Lincoln Continental Low Rider – East 63rd Street, NYC

August 8th, 2012 by Stu

Most people like getting their picture taken with the cars they love. The owner of this Lincoln, sporting one seriously pimped out Continental coupe, was an exception to the rule. He gave me serious evil eyes the moment I whipped out the camera. I quickly fired off a few rounds and holstered my sidearm. It was worth the brief discomfort I experienced as the light changed from yellow to green. This thing is so freekin cool…from the rich green paint to the unique chrome dish wheels and low rider stance.

Lincoln Continental – Swall Drive, LA

April 21st, 2010 by Stu

This could easily serve as a 1960s post card. The B/W coloring, vintage set of wheels and beautiful suburban back drop harks back to a simpler time. Another great find from our good friend, fellow photographer and purveyor of 35mm film Aaron Stern.

1961 Lincoln Continental

I know what you’re thinking – why is a General Motors PR guy cruising around downtown Manhattan in a Lincoln? They can lock you up for that sort of thing in Detroit. Pierre Kanter is no traitor though. In fact, the French-born car guy and 15 year GM marketer called up VP of Global Design Ed Welburn for his blessing before making the purchase two years ago. “It was between the ’61 Lincoln and a ‘59 Caddy Coupe de Ville. Welburn loved the Caddy but told me I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to own a Continental.”

Lincoln covered

RE: what’s under the car cover. For those of you who said early 1960s Lincoln Continental hard top sedan, pat yourselves on the back. You didn’t actually think we would pull the cover off of a complete stranger’s vintage automobile did you? That’s how people get killed in this city.

1966 Chrysler Newport – Old Dock Street, Brooklyn

July 30th, 2009 by Austin

From a stunning 1941 concept car to fin-tastic coupes, sedans, wagons and convertibles circa 1960, Chrysler has certainly taken liberal use of the Newport moniker. And, with all the low riders and assorted customs roaming around, it is clear that enthusiasts have too. It wasn’t until ‘61 that Chrysler dedicated a specific model line to the Newport name. Up until that point, the badge designated a 2-door hardtop body configuration. This entry level full size sedan, essentially a de-contented sister vehicle to the upscale New Yorker, was meant to bridge the gap between Chrysler and Dodge when DeSoto went under.

1961 Lincoln Continental Convertible – West 22nd Street, NYC

May 22nd, 2009 by Ian

The Lincoln used in the opening credits of Entourage is cooler than Vinnie, Eric, Turtle and Drama combined. We’re talking about the iconic 4 door convertible that originated suicide doors here folks. Short of loading a prefabricated home onto the back of a tractor trailer, driving one of these Continentals is the closest a person will ever come to taking the living room for a ride .
