Lincoln Celebrates 90th Anniversary of the Lincoln Highway 

NEW YORK, Aug. 19  For all you vintage car fans, there’s nothing that quite captures the romance of a bygone era better than seeing a collection of classic and current Lincoln vehicles on a cross country tour over a historic byway. From Aug. 17 - Sept. 1, owners of these historic cars will be among those traveling from coast-to-coast to commemorate the 90th anniversary of America's first transcontinental road, the Lincoln Highway.

"The Lincoln Highway Cross Country Tour is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see this remarkable piece of American history in its entirety," said Bob Licty, chairman of the Lincoln Highway Anniversary Tour.  The tour was created as a way to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the 3,300- plus mile road that spans 12 states from New York to California.  The beginnings of the Highway date back to 1913 and was named after former United States President Abraham Lincoln. The Lincoln Highway name fell into disuse as numbering systems replaced names of highways as the number of highways proliferated across the country.    

Lincoln will serve as an official sponsor for the Lincoln Highway Anniversary Cross Country Tour. A Town Car will pace the caravan of vehicles making the cross-country tour, and Lincoln will provide two Navigators as support vehicles. Classic Lincolns participating in the drive will include cars such as a 1937 Lincoln K-series, a 1961 Continental and a 1964 Continental.

The tour kicked off in Times Square on Sunday, Aug. 17.  It travels through New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Nevada, and ends in San Francisco's Lincoln Park on Sept.1.
