In honor of the Lincoln & Continental Owners Club’s 70th anniversary, it is important to remember our roots. Neil Goeppinger sent a series of pictures that were made from slides shot by his father, Walter. The following collection of photographs taken at the very first LCOC national meet, held in October 1954 in Dearborn, Michigan. Enjoy!- Ed.

ABOVE:  The site of the show, Greenfield Village.  This appears to be the 1831-vintage Eagle Tavern.

ABOVE: In the early days of the LCOC, Lincoln Continentals were, at best, late-model used cars. Sometimes the interiors were modified to meet the needs of the current driver.

BELOW: The engines were upgraded too.

ABOVE:  Walt Goeppinger’s 1947 Continental was one of many great Lincolns in that long-ago parade in Dearborn.

BELOW: Modern engine swaps were not uncommon.

ABOVE: Linda Lipper’s Continental.  The car came from Boone, Iowa.

BELOW:  Who doesn’t love a parade?  And who wouldn’t love to see a parade of early Continentals?
