YOU THINK IT’S EASY. You just wave your little magic wand and poof, Lincoln—Ford’s empty storefront of a luxury division where once presided American car-building glory—is fixed. Oh no.
This week it became known that in December Lincoln, with little comment, relieved its chief designer, Max Wolff, and replaced him with David Woodhouse, a veteran Ford campaigner formerly of Jaguar, Aston Martin, and Land Rover. Mr. Wolff will stay on as Lincoln’s head of exterior design, though I resent any reference to these men as deck chairs.
