The second vehicle is as DinkyDI described it as a tired looking Lincoln,But to me it was a Police Lincoln (and you all know i love a police car) well i have a mint civilian car which i will rob to make the police version up.

Nice score all round. Nice to see you finally get parts for a swap out on that Lincoln. The first Pictures I would leave the patena on the one and do the scrap yard or wrecking/towing yard diorama. Sitting with afew weeds growing here and there and a couple tires leaning up agains the side with a some boards on the hood. LOL so much you could do with it.

I agree with Jim, take the parts you need and make a great diorama from the other

They look great,  I would restore the Ford if you can the black one will look brilliant.

The patena on that Ford is really great. Looks like it's just been discovered after sitting years in the bush. Personally I'd leave as is and go for the diorama but it is your choice after all.
