An Ugly Procession of Cars for an Ugly Man in an Ugly Country

Ford boasts that its Lincoln luxury division makes cars for presidents. But in North Korea it's the car for dictators. Three mid-1970s Lincolns made up Kim Jong-il's funeral parade.
Nobody knows how the cars made it into the country but it's probable that they were abducted at gunpoint from a dealership in the middle of the night and brought to the Stalinist state (somehow) by submarine.
