    Another salesman saw my Conti which I park in front of the showroom and noticed the badges . He thought the badges were part of the package. He liked the idea!
    There is nothing wrong with a Buick but just not for me. The sales manager mentioned that Buick is trying to do more with SUVs than cars.
    Yes, Buick is certainly concentrating more on Crossover SUVs than cars these days. That little Encore is a big seller for them. The Enclave is due for an update and that Envision is pretty nice as well... In any event, everyone at that dealership loves your Continental. They wish Buick had a car like that!

I now hear that Lincoln is doing an about face, so the new Continental will be joined by the Zephyr to replace the MKZ (I believe) identity. Others may also change.
    Interesting about the names. Zephyr coming back - again? heh. This is like the third time now. It's a nice looking car, anyway - and a great bargain... The only three letter acronym I ever liked was LSC...

    OK, that the name Zephyr may come back is a standard joke around these parts. The Pennsylvania Dutch have quite an accent and have called this car a Zeffaah. They pronounce it like the word for a small calf with a "z" sound in the beginning. Several years ago I was in a Lincoln showroom when I overheard 2 salesmen discussing the car's name with quite a laugh. Was it a Zephyr or a heffer? One of the reasons I chose the MKS was because I did not want a Zeffaah
