We’ve featured the great Continental Mark II before. It’s truly one of the post war classics, just a great design. While luxury cars today are usually not available in primary colors, in the 1960s and 1950s, you could still buy a bright red Cadillac or a pastel blue Continental. I just love the way this car looks in this color. It was shown at the 2012 Eyes On Design show by Jim Goerke and Phyllis Swonk. For the occasion, Phyllis dressed in an outfit that matched the car’s almost turquoise blue. Eyes On Design is more of a blue blazer than black tie event, top shelf but without a formal attitude like at a concours. Even the people who get dressed up, do so casually, there’s probably more seersucker than there is worsted wool. Ms. Swonk’s get up and smile perfectly captures the spirit of the day.
