When I was a kid I thought the most awesome car ever was the 1961 Lincoln Continental. I never drove one until I bought a 1962 about forty years later. Driving it was better than I could have imagined in every way possible, every time. Besides the aesthetics which gave pleasure with every glance in any direction, giant V8, weight and wheelbase and looking out the windshield down that hood with the Continental gun sight hood ornament and chrome tipped fender edges.....
