Image: 2006 Lincoln Town Car Packard Custom EditionBrowsing on The Facebook recently presented me with an astonishing feat of custom bodywork, one I felt compelled to share in a very special Custom Edition Picture Time Edition of Custom.

It’s a one-off modification of a 2006 Lincoln Town Car, and you need to see it.

That owner obviously hankered for days gone by, where one could purchase a grand Packard in the finest tradition of luxury and craftsmanship.

It’s important to keep in mind the amount of money spent on this custom fabrication.

I can’t.

Edit: H/t to commenter Dal20402, who dug up some information on the former attorney general owner in question.
