You know an odd feeling?

Not a Nash.

Not a Buick - not a GM of any sort.

More hints: This car was only available as a two door hardtop. The engine compartment was so cavernous that the battery was mounted on the firewall above the transmission. The car was only made for two years. It was built in Michigan by a now extinct division of one of the major automakers.

Good Luck...

P.S.
Bob, I got lucky with the rain. None of it ended up in the basement, and It melted most of the three feet of heavy snow on the roof that I otherwise would have had to go up and shovel off.

Question

Joe: I just PM'd you with my "best shot", since I can't think of any good ones to ask right now , so I don't want to "win" (on the off-chance that I might be right!)

Glad to hear you didn't have water problems, you guys have been catching hell this winter. Up north we only have a foot of snow, didn't get much rain.

55/56 Lincoln Continental Mark II Here's a cool link with some nice pics of a 56. There are 2 of these in this area that I know of, one sits outside in the weather and gets move to mow the yard. I think I am going to see what they do with the thing. http://exotic-classics.ebizautos.com...d-5907994.html

That's the answer I was looking for.....except they technically were not Lincolns. Continental was it's own division at the time these cars were built. The Mark II was the swan song for the Continental Division. It is said that Ford lost money on each one of these cars, even though they were twice as expensive as a comparable Cadillac.





The styling reminds me of some of the cars in one of my favorite old Tex Avery films:

And they look really good in the weeds...


Dinger, the next question is yours...

I hope this will be a tough one, the last one was a toughy. Without the hints, it would still be unsolved! Here we go:

This car company existed in the teens through the early 30's. The first name is the same as one of the most famous athletes of our time (last name). The second name of this car could be the same name as a famous mens magazine. These cars were ahead of their time in styling and set the standards for advertising in the day. Poor money management and the depression, the company went bankrupt in 1931. So, company name the same as the athlete, model names the same as a famous magazine. Quite a racy car in their time.
