Airline-Style Tray Table A Good Fit For Continental

A patent document, discovered by CarBuzz within the USPTO database, describes the Lincoln invention as a “table that may be selectively stored in a portion of a vehicle console.” It is envisioned as living within its own storage cavity on the side of the center console, while a slideable support shaft allows it to telescope out from its storage position and then rotate horizontally by 270 degrees into a useable position. The idea is remarkably similar to the fold-out tray tables often found in the first-class cabins of large airliners.

    How about a longer wheelbase (1"+ longer than anything else) for more rear legroom (1"+ more than everybody else) AND A larger trunk (longer overall)? That's the problem with the Chrysler 300.
