YAK Car Pic of the Day

This 1962 Lincoln Continental seems to be in good company there on Grand Island — hiding behind it is a 1965 Buick Riviera. The Lincoln was in its second year of the classically clean body style, which still had a couple of good years left in it before the 1966 remake (one of which we saw here a couple of days ago). “Entering the rear compartment of Lincoln Continental for 1962 is as easy as entering the front, thanks to wide-opening doors hinged to the body instead of the center pillar.” Funny, that brochure description of the center-opening doors never once referred to them by their popular name — suicide doors. I wonder why? See the whole brochure here.
