This is a great car! I've only had it a few months, but I'm pretty happy with it! I have been looking at the Mark 8 since I was in my 20's, and had the chance to get one (now that I'm 35!). It wasn't really my first choice when I started car shopping, but more like my 4th or 5th, you know, because today they are becoming harder to find with age. (My goal in mind was to find a full size auto with 2 doors and a V-8!) Once I found one, in a very popular color, red, I was really impressed! Lincoln has out done itself again with this model! Being the previous owner of a 2 door Mark 6, I can see that the 8 is light years ahead! It's too bad that this model is out of production today.

I purchased this car as a winter beater to drive to and from work, but never expected to fall in love with it! I have a number of Ford collector cars and have had pretty much everything American, Japanese, German etc. This car is bullet proof at 160,000 miles and untouched it will blow the doors off just about anything new on the road and give a good run to most anything else out there. It has an electronic power chip and cranks out about 350 horse but easy on gas. 50% black tint on glass, new stereo with original JBL system is excellent. I think I have another classic car on my hands!
Lincoln's premium touring coupe receives significant changes across the board. A new instrument panel houses a new stereo with larger buttons. A feature called retained accessory power makes an appearance on the Mark VIII, allowing passengers 10 seconds to close the window after the car is turned off.
