  • Lincoln viii was made for the track, and drive agressive. My parents owned 2 a 1994, and a 1998. The best year is 1996 tho. Lincoln company took it to the bonneville to set a new speed record. They was shooting for speeds in 160-165 mph on stock motor. They put a roll cage in it. They ran it and actuall did 182mph with a stock motor, and trans. When they came back the upper owners of lincoln did not give them any credit. They didnt want the lincoln viii to be known for racey performance, but know for style, and luxury. So they never try again. It was a 1993 model. What gets me is everyone says the lincoln with the cobra motor, noo lincoln viii had rhe motor first. Guess ford is ford tho. My parents 1994 got up to 38mpg doing 69mph, they put over 400,000 miles on it, still strong, and no leaks or issues, just did the regular tune up when needed. People who switch to spring conversion ruins the ride, and it dont get as good of mpg. The 1998 was gear different to me, it just wasnt as agressive as say the 1993-1996 models. When your doing 120mph on the freeway and tromp down on it, the ass end sqauts, and sinks you back in the seat. Truly a sleeper. 4.6 quad cam that pushed 290-295hp just depends if it was the lincoln viii lsc.

    • And what took the lincoln viii place was the lincoln ls v8 rear wheel drive, and did 0-60 in 7 sec. Just they had their problems, but the weight was equally balanced 52% front and 48% rear handled great.

  • I've owned one since 2010. Before you run out and buy one be advised the stock 1st gen headlights are dangerously poor performing. The housings, not the bulbs. 2nd gens have one of the first factory HID's that are essentially unobtanium and typically require a retrofit when they bite the dust. Any non shared parts can be moderately expensive and difficult to source. Buy a multimeter, because there will be electrical problems. Under hood plastic connectors become very brittle. It absolutely will leak oil at some point. Also prone to blend door problems.

  • I had a 94 (a late 93) with over 300k miles I beat on for a while before I got rid of it... the 93's were the fastest due to the most aggressive tune. I just bought a 98 LSC with all the bells and whistles, with moon roof, heated seats, etc.. for $5k a few weeks ago and it only has 64k miles on it. Its still on air and the rear neon is working. The previous owners could not drive any more at 90 years old, but cherished the car and took good care of it. My old Mark was definitely faster than my newer one - its VERY noticeable! My 98 LSC is staying on air no matter what! lol

  • I have this car. Mine is a 97 lSC I hate it for at least three reasons: 1. Get pulled over all the time by the police (they say it is what a drug dealer would drive). 2. plastic blend door bushing crumpled/cracked. cant fix nor glue. 3. Wont pass emissions. Its never ready. gave it to FORD dealer. They used 1/2 tank of gas and a few hours of time. said they didnt know what/why. Bonus 4. If you need to replace the Cat Convertors, forget it. Car made not to be worked on.

  • So my folks had 95 continental that had a cobra 4.6 from the factory... how do I know this because the original engine threw a rod while under warranty and they had to send a special crate motor straight from svt at the time... the story went that Aprox 300 units got the svt engine because they ran out of base 4.6 motors. I don’t remember the entire story on them but worth a mention that you might appreciate

  • had a Mark 8 for 2 years, inherited from my dad. loved that car. Normal 8 with 3.08 gears open diff and other alloys, not the LSC I see with sporty alloys 3.27 gears and limited slip from factory. Something with the air pump went out and it sat in a driveway for two years, someone wasn't smart enough to put stands under it before it sank to the ground (yes, frame was in the weeds). Mine was Pearl Bisque. I found out about the coil spring swap too late or I would still have it.

  • This video made me cry man, I was defrauded by a FEDERAL criminal that cons people using cars (looks like you sorry with all your car stuff) and he ruined my car. It still sits undrivable after 10 years and it makes me sad. I actually brought mine to BAHRAIN and back to the states. Middle eastern guys knew back then what this car was a they offered me like 5 times the value I paid but I had to keep it

Also your Lincoln is far ftom a " burnout machine". I get more smoke off my daily cup of tea. Other than that cool video. I've had many Lincolns but when they became jellybean shaped I was done. A luxury car is all sbout boxes and angles imo. Dont even mention the frikken fake fancy ass Bronco they call a Navigator. The mighty Lincoln should not be making trucks.

  • This car is kind of special to me. My grandmother had one in this really weird beige color with pinkish undertones. That raw meat color, combined with its very round shape led our family to nickname it 'The Chicken Breast.' I thought it was just the coolest car ever when I was little b/c it also appears in the opening couple of seconds of the Livin' La Vida Loca music video fish tailing into a fire hydrant.

The pictures of the car were insane the left side of the car was completely destroyed and you could not tell what car it was the right side of the car was new with out a scratch on it .

  • My parents bought a 95 Black mark viii brand new at the time after seeing it at the Chicago auto show. They passed the car down to me when I could drive and it was an amazing car. Fast and sleek. I joined several mark viii forums and was in a LoD Lincoln car club in Chicago. Very fun group and met a lot of awesome people. Sold the car to a gentleman down south in Illinois few years later. I’ll always have a soft spot for these beautiful and luxurious cars for their time. I blacked it all out and installed a Cobra R cowl hood which gave it an amazing appearance coupled with a magnaflow exhaust with X pipe. The car sounded amazing and always turned heads. The down side.... the transmission(s).....
