Collectors of classic cars know a real Imperial wasn't merely a gilded Chrysler. The true Imperials came from a spin-off Chrysler marque that brought to the fore everything a great American company could muster. Check out the 1957-1959 Imperial LeBaron for evidence.

The greatest Jaguars embody the British firm's time-honored slogan, "Grace, space, and pace." Learn about a herd of hot cats, from the 1960-1969 Jaguar Mark II sporting saloon to the supercharged 2000 Jaguar XKR.

For an American automaker founded just after World War II, Kaiser boasts a substantial list of high-interest cars. Find out why such models as the 1951 Kaiser DeLuxe were considered daring styling departures and, more importantly, were successful in the marketplace.

Lincoln aspires to high-volume profitability, but Ford's premium house also is responsible for a good number of low-volume classics. Check out such important American cars as the 1932-1934 Lincoln V-12, the 1940-1941 Lincoln Continental, and the 1968-1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III.
