How Did the Lincoln Brand Get its Name?

How Lincoln got its name - West Point Lincoln - Houston, TX

Sometimes, brands become so ubiquitous in our lives that we don’t stop to think where their names come from. Do you know how your favorite auto brand got its name? Although the Lincoln brand has come to be synonymous with high-end performance and style, its name has a distinctly all-American history.

Henry Leland founded the Lincoln Motor Company in 1917. Leland was an American inventor and engineer, a proud American, and had voted for Abraham Lincoln in the 1864 election. In its inception, the Lincoln Motor Company was founded to produce aircraft engines for World War I, but in its founding year, it also produced the luxury Lincoln Model L automobile. This sleek, sophisticated vehicle cost significantly more than the Model T, but strong sales numbers lead Lincoln to exclusively produce automobiles following the end of World War I.

In 1922, the company was purchased by Ford and developed into the first Ford luxury brand. Around this same time, a statue of Abraham Lincoln was erected at the headquarters of Lincoln Motor Company in Detroit. In the following years, several new Lincoln vehicles were introduced, leading sales to rise by approximately 45 percent. In the true spirit of the brand, the Lincoln Model L became the first car used by a U.S. president: President Calvin Coolidge. Remarkably, the Lincoln brand upholds its prestigious, presidential history to this day, proudly producing state-of-the-art vehicles that are both classic and modern.

Today, the Lincoln Motor Company is proud to carry on the name of one of this country’s greatest presidents. If you need a ride that’ll have you feeling positively presidential, stop into West Point Lincoln and check out our selection.

Unique Christmas Decoration Ideas

Thanksgiving is over and the holiday season is in full swing. If you’re celebrating Christmas and are tired of the same old decorations year-to-year, here are some unique Christmas decoration ideas that you can do this year.

Unique Christmas Decoration Ideas

Decorate Your Mailbox

Not many people think of donning their mailbox in wintry decorations — but the result is beautiful. If you have a standard mailbox, consider draping it with wreaths and holly. You can use fishing wire to hold your decorations in place so that they stay secure and make your mailbox festive for the whole season.

Ornament Cylinders

Looking for some decorations to spruce up your kitchen table or your coffee table? Use some transparent glass cylinders or flower vases and fill them with ornaments, holly, and pinecones. The result is pleasant and elegant centerpieces that you can move around to different tables easily.

Use Flannel

Flannel is the perfect material that reminds everyone of the holidays and of cozy warmth. Use flannel in your house this year by draping blankets over sofas or even using flannel blankets as a tablecloth or as a table runner.

Hang Twinkling Lights

Instead of the standard Christmas lights, think about hanging twinkling lights in doorways, on walls, or in your yard. The dull glow they’ll give off as well as their potential as a dinner backdrop makes them the perfect holiday addition to your home.

There’s no better holiday decoration than a shiny new Lincoln in your driveway. To add one to your own personal wonderland, stop into West Point Lincoln.

How to Prepare Your Car for Winter in Texas

While major snowstorms aren’t as serious a concern as they are up north, winter in Texas still poses some potentially difficult conditions that drivers need to plan for. The best way to make sure that you are ready is to be proactive and prepare your vehicle ahead of time so you can drive with total confidence in any season.

Wiper Blades


In Northern Texas, colder temperatures and wet weather can really put your car’s tires through their paces. Because of this, it’s important to make sure all tires are properly inflated, aligned, and have sufficient tread going into the colder months of the year.

Windshield Wiper Blades

Winter weather in Texas can be very unpredictable, which is why it’s crucial to make sure your car’s wiper blades are in great condition before winter arrives. If your vehicle’s wiper blades are cracked, bent, or damaged, replace them all now before cooler, wetter weather sets in.


Fluctuating and generally cooler temperatures can put additional strain on any car battery, so it’s important to make sure that you have enough juice to get you through the season. If your battery is not adequately holding a charge, replacing it now is a much better option than being left stranded down the road. It’s also quite a bit less expensive than having to call for a tow.

These steps won’t just help you tackle whatever weather winter brings. They’ll help you be more prepared for the road any time of year. To have your seasonal maintenance needs met, bring your vehicle into West Point Lincoln.
