In this vintage Car and Track segment host Bud Lindemann steps away from the test track to preview what was new in the luxury world for 1969. Taking a break from shining the spotlight on supercars, Lindemann takes a look at the roadibility of the "Luxury big three".
The first thing you notice watching this vintage luxury car profile is how huge all of the cars were. Lindemann points out the new Imperial was heavier, bigger and longer for 1969, three qualities we sincerely doubt the 1968 Imperial was lacking.
It wasn't just the Imperial though, the Lincoln and Cadillac offerings were also well into gas guzzling land yacht territory. When Bud Lindemann called 1969 "a bigger year than ever for the poshmobiles" he certainly meant it.
