My Granfather had a Continental in the late sixties and I made a few long road trips with him up and down I-75. I bought this car as a work in progress and worked on it for a couple of years. I got more compliments on this car than any car I've ever owned. Grandpa would have loved this car but with gas at four bucks he would have sold it too. This car was the epitome of American excess! Good Times.
