My name is Cody, and this is the 1972 Lincoln Continental Coupe i’ve owned since my Junior year high school, so 4 years now. It belonged to my great-grandparents since the early 80s, and sat in their shed since the early 2000s. In 2017, my great-grandmother offered it to me, and i accepted, to the surprise of my dad. I couldn’t take time off school to go get it, so he brought it home for me. It needed a gas tank, fuel pump, and a few other small things to become roadworthy, but when it was, it was my daily driver. Hell, it still is. Since 2017 i’ve put a healthy 26k miles on it and loved every second. It’s been on a few 1,000+ mile road trips and is a great highway cruiser. Recently drove it from Albany, OR where I live to Azle, TX where I grew up. I’ve replaced the ball joints, control arm bushings, radiator, water pump, starter, and shocks to keep it on the road and reliable. I take it to as many car shows as I can, yet i’ve never seen another lincoln like it in person, and a few people have even tried to buy it. However, it’s not leaving me any time soon.
