Cars of Kings coming to Ferrum College June 9

Between 1920 and 1948 the top-of-the-line Lincoln automobile was a highway stunner. Long and loaded with comfort, they were the cars of the rich, the powerful, and the famous.
Now dozens of the best examples of vintage Lincolns will be purring onto the campus of Ferrum College for Lincolns in the Blue Ridge, the Eastern National Meet of the Lincoln-Zephyr Owners Club and the Early Lincoln Owners Club, Saturday, June 9, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Lincolns are known for luxury, and the early models were no exception. The Lincoln-Zephyr boasted 12 cylinder motors. (Listen closely to the famous pop song “Hot Rod Lincoln.”) This meet is the first Eastern National Meet to come to the Virginia Blue Ridge. The vehicles will also be touring around Franklin, Floyd, and Patrick Counties.
Lincolns in the Blue Ridge is a program of Ferrum College’s Blue Ridge Institute & Museum, the state center for Blue Ridge Folklore. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information contact the Blue Ridge Institute & Museum at bri@ferrum.edu or (540) 365-4412.
