Klay Thompson? He’s known more for his taste in boats than cars.
It’s his hobby as a seafarer that’s landed him on front pages outside of the basketball world. He’s so associated with boats, in fact, that he has fellow NBA players asking him to take them out on the open sea, and even holds boat rides for charity.
While it looks like boats are Thompson’s main thing, he also has a few noteworthy cars inside his garage. No, not his Mercedes-Benz G-Class. Let’s be honest: G-Wagens are about a dime a dozen in the celebrity world.
We’re talking about his classic Lincoln Continental. Look:

We’re not 100% certain, but the unit he’s flaunting appears to be a fourth-generation model based on the chrome bit up front. The wheels are clearly aftermarket, but other than that, everything looks in order.
Thompson’s post is also a tribute to Will Ferrell’s ‘Frank the Tank’ from 2003’s Old School. “I took the restrictor plate off to give the Red Dragon a little more juice. But let’s keep that on the down-low. She’s not exactly street legal.”
Man, this scene gets us every time. So, think Thompson will be looking to show his baby off when the Finals start this weekend? Let us know in the comments.
