This 1970 Lincoln Continental Mark III is owned by Stan Fitzgerald of Bear Creek.

“My wife refuses to drive this car,” Fitzgerald said. “She says it’s too big; she jokes that she needs air traffic controllers to park it. It has been in my family for 43 years now. My grandfather bought it new when he lived in New Jersey, drove it as his daily driver for 10 years, then passed it onto my uncle, who in turn has entrusted it to me. It runs great and is very powerful, a classic example from before people worried about fuel standards and miles per gallon.”
