1940 Lincoln Continental Cabriolet This car could very well be one of the first Hot Rod Lincolns. It received a Cadillac V8 engine transplant in the sixties, replacing the finicky and underpowered Lincoln V12. It also got this snazzy two-tone paint job. The Lincoln arrived in my home town of Lake Placid NY, brand new, in 1941. My dad was a lifeguard at the local beach at the time. He saw this car driving around town every summer for his entire adult life. In his late fifties, he announced at the dinner table that he was going to buy that Lincoln from the current owner's estate — the minute the guy died. The current owner was 87 at the time, so my dad figured that he wouldn't have to wait too long to snag it. Well, that original owner lived to 104. By the time my dad got his chance, he was in his 70's and his eyesight was failing, but he bought the Lincoln anyway. He and I restored it together, and he got a lot of passenger seat time in it. He left the car to me twelve years ago. Arguably, two of the best looking American cars of all time. What's your "other" car?
