If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

What is the most recognizable car from the turn of the century?

50 years from now, what will be one of the first cars to come to mind when you’re imagining a scene from the 2000s? Something so common or so distinct that it just fits the time period perfectly.

I’d have to go with the last generation of the Ford E-Series. It went for over 20 years with only one major facelift, and it was always the go-to commercial vehicle for most companies. Even today, it’s impossible to go outside for more than 5 minutes without seeing approximately 47 of them. A close second would be the Crown Vic, but those are mostly common in big cities with lots of taxis; the E-series is common everywhere.

Is there a better choice that I’m forgetting?
