What does a lincoln towncar enthusiast make for his living room with a spare panther platform engine block?

A coffee table of course.

Here's the car to pull the engine from

That connecting rod shouldn't have poked a hole through the side of the engine block

A test fit of the pistons to hold the glass top

After hot-tanking the block to clean off the old grease

And painting the pistons

Fitting the legs that will hold the block off of the floor

The front of the engine block after painting

The rear of the engine block after painting.

That aluminum rear main seal retainer sure shined up nice after a little cleaning.
