An Author. The CS on the emblems that the cars have GT/CS stands for CALIFORNIA SPECIAL. Not Carroll Shelby. Also, Shelby didn’t design the car. Shelby was working on the famous Mustang, but it’s unclear if Shelby took from the GT/CS or visa versa because stories I’ve read have said both, but at least you have the fact that the side scoops are the same as the Shelby.
I’m not an author or a journalist, but I think one of the first rules of journalism is to get your facts “write before you right”.

Comment on Pick of the Day: 1962 Lincoln Continental Presidential limousine by Daniel Spyralatoshttps://news.classiccars.com/pick-day-1962-lincoln-continental-presidential-limousine/#comment-4181 Thu, 25 Aug 2016 17:17:40 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=69134#comment-4181 This is an amazing limousine with a lot of history behind it obviously. Excellent post and pick by ClassicCars.com
I was searching this vehicle the other day, and I’m glad it found a new owner. It deserves to be cared and preserved.

All I have to say is “lucky buyer.” Owning any kind of luxury limousine can be cool, especially for people like me who own limousine companies. So I can only imagine, adding such an important piece of history to a collection of limousines, must feel amazing!

I wish more and more vehicles of historic significance were used in these modern days. It gives an extra touch to not only the owner, but also the fellow drivers on the road. I would really love driving down a highway, and seeing a significant car driving next to me. It’s a nice window view to have and it certainty brings back a lot of memories and thoughts to mind.

White with red interior, 3 speed on the column. That big block would smoke the tires when I dumped the clutch. I loved that car. Looking for one but this ones out of my budget.

You should do the things you want to especially if you are retired and can still afford to do them. I love old original built and restored cars but that is me. I hope all folks find their own way to the toys they want. Who cares what other people may say?

Comment on Commentary: When did Ford LTD become a collector car? by Michael P.https://news.classiccars.com/commentary-ford-ltd-become-collector-car/#comment-4173 Wed, 24 Aug 2016 14:14:54 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=79486#comment-4173 Larry – Greatly enjoyed your story on the 1970 Ford LTD 4DR coming up for auction at Sotheby’s! I agree that the LTDs of this era (and other early 70’s full-size American cars) are often overlooked by collectors, but for us enthusiasts with smaller budgets, I think they offer a lot of collector-car-bang for the buck. I purchased a 1971 LTD 2DR convertible in 2014, 90K miles, original interior, one repaint (from white to silver) and new convertible top, for $6,000. I had to put in $1,000 in brakes and a few other items but I now have a very nice summer driver that provides much fun and allows me full participation in the collector car hobby for a modest investment. It floats confidently down the road and is perfect for taking five friends (or even more if small children) out for ice cream on warm summer evenings.

However, if her vehicle is auctioned off it would likely payoff one of the many lawsuits made against her con man husband.
