Love Lincolns. I reckon the 1965 Continental is one of the best looking large cars ever made.
My dad drove a '69 Mark III - almost as cool as the '65. AIR it was like riding on glass.

Nice. I also love the '69. The razor-sharp waistline on those models (65 - 70) just has so much presence.

Back in 1995 at Fort Bliss, I had Mercury Cougar, I think a late 70ies (4th generation), similar looks.
Seems it was the last "large size" of it's kind. The car did "only" have the small 5 ltr engine. And - to be honest - it was not really fast. Gorgeous chance for me to very briefly own and drive one.

Mmm...never saw the attraction of driving cargo-ships on wheels. But then I'm more a hot-hatch guy.

There's nothing like a land yacht for long distance interstate highway trips. We recently acquired a new 2020 Genesis G90 V8 AWD sedan.
My eldest drives a genesis sedan. She has a 2015 5.0 but recently has looking at the G90 and the Palisade

Here is my one & only land yacht (still collecting dust)...... but it is neither a Ford nor a Coupe.

thought at first it was a DeSoto but looks more like a Merc 8 based on the headlights. And as another Cecil -
