I have been in love with the classic Continentals since I discovered cars. Mom’s boss had a ‘79 Town Coupe; I took a spin in one at a dealer. Both had red leather seats which combined with the usual new car smell into an intoxicating aroma that said big and smooth. A week ago, I got my Continental.: a ‘78 Town Car. No leather, but 460 glorious cubic inches of power, and reading lights in the opera windows. Vegas for SEMA 2012 wiil be its first road trip.
