Anyone lucky enough to turn the key to a new Lincoln Model K in the 1930s would have heard the rumble of a 414-cubic-inch V12 engine powering one of the most exclusive and expensive vehicles of the Depression era. It was a luxury car with such artful attention to detail, its entire body type was customizable, making every example rare and beautiful in its own unique way.

One such automobile is the 1936 Lincoln Model K LeBaron Sport Coupe that will be showcased at the Arizona Concours d’Elegance, held on the manicured grounds of the historic Arizona Biltmore Resort in Phoenix on January 15, 2017. Resplendent in its gleaming Mercury Metallic paint and sculpted fenders, the LeBaron Sport Coupe will be shown courtesy of owners Ray and Bonnie Kinney of Dallas, Texas, as part of a special Concours class for 2017 – Lincolns of the Classic Era.

It’s not every day you get to drive a million-dollar Bugatti. Author Miranda Seymour remembers well the day when Bugatti restoration expert and preservationist Tim Dutton let her have a chance behind the wheel of a sought-after 35S model.

“Tim took me out in one on the open road, told me it was being sold for a million the next day, and then he let me drive it,” she recalled excitedly. “The feeling of exhilaration is like no other, especially if you are out on the road, ducking between trucks and trying to get the hang of having a gear shift outside of the car.”
