Default Sometimes you have to let go

My Zephyr heading to its new home. Not an easy decision but Sometimes you just gotta let go . Still have my 40 Fords and enjoying them. Looking for a good original 40 Standard coupe.

I'm thinking that's what he did when the new owner made him an offer.

Sorry to see anyone have to part with something they put so much into. There does come a time to decide though. Sold a few things and have regrets but still have more that I cling to for some reason. That is the most beautiful Lincoln I've ever seen what a labor of love. Hope the new owner appreciates.

In my opinion the 39 Lincoln Zephyr was one of the best designs ever...the side profile is heart stopping...

I understand about letting go! After 10 + years of owning a 1934 Buick Coupe (only 3 known registered in the U.S.) I let it go. Regrets ever since.

That is one beautiful automobile. I was going to sell my 40 coupe when I recently bought my 40 convertible but I feel I am going to hold on to it for a bit longer.
