Blast from the Past

Classic cars, like any other type of antique, are not only interesting to look at and consider as a mark of past progress, but also offer up engaging stories and vignettes of the people who used them. Just ask John Ellison, the owner of a gorgeous 1937 Lincoln K Judkins that once "lived" at a banana plantation in the Philippines. The car is in great condition, thanks largely to the person who owned it before John.

"Even though it’s been well over 10 years since the car was restored by a previous Lincoln collector," reads the Lincoln Now piece about the vehicle, "John didn’t feel like he needed to make a lot of his own changes to the car once he took ownership....'I was very impressed with the quality of the restoration. The fellow was very meticulous; it was a frame-off, nut-and-bolt restoration,' John explains. 'It was completely restored to its original condition.'"
