Lincoln Continental Became a Car of Death

We all have seen what fans can make to their beloved car, but believe us, sometimes they can go too far with their imagination, that the whole auto concern goes in a big “Huh”, when they see their child turned into something strange, if not to say more. On one sunny day this summer I got a call from a dear friend of mine, who promised to show me something outrageous he found lately on the eBay. I came to him in no time and guess what I saw? A great and gallant Lincoln Continental turned into a Car of Death.

The history of the car is this – in 1978 on the cinema screens in the United States there was the picture “Animal House” with John Belushi in the title role running. And in the 2008 the Death Car from that film appeared on the auction called eBay. Unfortunately, this fun vehicle with a horrible name was not filmed in the movie in ’78, but the car is quite an exact copy of the real one.

Like the original, this deathcar is based on a Lincoln Continental from 1960. A copy saved all the “options” of the car of death – a large tower on the site of the cabin, painted fangs and red eyes. The car is sold on the auction and it is interesting how much people are ready to give for it. Maybe some Lincoln and movie lovers will buy it for a fortune.
