I guess I had forgotten about it. I certainly won't lose track of it. My "parts dept." has been growing at a pretty good rate lately. Not sure what the previous owner used it for. Seems scary to me to tow anything with a convertible. My "Green Machine" has a hitch as well that was previously mounted on my titanium car. The owner of that car before me used to tow a jet ski with it.

I will try and get some photos of the hitches soon but of course both cars are backed in at the moment. I will post them in the towing thread. I believe in the towing thread there are photos of my "Greenie" towing a Black SE on a tow dolly. It wasn't my first choice for a tow vehicle but it was my only option at the time and it did quite well. 8-)

Hi I love your black mark vii, car looks amazing. Could you give me a little info about your tires and rims as I would like to get a set for my 1992 Lincoln mark vii special edition.
Thanks,
Martin
