About “Babysride”

The wife and I bought the car as transportation for our daughter. Hince the name "Babysride".

The Lincoln LS was designed by Jaguar. It shares the same platform with the Jaguar S-Type. The S-Type did get the larger 4.0 supercharge v8. Unfortunately, it is impossible to swap the S-Type motor into the LS. Jaguar designed the LS electronics to make it impossible.

Over the year, I have landed 9 sponsors for the car:
Killer Glass
Dunlop tires
Street FX
Gina window tint
Power Stop brakes
Stoner Detailing Products
RAZZI Ground Effects
Extreme Deminsions

Some of the larger more notable shows I have competed in and won. I won my class('95-Present Hardtop Conservative) in World of Wheels St Louis '06. I took second in NOPI St Louis '06 and took first NOPI St Louis '07. Win "Best of Show" at Ball4Real St Louis '07. Three larger shows I showed in were Hot Import Nights Indy '06, Hot Import Nights Chicago Nightshift '06, & DUBS St Louis '07.
