Lincoln Exhibit Compliments Woodward Dream Cruise
IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 14, 2002 – Lincoln welcomes the Woodward Dream Cruise's first-ever foray into Bloomfield Hills with its "Cruisin' with Lincoln" display. On Saturday, Aug. 17, from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm, the Cranbrook Academy of Art will play host to prominent classic Lincolns of the past and future. Displayed vehicles will range from a 1933 Le Baron KB Roadster to the Lincoln Continental concept car, unveiled at the 2002 Los Angeles Auto Show.
"When we learned that the Woodward Dream Cruise was extending its reach into Bloomfield Hills, we knew that it was a natural for Lincoln to play a leadership role," said Randy Stewart, Lincoln Mercury Detroit Regional Manager. "We're playing to Lincoln's strengths here: style, luxury and performance."
As well as the '33 Le Baron KB and the Continental Concept, Lincoln has arranged for significant models of the company's history from each decade to be in attendance and on display. And, prior to its official arrival at dealers later this year, Lincoln also will display the 2003 Aviator luxury sport-utility vehicle.
In addition, Lincoln will be hosting Ford Motor Company's "100th Anniversary Experience", a mobile display that includes a historic company timeline, a Model T-100, a 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II, a centennial countdown clock and several videos highlighting the company's past, present and future. In addition, the legend of Lincoln's storied history, from its earliest days under Henry Leland to being purchased by Henry Ford to setting new standards for luxury and design going forward also will be told.
The Cruisin' with Lincoln display is open to passers-by at no charge. Lincoln invites all Woodward Dream Cruisers to make the drive to Bloomfield Hills!
