    Bought a '41 Lincoln Continental early march and had it delivered last Saturday. Been looking for the right one for 20 years. Hope none of my Studes are upset that it's parked in a garage with some of them. I'll probably find out when I go to start one and it balks.

      Sounds exciting Randy! How 'bout a few pics. If it has one of those flathead V-12 engines...I'd really like a pic of that!

        But I am sure Car Sales are down like everything, even though we have more time to drool over stuff!
        Have just seen the headline on Automotive News Europe that VW Group is anticipating Q1 sales to be down by 81%. Meanwhile, Germany is allowing auto retailers to open up again to stave off mass bankruptcies.

        While appreciate this relates to mostly new car sales instead of classic cars in Europe, I would imagine the sentiments of people being cautious would pretty much synonymous around the world- time will tell.

          I think you just committed a serious foul. Pictures or it doesn't count.

            I think that the Studebakers will accept their new sibling, as long as you don't play favors, like premium fuel for the Lincoln, extra washing and waxing, and more drive time. Just keep it fair. Congrats on the new car!

                Randy,

                Did you buy it locally? It looks familiar but I'm not sure. This is my kind of car, love it. Do I get a ride? For folks that don't know Randy that well, his middle name should be Lincoln. What do the kids think about it? There was a 41 convertible being kicked around the AACA forum several months ago. It was a great opportunity, I really considered it, but out of room.

                I've enjoyed reading about peoples' purchase of newer cars. I don't own anything newer then about twenty five years old, so this is vicarious enjoyment for me. I've lived in my own little world of cars, with a limited appeal for so long, that when a car to my liking showed up I've had little competition for it. So for fifteen years it's been fun, but my supply of good western Ford Thunderbirds and Lincoln Mark Vlll's is about dried up. I may have to step into the 21st century, I'd love a Tesla S but they are too rich for my blood. Might have to look for a Chrysler 300, or maybe a Genesis. Ah what the hell maybe just buy another Studebaker and call it good!

                Thanks for sharing your experiences, it's been a good read.

                  Randy,
                  Is that the same vintage Lincoln as Sonny Corleone drove in The Godfather?

                      Well Bill, if Lincolns and Continentals are his "thing", Randy HAS to have a GT Hawk!

                              AutoMart in Ocala, Florida on Saturday. Daughter and I picked her up a nice little 2018 Ford Ecosport for about $650.00 over wholesale. I was really surprised, but I suppose car sales are tanking, also. In and out in under 3 hours. No fuss, no muss, no haggling. Simple offer, simple deal.

                              We both wore mask and gloves. Only two other persons even had a mask on and it was only over their mouth. They kept taking it off to talk???? The salesman helping them finally went to another table and got one of their make shift plexi glass shields and put it on the table between him and them. They still didn't get the hint.
