I bought this car after owning over 9 Fords and a Lincoln Mark VII. This car has nothing but reliability, comfort, and power. Now has 120,000 miles and nothing but balljoints replaced by me at home. Chip, exhaust, and air system added for over 300 horsies. Will crack 2nd gear in an auto. Ma and Pa have a 1995 Z-28, my car will spank it. Me and the wife and kids take it on vacations with much comfort and little complaining. Awesome air conditioning, awsome MPG up to 28 MPG. Air ride system still original. Car has DVD player with JBL sound, sounds like you are in a theater. All of this for a car that I bought for 2300. Pearl paint not faded. Great power options.
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!
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 bought this car as a daily driver but knew it was probably one of the nicest cars ever built by any company. The styling, performance and quality of this vehicle is way beyond anything built before or since. I am sure this is a classic car in the making. The Cobra engine has 4 cam shafts, 32 valves, and port fuel injection makes it untouchable. I would buy another one if they still made them but you can't kill this bulletproof engine as long as you maintain it.
I purchased my 95 model in sept of 2000 with 68k miles on the odometer. I was leary of the supposed "High Mileage" and was prepared to spend a few thousand dollars on repairs, since the car was so close to 100k miles. I "put off" a recommended transmission cooler AND some very much needed transmission upgrades because I thought it'd be a waste of time, since the transmission would surely DIE right about the 100k mile mark. 100k miles passed without so much as a hicuup! Around 175k I had replaced all the air bags at a cost of 650 for parts. Install took a little bit of a saturday afternoon. Currently I have 5000 drag strip passes on the car 297,000 miles
