With nothing new to show off at the 2012 LA Auto Show, Lincoln decided to buck the trend by bringing a collection of fine, classic Lincoln models to its booth.

Celebrating its storied past, Lincoln paid tribute to its heritage with seven of the most influential designs in the automaker’s history. With the reinvention of the Lincoln brand fully underway, the automaker will actually be symbolizing the change by swapping out all these classics with MKZ models before the show opens to the public.
