This showed up on the curb in front of our house yesterday afternoon: a ’70s vintage (1977 is the closest match I can make) Lincoln Town Coupe, outfitted with The Club to foil joyriders and a variety of bedding, personal-care items and plastic utensils that suggested that this is someone’s rolling domicile. I was more than half-expecting someone to show up to sleep in it last night. Around 10:30 or so, we came back from a movie and there were a couple of pairs of shoes placed neatly outside the driver’s-side door; across the street, someone was puttering around a van I hadn’t seen before, which also looked like a live-in vehicle. I guessed that the two vehicles were related and went to talk to the van person. He told me he owned the Lincoln and intended to leave it in front of our house for a couple days but wouldn’t be sleeping in it. I asked him about the shoes , and he said he’d left those by mistake and went to pick them up. He left a few minutes later. The Lincoln remains on the curb this morning.

This car looks like it drove off the set for Goodfellas.
The two most important things for a wiseguy to remember…”Keep your mouth shut” and “Don’t say nothing to nobody.”
Congressman Jerry Lewis. Paging Congessman Lewis. Your limo is waiting.
As I was about to figure out some knee-slappingly choke-on-your-coffee fall-out-of-your-chair Jerry Lewis quote from the 60’s (but, really, were any of them that funny?), I decided to quick Google Congressman Jerry Lewis and discovered that there is a Congressman Jerry Lewis and he is in fact from California. So, I’ll just say, “Laaaaaa-deeees!” and go off wondering how jb could possibly know if Cong. Jerry Lewis drives a powder blue Lincoln.
Oh you gotta’ check out that hairdo he’s sporting. That alone shouts…Powder Blue Merc!
Hey Dan, maybe there’s some bag money in the trunk. You know, like that congressman, William Jefferson, who got pinched with 90 grand in his–how did that get there?–freezer.
