Stuart Skelton, this site’s official opera ambassador, emails from sunny Tel Aviv:

Just followed your link to Iowahawk’s Virtual Cruise for Earthweek, and had to send you this pic:

Stuart and his wife will shortly be relocating to Florida, hence the need for some serious Lincoln cool:

So I’m doing a little online automobile searching and I find this dealer of fine American automotive know-how and I imagine myself and the lovely one cruising beachside Florida, raping Gaia as we go.

You gotta know, I MUST have this car. Already talked to the guy, so we shall see.

Stuart visits Sydney later this year prior to his Florida move; performance dates and ticket details to follow.

    1. Put bullethole decals on it and that barge is perfect for Miami.

    1. I hope he gets a gig in the NY area; I’ll be there in a flash.

    1. My stepfather had one of those (in the ‘80’s).

      When I drove it, occassionally people would offer to buy it at stoplights.

    1. Opera, eh? Mr. Skelton actually sounds like a true rapper, because those awesome slabside suicide-door 60’s Continentals are all the rage among the hip-hop and pro athlete community…

      Here’s the Denver Nuggets’ Carmelo Anthony with his ‘64

      Jacksonville Jaguar Byron Leftwich and his ‘67 convertible

      Tim – if you opera pal gets that car, have him contact me. I can get that badass box pimped out rollin’ OG style – 27s on vogues, with 4000 watt subwoofers to blast that Verdi.

    1. Day-um! Suicide doors ‘n everything!

    1. Verdi? Don’t get me wrong, I love Verdi.

      But with all due respect what must be blasted is Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries.

    1. Oh boy, does that take me back. My dad was a sales executive in the Lincoln/Mercury division of Ford (he later owned his own dealership) and we had a new Lincoln every six months. Dad always had a white-on-white convertible for summer and the summer he worked in DC, the Kennedy administration borrowed his car from time to time for presidential motorcades as JFK shared his preference for white-on-white Continental convertibles (he was riding a Lincoln, albeit a black one, the day he was assassinated). I would love to have that car. Enjoy, Mr. Skelton. I envy you.

    1. Hey, isn’t that the car that the construction company gave when Gomer Pyle stupidly parked Sgt. Carter’s junker under a wrecking ball?  Under a freaking wrecking ball.  How stupid can you be when you’re a buck private Marine, in the middle of the Vietnam War, and you park your sergeant’s waxed up auto under a wrecking ball?  I thought Carter should have riddled Gomer with an M-16 for that, regardless of whether he got a new car out of it or not.  I know I would if MarkL parked Karl’s limo under a wrecking ball.  Hmmm, maybe I should begin reminding him not to do that.

      Yep, it sure looks like it.

    1. Nice car.  I wondered if there were any CDs, so I googled it, and yes, there is one.  Unfortunately, it’s a super-audio CD at $72.  It’s the Valkyrie one too.  Dang.

    1. Shame, Mr Bingley.

      Don’t listen to him, Stuart. Now, I’ve decided I’m not above humbly begging, as a fellow RWDB blog member, for free tickets please to your Hamburg performance. As conservatives don’t give out freebies, I offer up my continued entertainment as frequent commentor on Tim Blair as payment.

      (Beggars don’t get banned here, do they Andrea?)

    1. As for Ride of the Valkyries,I can’t imagine anything else going better with the immage of all those gorgeous, nubile, fierce, pumped-up young female warchicks on flying horses descending from above to wage death and destruction on some hapless group of moonbats, can you?

    1. 430 cubic inch V-8, as I recall. 340 horsepower, by the inflated standards of the era. 0 to 60 in about 12 seconds. Watching the top go up or down will put a smile on anyone’s face, but it does pretty much fill up the trunk.

    1. That’s one prediction about the future I wish had come true: being able to buy automobiles with body style on-demand.  So, I could buy a new Lincoln with a 1961 body, if I wanted.

    1. It’s a do it car!

    1. I dated a guy with a Lincoln like that.  We would drive around in midwinter with the top down and the heater going full blast.

      The top was hydraulic – most excellently cool.

    1. Suicide doors are just so neat. Make sure to stay away from grassy knolls however.

    1. As well as the ever favourite “Ride of the Valkyrie” a RWDB playlist for the “classical” Lincoln’s giant speakers:

      “Mars, Bringer of War”, Holst
      “Battle at Poltava”, Tchaikovsky,
      “Night on Bare Mountain”, Mussorgsky.

      The old Russians do really good Battle Music, plenty more from Rimsky Korsakov as well.

    1. One cannot judge ‘Lohengrin’ from a first hearing, and I certainly do not intend to hear it a second time. – Rossini

      Richard Wagner was a musician who wrote music which is better than it sounds. – Mark Twain

      I like Wagner’s music better than anybody’s. It is so loud that one can talk the whole time. – Oscar Wilde
