With the recent resurgence of Lincoln these days, it is easy to forget that just a few years ago Ford was ready to put the proverbial axe to Lincoln. With sales that were on life support, and models that failed to standout in the crowded luxury market, things looked bleak for Ford's luxury division. However, thanks to new models such as the MKC crossover, as well as the updated MKZ, sales have seen a 7.3 percent increase through the month of October and look to continue their trend upward through the month of November. While the 2017 MKZ debuts a new and improved styling language, Lincoln representatives revealed that the brand still plans to keep a calculated pace in its revival plans.

Each year Pebble Beach committee tries hard to invite vehicles which truly represent the full breadth and depth of automobility: this year there was a class of significant Mercury lead sled customs. The featured marques were du Pont and Ferrari. It was most enjoyable to see a class of Shelbys, and thus a row of Mustangs, on the Pebble Beach lawn amongst all the Ferraris!

Every Labor Day, it seems brings with it a series of conflicting emotions. On one hand, it signals the end of yet another season of warm Summer weather and having to say goodbye to long hours of sunshine, shorts, and walks on the beach. Snow cones and ice cream won't taste the same again for at least another nine or ten months, and, of course, the dreaded beginning of yet another school year is just days and hours away. But, Labor Day isn’t all bad—each annual long weekend brings about the start of car show season, and one of the most celebrated old car shows on the entire East Coast. The Lead East car show touts itself as the “World's Biggest 50’s Party” and they aren't kidding. Oldies bands, Doo Wop Groups, and, of course, some of the craziest, most impressive hot rods from all over the country.
Hillsborough Concours is one of the best events of the Northern California car show calendar. It takes place right on the San Andreas earthquake fault line, hard to believe since a more picturesque spot would be hard to find. Like Pebble Beach, it is on a golf course, with visitors parking and riding. Like Pebble, the show is a manageable number of cars, meaning you can walk around the field multiple times, revisiting favorite cars, rather than drowning in volume. Like Pebble, this year one of featured marques was Ferrari.
