the car. Everything else around here under 3 or 4 k is absolute TRASH. If I had better knowledge about cars and a way to tow I would be running out into the mid west and would trailer these cars back. I am ecstatic I found the 09 Sonata I have now that I just got for 6k because it is manual (autos sell for over 10k here) and only had just under 75k on it! THAT is a steal around here! I love these videos though because every once in a while the resellers will miss on a car like this I may be able to find especially with such a high over 60 population around me.

Had a 99 and 1 of the best cars I have driven. Got mine with 39k for $4,000 at estate sale. Ran it to just over 110k. Yours has 220k!! wow. Battery issues very common on this platform. Based on Ford Taurus transverse mounted this model/platform was manufactured in 2 body styles 97 to 99 / 2000 to 2001 like this. This tri-color paint is very easy to buff out and it's the same I had with the cream interior. Best driver really - you can drive this car 300 miles and not feel fatigue at all. Alternator at 85k / Batteries I think 3 - it chews up batteries / Water pump at 98k. Great car really. Thanks for sharing - one of my favorites but hard to work on with transverse motor. Intek never used oil on mine and ran beautifully. Transmission on these same as Taurus and can have issues if not serviced. Thanks for sharing...

Give it a strong dose of B-12 Chemtool Injector Cleaner or Seafoam. My 5.4L engines really liked that treatment. Also, clean the throttle butterfly - they tar up and stick. Or, a bad coil - they tended to go when they were a lot younger.

Just sold my 1998 Lincoln Continental with 183000 miles. A great car. I paid 1500 for mine and drove it for over three years. I put 50000 miles on it and all it needed was the basics. The air ride was great, the 4v 4.6 had some oomph and the options coupled with a modern stereo upgrade made it quite comfortable for its age. Mine had the JBL premium stereo option and with some subs it sounded awesome. They all have that misfire from the valve cover leaking. The windshield fluid hose is common. I now drive a 2006 A8. 70000 miles. And its awesome.

If you upgrade the radio, that one has a home waiting. I still run AM/FM/Cassette in all my vehicles and recently became in need of a this-style 2.5X face. There's virtually nothing decent left out here from mid-latter '90s. Incidentally, odds are cassette in a 2001 is most likely 2 or 3 years old off the plant's shelves. No auto manufacturer post 1999 was ordering any cassette-only units; they were busily dumping what they had left in inventory.

I bought one that looks identical to this for $1500. 121,000 miles and it was a Florida car. You should join the Lincoln Conti facebook group. The paint color is called Ivory Parchment. Be careful with burnouts or hard pulls, the AX4N automatic is glass with that 4.6. Also, best of luck with belts and pulleys. No space to work! Another Edit: the 5 digit keyless entry code from the factory is on a sticker found on the right trunk hinge, unless it was pulled off.
