Henry Leland named this brand of car after Abraham Lincoln, a man he had voted for when he became eligible to vote. Lincoln cars
have long been a standard for American proficiency in automobile standards and Lincoln has a history of building cars to be used by
the US President. The first car built for Presidential use was the 1939 Lincoln V12 convertible called the "Sunshine Special" used by
Franklin D. Roosevelt. It remained in use until 1950.
"Lincoln has built its all-new 2006 Zephyr to be less ostentatious and more discrete in hopes of retaining loyalists, while simultaneously bringing new and younger buyers into the fold — the same mission as the original 1936 Zephyr."
Cleaning your paint is not the same as washing your car. It means removing oxidation and contaminants, putting emollients back into your paint, and smoothing the surface of the paint. There are several products on the market that will accomplish one, two, or all these functions. In fact, there are so many products by so many names, that the correct choice may be confusing. Visit a reputable dealer and
get some advice when cleaning and waxing your car. At the least, just read the labels for a quick education!
