No other car quite exemplifies the term “land yacht” as the Lincoln Continental. It is absurdly regal in its presentation and as ostentatious as it is wide and long. In 1962 it was offered as “economical,” surely not for the gas-chugging 430 CID V8, but genuinely for its quality and how well-built it was. The Continental’s iconic suicide doors provide entry into the plentiful six-passenger, leather and vinyl, bench seats. Walnut paneling, power everything and more leg room than a lazy-boy make this a sweet choice for just rollin’ or road trippin’ in comfort fit for a king. Cruising a Continental, dropped to the ground with some oversize wheels, immediately catapults the driver to the status of celebrity. Beware the paparazzi!
