Longest Cars of 1988

1988 Lincoln Town Car Cartier

Life is full of ironies, many of which go sadly overlooked. One ironic condition I tolerate—well, loathe, actually—is the fact that my new big screen TV requires a certain amount of boot-up time before I can watch anything. I find that excruciating, pre-entertainment pause a strange throwback to the era of mom “warming up” the set before the family would settle in to watch Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom.

1979 Cadillac

Cadillac’s DeVille and Fleetwood models only rank 5th on our list of the longest rides of 1979.

In this, the last installment of our “Hard to Park” series, we fully see the impact of downsizing on the overall lengths of some of our favorite Seventies machines. For 1979, Chrysler launched its redesigned “R-Body” sedans, each almost a foot shorter than the vehicles they replaced.

1977 Lincoln Continental, Longest Cars of 1977

Stretching 233.0 inches, the Lincoln Continental was one of the longest passenger vehicles of 1977.

A funny thing happened on the way to Eighties: Cars got shorter. The “shortening” of the American automobile didn’t happen all at once—it came in staggered bursts, as individual manufacturers downsized the platforms that underpinned their largest cars.

1973 Oldsmobile 98, Longest Sedans

Stretching 230.3 inches stem-to-stern, the Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight ranks 3rd on our list of the longest sedans of 1973.

As a follow up to our Hard to Park: The Longest Cars of 1975 blog post, we looked back two years further, to 1973. As it turns out, the average car on our 1973 list is almost an inch and a half shorter than those on our ’75 list (231.4 inches versus 232.9), but the longest single car is a ’73 model.

1975 Chrysler Imperial

At 232.7 inches end-to-end, the 1975 Chrysler Imperial ranks 4th on our longest cars list.

Presented here are federal guidelines for parking space design. One of the most noteworthy dimensions on the layout maybe the suggested length of a singe parking space: 20 feet.

Ford F-1000, What Was the Ford F-1000

Ford F-1000

Comparing pickup trucks to Hamburger Helper may seem like a stretch, but I beg your indulgence as I explain myself. Here goes: The main purpose of Hamburger Helper is to help costly ground beef go further, at less cost. Thus, a meal that might have involved the expense of a pound and a half of meat might require just a single pound once augmented by the sodium-packed filler material that generally retails for around $1.39 a box.
