My First Lincoln

Hey to all. This is my first Lincoln. We went with the MKC Select, Luxe Metallic with the white sand and Expresso interior. I hope to learn more about this car via this site and where I can source some accessories for me and the car. My internet search has shown there is not a lot out there for the Lincoln brand.

I'm still learning about the features of the MKC but so far I am very pleased with the car.

So ya'll help keep me in line til I learn the lay of the land here and forgive any dumb or obvious questions I may ask.

Congratulations. The MKC is my first Lincoln also. Growing up my dad had a '72 Town Car and a '78 Town Car. I'm sure he could store a lot more in the trunks of those cars than can fit in my MKC :-) I know he and his buddies would go on golf trips so there would be 4 men, 4 sets of golf clubs plus their luggage and there was still room to spare.

Second Lincoln here. My first was this 2000 LS V6 Sport 5 speed. Yes, this was not a commercial hit (only about 3000 ever built with the Getrag box), but what a nice car.
This shot was taken at a local road course where my son and I were having driver training. She got around very well.
Had this car in the family 15 years.

Thanks for the welcome. I'll get up to speed with signs and avatars in the next few days. No Lincoln dealership here in Carrollton, Ga. so I have yet to see another MKC in our area. To answer one of the questions, mine is a 2016.

My last new car was a 2003 Durango so the increase in technology in cars today is amazing to me. Heck, I even had to trade in my non-blue tooth flip phone to be able to link to the Sync3 system. My son calls me Analog Man in a digital world and I started to use that as my handle but I am ThunderBubba over on Thunderbirdnest.com so I just stuck with that. I'm still going through old threads to find answers to questions but I will be posting regularly.
