Albany-- The glory days for one of America's most popular luxury sedans may be numbered. Ford Motor Company announced plans to close its Michigan plant that makes the famous Lincoln Town Car.

The company made no committment to continue production of the Town Car past the 2007 model year. That has many loyal Town Car owners wondering what the future may hold for the sedan.

"I was a die hard Town Car man all my life, but they lost their touch back in 1998 when they changed from this body style to the new style. They put everything to much together, everything looks like the same thing"said Town Car owner Jack stone. 

Town Car sales slowed to about 47,000 in 2005, way down from 147,000 in 1990.
