This Car Matters

March 12, 2013

For its This Car Matters movement, the Historic Vehicle Association is asking people to share their stories about special vehicles — ones that helped to shape their lives and communities, and our history and heritage. Check out the videos below, and if you haven’t yet shared your story, head on over to the This Car Matters page on our website to find out how you can participate.

    thanks again for this car matters. Does anyone have the story on the Lincoln " ACE " also known as Continental Ace Deluxe? I beleive it was made only one year , 1933. I don't know if it was built by Lincoln. It had a 6 cylinder engine, and maybe the continental was a clue to engine builder Continental. thanks, JK
