1957 Lincoln owned and restyled by Bill Hines of Garden Grove, California. Bill's Lincoln was nosed, decked and shaved for door handles. It was fit with a Landau-top, custom bumpers and a tube grille, before Bill gave it one of his signature fadeaway paint jobs. Around 1997 Bill drove the car to Branson, Missouri to attend the first Hot August Nights.[1] Since then the car has been re-painted. In 2016 it was still in the Hines family, displayed at the Darryl Starbird Museum in Oklahoma.[2]
