North Korea's elite use Nixon-era Lincolns

Full story: USA Today

As we were watching coverage of the death of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, we couldn't help but notice what the elite consider the epitome of luxury one of the world's most isolated countries: Detroit-made 1970s-era Lincolns.

Considering the Ford motor companies flagship car was named for Abe Lincoln, president of a country that the NORTH kOREANS obviously have no love for, it does get a little confusing. The old Lincolns were good solid well built cars. The Cadillac was every bit as good, actually better. And the Caddy was not named for an American president. It's kind of hard to make sense of. I am sure it really does not matter what they drive anyway.

"Nixon-era" Lincolns? Nixon left office in August of 1974. Those Lincolns are from '76 or so. What purpose did it serve to use Nixon's name in the headline? Those are Ford or Carter-era Lincolns. And who gives a rat's behind what cars they use in the funeral procession of a mentally disturbed dictator? Was there actually a point to your story, Skippy?

They could have thrown in a few clown cars to soften the tears of the multitudes of one of the most beloved figures since elvis,how will they ever replace him,even satan blushed at the offer,I for one will never be able to eat take out without being reminded of this tragic loss,I would breakdown in tears if i should happen to spot an old lincoln on the road,they don't make old lincolns like they use to.
