YAK Car Pic of the Day

Not every day that you pass a 1942 Lincoln Zephyr convertible coupe in someone’s front yard (especially seeing that only 191 of them were produced) — like yesterday, in Lewiston, just outside of the Tuscarora Indian Nation. The Zephyr line was introduced in 1936 as a lower-priced alternative to the Lincoln. You can’t see it from here, but under the hood of this black beauty lurks Lincoln’s 267 CID V-12 engine. World War II halted production of all American cars after the 1942 models were introduced, but a few were made before the factories were converted to manufacture war materiels. After the war, when Lincoln’s production lines restarted, the Zephyr name was no longer used.
