Last year was the first year since 2009 that I didn’t attend the Washington Auto Show; ironic because I skipped it to go out and actually buy a new car (the most valid reason you could give, if you ask me). Needless to say, even though I was content to fall absent last year given my reason, I was excited to explore…
This morning I woke up from a dream in which I was in an old Lincoln Continental with two guys dressed like presidential candidates (blue suits, red, white, and blue striped ties) who would smash into things and then blame each other. Somehow I think that is a pretty strong metaphor for the electoral process and…
This past weekend the TUDOR series returned to beautiful northwest Connecticut and the historic 1.5 mile “bull ring” of Lime Rock Park for the North East Grand Prix. Friday was a combination of practice and qualifying for the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge and United Sports Car series with the main events…
While closing up for work today we moved in the first cars for tomorrow morning. I couldn’t pass up a shot of the vast contrast of a 1972 MG Midget parked beside a 1966 Lincoln Continental. And yes that is another Continental in the background.
Just take Track Pack GT, rebadge, class it the F**K up (with REAL premium design and materials not the usual Lincoln dress-up kit), write Cougar (or CougarMK or MKougarZ or whatever) on the back, and BAM! Instant 911 competitor. They need not waste their time on these anymore:
At last year’s New York International Auto Show, Lincoln’s was arguably the best looking display. They built a beautiful brand statement – elegant, upscale, sexy, pleasantly retro – and then filled it with the most forgettable cars you’ve ever seen. Look at this line up and then tell me that you could muster up a…
2002 was the last time we saw the Continental from Lincoln, in retrospect it was a handsome sporty looking granny pusher,technically it was a Stretched Taurus. Replaced in spirit by the Taurus based Mark-S (Shh, I can call it what I want).
The new one...
After taking a good look at the Continental concept I can't help but see lots of the Audi Prologue concept when looking at the rear shot. Lots of the details match and I am betting once we see them in a matching color they will look even closer together.
This is wallpaper worthy
Considering the dramatic rebirth Ford has undergone in the last decade, Lincoln’s comparative lack of direction is pretty surprising. Maybe, though, this new Lincoln Continental Concept represents the re-discovery of something Lincoln’s so desperately needed: an identity.
You may have seen how Patrick George wrote the other day of a mystery website with information on an upcoming Lincoln Continental. As usual, as soon as the link was published, the site went down. After looking through some of the Lincoln beta sites we stumbled upon this site: …
Ford to show off Lincoln Continental Production Concept at NYC
Saw this at our local hot dog joint! If you're a local its Ted's on Transit in Depew. Didn't get a glimpse of the owner though. sorry my potato potated
In my fourth quarter at South Seattle's Aerospace Maintenance Technology school, I just finished giving an ancient motor a makeover, rebuilding everything around the engine except the engine itself, and I learned quite a bit.
Another car I've pined over since I was a young teen.
Corporate cultures tend to dwindle into self-parodying jokes to the degree where Dilbert has been riding on this for decades. Force two clashing corporate cultures to merge and the result is pretty much what you expect.
