While Walking To The Post Office

While walking to the post office I saw this
Lincoln Continental.

WOW!

I went home (letter not posted),

I love a classic car! That is beautiful. One of my favorite shows is Top Gear(UK) version. Lincoln still has really pretty autos. Great car!

There was a time when a car was truly a luxury item - especially something like this one! You must have been quite taken aback!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Wow! That was a definite "go back and get your camera" type of car to see, Snap! It looks one of a kind! Beautiful!

Rajesh said...

I love the shade of blue in this old Lincoln. Yes, sometimes I think I just need to attach the camera to my arm or something. I'm always wishing I had it when I don't. And we have similar self portraits today! I have an old photo of us in the car with my dad, and lo and behold if one looks closely they can see my mom in the car reflection, holding her brownie camera at her waist as they did, with her bobby sox and saddle shoes evident!

GrandmaK said...

WOW, indeed, It is a handsome car!! This is a treasure! My in-laws had or 4 antique cars and we really loved riding in them They were head-turners just like this one! This is grand! Thanks for bringing back some fond memories! Have a wonderful week! Cathy

Pat said...

I would have gone back for my camera too! These are wonderful photos!

Icy BC said...

That's a fantastic looking car, and very fanciful too!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

How neat is that! I always think...don't they need this for a movie set? Enjoy your Monday! ♥

Jill Harrison said...

which goes to show that you should always carry a camera with you - any camera! Beautiful car! Have a wonderful week and thankyou for stopping by my blog to say hi!

Marianne said...

Wow, that's a heavy car in more ways than one. It made a wonderful mosaic, Snap. Very Panache!

Enjoy the day,
Marianne

Lorrie said...

Classic cars have such elegance. I love the color of this one! Good for you for taking the time to turn back and get your camera.

Sharon said...

Wow. What a beauty. How much fun it would be to take a ride in that beauty.

Carole said...

That is one snazzy car!

bj said...

THIS is ONE. KILLER. CAR.
So glad you went home for the camera. :))
I have 2 little point and shoot cameras...one for home and one stays in my purse at all times. :)))

Genie said...

WOW! WOW! WOW! This is one fantastic post. So glad you decided to go home for the trusty camera. Your mosaics of each and every little bit of that gorgeous machine are awesome. I could look at them all afternoon and not get tired of what I was seeing. Wonder if the owner is one of the CEO’s of a big bank! They definitely have the money for a prize like this. By the way, I adore your Pathological Picture Taker and would love to add it to my sidebar with permission. It is one of the best I have seen in ages. Happy Week....Genie

Diane AZ said...

Wow, so shiny and beautiful! You were lucky there was enough time to go back for your camera. Very cool!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Oh yes, the getting photos of this car was much more important than any letter that needed mailed (Unless you were mailing me a check.)

Great advice to keep those cameras handy.

Al said...

What an awesome car - great shots!

Carver said...

You took some great shots of the classic Lincoln.

Muddled Up Mumma said...

Such a stately car. What a classic.

Barb said...

I think that cars had more glamour and pizzaz in the "olden days."

Ebie said...

Snap! See what little distraction got you in? A beauty, and I love the color!

Very vintage, shiny and very well kept!

Red Nomad OZ said...

Wow! I hope the letter wasn't a bill to be paid that's now overdue!! But who cares when you've got something like this to snap!!

Why don't modern cars have this kind of class?? Or is it just me?!

Reader Wil said...

Great photoseries about this beautiful vintage car! These details of it are so unique.
Thanks for your comment . Roger was good he had seven answers right! Have a go.

Stewart M said...

They really don’t make them like that anymore!

Cheers - Stewart M

NatureFootstep said...

You still have a Post OFfice? Lucky you!
It is a beautiful car and you did a gret job documenting it. :)

Gattina said...

Beautiful pictures love the old timers !

Riet said...

Wow, that is one of the most beautiful cars. I am so glad you took photo's and showed them to us.

Jackie said...

Beautiful, and I reckon these vintage cars are more reliable than most modern models. Mine is in the hospital right now, the linkage assembly disintergrated leaving me stranded 40 miles from home, in the dark.
I'm still showing my last weeks entry on my RandomPics blog, it has several vintage cars, pics and slide, that were on show during our recent War Weekend, I fell in love with a beautiful Bentley and my dh was eyeing a Chrysler....

EG Wow said...

WOW! That's some car! Glad you went home to get your camera. :)

Kit said...

Wow, awesome car and photos. Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a great week! Kit

Martha Z said...

Great find, I'd go back for may camera, too.

The Bodhi Chicklet said...

I love to see your priorities are in order - capturing beauty before taking care of the practical letter posting. Great reflection shot of you too!

Jacqueline said...

What a stunning piece of art. It shows a lot of love and care! My dad would have loved this.

michelle allen said...

so super cool! love how you captured so many angles.

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

What a beautiful and well-kept car! Even the convertible top looks like it's in pristine condition.

Kaye said...

Gorgeous car and what a color! Cars today are just so bland. I'm sure the owner would appreciate your enthusiasm for the vehicle. not sure however how they would like their license plate posted on the internet.
