It's back...2006 Lincoln Zephyr!

Recommended Posts

Wow. Rolf go back and read your own posts. You are nuts! grin.gif

Time for the medication to be turned up a notch.

Speaking of which, did you ever get your eyes zapped? Didn't sound like fun

but haven't heard you say anything about it lately except the part numbers

were running together at night.

Remember Rolf, deep even breathes, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,15,18,29,38,27,51

What is your problem Dave?? I will list just a few Ford part numbers that are used on Lincoln Zephyrs, can give the page numbers in the catalog if you think I am making them up, here goes;

68-7113 cluster gear, used in '36-'39 LZ's, a '36 Ford number

48-7005 transmission case, for 36 and 37 LZ's, '35 Ford number

78-7005 transmission case, also for '36 and '37 LZ's, '37 Ford number

50-4209 Gear and pinion assy (rear axle) 4:33 ratio used in '36 LZ, later went to LZ unit with 4:44 ratio, this one is '35 Ford commercial number

91A-2140, Master cylinder used on LZ '39-'48, '39 Ford number

There are many more Dave, but as you say, I am weary, and I think I have made my point, and even with your definite diagnosis of my mental affliction, I am still on the loose, as far as my previous posts, I think I can document everything I said on here, let me know what you disagree with, Rolf

Well for starters, I never, repeat <span style="font-weight: bold">never</span> asked about like numbers used on Fords and Zephyrs. I don't own a Zephyr. That was Cecil I believe. Now as to what point you have made to me is unclear except that you are arguing with yourself about part numbers and even offering to document to me stuff I don't care about or ever asked about. I would never accuse you of making up stuff or disagreeing with you on stuff I simply have zero interest in. Now, do you feel better about showing me what's what with 37 Zephyrs and Fords of varying years? If I ever have use of this information which at the present time is useless to me, I will search this forum and know that you have done an excellent job of showing me a thing or two, and teaching me how to read a parts catalog.

In other words Rolf, what the Hell are you talking about?

"Yes and you enlightened, intelligent voters in Florida, can go right ahead and elect Harley Earl as president or something, with the states present leadership, anything is possible." Rolf

This coming from someone in California, ya. I'll be bauck. Talk about enlightened and intelligent. I think you all had a Total Recall or was that a movie with the Gov?

Yes Dave, California politics is almost as idiotic as this thread is getting, if you have no interest in Lincolns or Zephyrs, why pray are you not over on the Buick or Cadillac site, they adore chrome plated slabs on the quarter panels, and fishtails and portholes and straight eights, and God knows what, because they are Harvey Earl people like you, sorry as hell to have bored you with all this talk about Zephyr stuff on the Lincoln Zephyr site, if any of the rest of you feel the same way, I am out of here, let me know, Rolf

Rolf, you are now getting boring. Did I say I had no interest in Lincolns or Zephrys? No. I said I had no interest in like part numbers from Ford and 1937 Zephyrs. Why are you being such an Ass? I mention a post that got lost in cyber space that had tidbits of this and that and mention Harley Earl once, not Harvey Earl, don't know who that would be. Did Harley steal your girlfriend or something in high school? If you want to fight about what I say at least have the decency to quote what I say not some BS about me not having an interest in Lincolns and Zephyrs.

You have been a thorn since I joined this forum and the LZOC. While others welcomed me and put up with my naive questions and lack of Lincon knowledge by advising and helping,which is why I would assume many come here - to learn - you have been rude, snobish, having a better than everyone else and smarter than everyone else attitude. Others on this forum continually apologize for you saying don't mind Rolf, he means no harm... that's just Rolf being Rolf, he can be very helpful and knowledgable if you can get around how he says it. I have received more personal messages from others trying to explain you away than any other subject by far.

I have tried to mend fences with you before, I will not do that again. Please miss quote me all you want as I will no longer reply or refer to any post you make.

Dave

IMHO, Lincoln should use a new name for the "Toyo-Kogo Industries" (Mazda) project. Zephyr was nearly destroyed by hanging it on the Fairmont platform and calling it a Mercury. If Zephyr is to be re-used, use it on a design originating here. Style, comfort, and value for the every-man, as the original groundbreaking design in '36. This will never happen, thanks to our iron fisted (becoming socialist) government. CAFE standards, safety standards, etc. however noble in intent have destroyed the US auto industry. There is not much innovative design out there. technological advances? sure, but beauty in form? nope. Look across any big parking lot. Every one of the cars parked there sort of blends into the next. It makes me wonder if the big design decision is "gee, this program only gives me the options for [flat black], [paint to match], [pseudo brushed aluminium] or [none] in the trim pull-down menu?????...... I'll pick [flat black] this time." Computer design is fine for the structural stresses, steering and suspension geometry etc. but for pure beauty..... forget it, the designs no longer have the personal touch, the soul of the designers.

Bottom line, save the Zephyr name for another project. A better name for the Mazda would be "Cosmopolitan"
