Resident’s Vintage Lincoln Driven in Parade

First published in the Jan. 6 print issue of the Outlook Valley Sun.

This 1940 Continental, owned by La Cañada Flintridge resident Jerry Furrey, was the vehicle which the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame class of 2021-22 members Jim Delany and Ron Simpkins rode down Colorado Boulevard in Saturday’s Rose Parade. The 1940 Continental was the most expensive model in the Lincoln-Zephyr line, with only 404 examples of these mostly hand-assembled cars completed.
