The Sistern Story

1934 Lincoln Sedan © 2011

My father-in-law, Roy Millikin of Burkburnett, Texas, purchased a new 1934 Lincoln the same color as the one in this picture. He always believed that the larger the car the less chance of having an accident resulting in serious injury. Over the years he developed cataracts in both eyes and had to wear really thick glasses. My mother in law was convinced he had no business driving due to his bad eye sight. One day, he defied her and was going to drive. He backed the car half way out of their carport and stopped as Mother was raising so much fuss. She grabbed the keys and threw them down the sistern next to the house. Roy left the car where it was parked until he sold it about 16 years later. When sold, all the body was in good condition, but the top had deteriorated and ruined the interior and of course the paint was badly faded. The man who bought it got it started right there in the car port after installing various items and drove it to Florida!!
