This was a top-of-the-line luxury land yacht when it was new--and probably cost someone quite a bit of money in 1976. That's what makes it so fascinating though. It's now just another old hunk of metal, slowly degrading, without much hope of being saved. The 8th generation 98, produced from 1971-'76 was the biggest yet, and was produced at a time when luxury was judged by how many loops the "brougham" badge had. This car has some of the best patina I've ever taken pictures of (click on the "extreme patina" tag to see more), with amazingly faded paint.
