As much as I love to point and make jokes at the ridiculousness of a Bentley’s opulence, even I clammed up and enjoyed the car once I got to drive one. And let me tell you something: once you’re all good and wrapped up in that leather interior, nothing else that happens outside of the car matters to you in the…
When looking up images for the 1964 Imperial that Don Draper drove in an episode of Mad Men, I stumbled upon a 2006 concept car that has the new Lincoln Continental beat by a wide margin in the Bentley-lookalike category.
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 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…
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.
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. It made me wonder why the fundamental shape of today's Bentley motor vehicles are so stunning. After perusing Bentley's history, I think I found the answer: André Embiricos.
Walking around Old Town Alexandria just outside Washington DC, I happened upon this beautiful 1969 Lincoln Continental Mark III. I remember the old Mark series of Lincoln automobiles when I was a kid, they were swank. Seriously swank. Big, bold, bedecked with fake wood and vinyl, but definitely a status symbol for…
The first photos of the droptop Bentley Continental GT Speed have emerged tonight, and it sure is pretty. And purple.
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.)
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. But will its price suggest that buyers should grease the seller's palm, or just keep roaming?
When it came time to advertise the new for 1984 Continental Mark VII Lincoln took the road less traveled, admitting they had been unable to compete with their competition—until now.
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. This weekend we want to know what would happen if the opposite were true and derbies somehow became the territory of brand new cars.
It's a somewhat little known fact that Lyndon B. Johnson loved cars, but the rather unique fleet of cars he kept on the ranch in Stonewall, TX where the 36th president grew up and lived for most of his life certainly tell the tale.
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. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe 1960 Lincoln Continental might be perfect for a Presidents' Day parade, but is its price unimpeachable?
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.
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. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Lincoln Mark V serves as a stoic reminder of what luxury once was, but is its…
Ford may spend $1 billion in yet another extreme makeover for Lincoln, with a flurry of new, tech-laden models aimed for Lexus, Cadillac and BMW. Ford should save its pennies and just kill Lincoln.
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.
Welcome to Found Off The Street, our look at cars found on the cape that rust liked so much it decided to summer there; Cape Cod, MA. Today we have a 1960 Ford F100
