***Lincoln Kind-of-Day in Munich***
« on: June 18, 2020, 02:12:46 am »
Was cycling around Munich yesterday. Ended up in the middle of nowhere on the outskirts of the city and came across this stunning sexy beauty!  :wub:


1970 Lincoln Continental Mark III







































And then later when I cycled back into the city I came upon its immediate successor!  :wub:


1972 Lincoln Continental Mark IV

Are malais era American cars really popular in Germany, or is Wimmer just really good at finding them?

A bit of both it seems?

And I would call both those pre-malaise- or at the very least the Mark III is.

MkIII is pre-malaise.  MkIV is a malaise era car.

German auto techs look at those vacuum powered headlight doors and say "Was ist hier los?".   :lol:

I don't know, I think Mercedes used to use a lot of vacuum controls.  Weren't the power door locks on old MBs vacuum operated?

Yup Malaise was more or less the Carter era.
Callahan era for me. :lol:

Same here. Absolutely gorgeous car.

I posted these pics in a Lincoln group on Facebook and the experts in there are telling me that apparently only 25 1970 Mark IIIs were ever made without a vinyl roof, and that this car appears to be one of them.

Theyíre very popular! :lol:

Thereís a huge community of American car enthusiasts here and they love basically everything until the early 1980s. After that itís rare to see some love for the rather bland stuff that came out afterwards. I know some people in several American car clubs and the 1960s and 1970s stuff is the most popular era by far. ;)

I think everybody like American cars from the 60s.  That was something of a golden era.  After '72?  With very rare exceptions, blech.  The only tip of my hat I'll give a mid 70s car over a mid 80s car is styling.  70s cars still had some carry over style from the Golden 60s.

Thereís a guy on Youtube who does passionate videos about cars which everyone literally hates: Trabant, Yugos, POS EVs from the 1970s etc. So thereís something for everyone out there. :lol:

You know me, I love the 1974 Dodge Monaco for example. I know itís a POS, but I still like it. :praise:

Cars reflect the prosperity & optimism, or lack thereof, of the era. The '50s & '60s were good times.

Yep. Cars are a product of their time for sure.
