Lincoln Vintage Cars Logo typeface

Comments

Lincoln has long used logoscripts. The originals were done by designers familiar with the Palmer style of penmanship. Note that the slope is very inclined from the vertical. For a font in that style see Filmotype Yukon http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/filmotype/yukon/ as well as fonts descended from Bickham Script http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/adobe/bickham-script-mm/
I am not certain whether this version of the Continental logoscript is still based on an original handwritten effort or wheter it is taken direct from a font.
In any event, it is fairly close to Profont's Sonata http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/profonts/sonata-pro/ which is not quite as deeply inclined as the logoscript.
