JFK’s last safe ride. Lincoln to Fort Worth airport

Lincoln JFK rode in to airport to Dallas

This is the Lincoln that took JFK, Jackie Kennedy, and Gov. John Connally to the Fort Worth airport and the fateful flight to Dallas. Two hours later, in a different Lincoln, JFK was dead.

The car is at The Auto Collection at the Linq, Las Vegas, which has 250+ cars. Almost all their cars are in pristine condition, some are impossibly rare, and most are for sale. The Lincoln is $2 million. (Coming soon. Photos of their 1956 Ford Parklane 2-door station wagon.)

Vegas casinos are filled with surprises like this. We played tourist yesterday and took the Las Vegas Monorail to various casinos. The monorail is nice but pricey, $12 for a 24-hour pass, and it only goes a few miles, mostly through the heart of the Strip. Locals can get two 1-stop passes a day for $1 each, which might be handy if you worked at a casino. It is also useful if you want to get to a huge convention at the convention center but didn’t want to hassle with parking there. The Westgate station is the easiest to get in and out of and parking there, like at all Vegas Strip casinos, is free. The monorail is privately operated and uses no public funds.
