Wonder why Bentley cars fill you with lust? One Word: Embiricos

I was out at lunch today and when I returned to my car, I looked up and saw a Bentley Continental trolling the parking lot for a space.

Walking around Old Town Alexandria just outside Washington DC, I happened upon this beautiful 1969 Lincoln Continental Mark III.

Hey Jimmy Fallon, Here's How To Do A Lincoln Commercial The Right Way

Our own Jason Torchinsky hit the nail on the head when he called out Lincoln's silly idea to make a Super Bowl ad "crowdsourced" from tweets about road trips. (I kind of hate myself a little bit for even using that word.) » 12/15/12 9:00am 12/15/12 9:00am

For $2,600, Make Your Mark

While Greece may currently be facing a jobs crisis, for decades Lincoln kept Roman numerals employed in the naming of their luxury coupes. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe MK VIII represents the last of that breed.

What Modern Car Would You Use For A Demolition Derby?

Demolition derbies are usually a slight detour for well worn older cars between the end of their usable life and a trip to the crusher.

Lyndon B. Johnson's Lincoln Continental Heads To Auction

For $34,995, Would This Lincoln Make A President’s Day?

While George Washington and Abraham Lincoln vie for greatest U.S. President ever, Honest Abe one-ups the cherry tree massacrer by having a namesake automotive brand.

Skiing behind a Bentley Continental GT is our kind of winter sport

Skijoring is a winter sport that involves being dragged around by a horse or a dog on skis. It's also something we have almost no interest in, that is at least until you replace the horse or dog with a 570 horsepower Bentley Continental GT. » 1/29/12 12:30pm 1/29/12 12:30pm

For $12,000, that’ll leave a mark

American luxury today lacks the grandeur and optimism of the past, a fact driven by a generation raised with no appreciation for hoods long enough to land a Dreamliner, or the mystique of the opera window.

Continental passenger tried to open jet door to kill himself

A 34-year-old man attempted to commit suicide by opening the door of a Continental passenger jet traveling from Houston to Chicago. Having been on that same flight numerous times we can't relate. The Southwest flight is much worse. Midway, ugh. » 5/17/11 5:30pm 5/17/11 5:30pm
