1939-48 Lincoln Continental: Separating Truth from Legend8
The first-generation Lincoln Continental is a full-fledged classic, an automotive legend since its inception. The truth is that it was a modified Lincoln-Zephyr powered by a V-12 engine of dubious merit. And, as Tim Howley relates, the stories of the Continental and Edsel Ford are both inseparable-and fascinating.
1964-87 Oldsmobile 4-4-2: "Anti-Boredom Machine"30
The 4-4-2 sped onto the scene in mid-1964 to fend off Pontiac's hot GTO. At stake was Oldsmobile's image and the lucrative youth market of the Sixties. With a big block V-8 stuffed into the F-85/Cutlass chassis, the 4-4-2 was well armed for the "muscle car" wars that followed. Dennis Casteele tells how it fared.
Jaguar's Big Sedans 1938-88: "Grace, Space, Pace"54
Sir William Lyons saw to the success of Jaguar's big sedans by setting a high standard: superb styling, lively performance, and astonishing value for money. Until his retirement in 1972, he personally oversaw the design of every Jaguar, which explains the continuity from one model to the next. Graham Robson narrates.
1975 Leata: Outside of its Time69
In the early days, many backyard tinkerers set themselves up as automakers. Usually, they built "assembled" vehicles made from off-the-shelf parts. James L. Hockenhull tells the story of a latterday attempt to build such a car: Don E. Stinebaugh's 1975 Leata. The car was as interesting and singular as its builder.

1955 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer Convertible26
1937 Packard 1507 Dietrich Convertible Victoria      50
Dodge, casting off its stodgy image, boasted bold new styling in 1955. The top-line Custom Royal Lancer had a hemi-head V-8 for go, and a snappy convertible for show. Quiet elegance keynoted the 1937 Packard V-12. As a Convertible Victoria by Dietrich, it was, as Packard said, "Socially-America's First Motor Car."
