My second Mark, these are great cars

1996 Lincoln Mark VIII 2dr Coupe


Quick with a 4.6 DOHC all aluminum, and with mods like exhaust work, different rearratio with limited slip, air intake mods this is a low 14 second car, and there is virtually nothing on the road that can roll with it. It handles great expecially for a big car, and is beautiful with lots of style and design innovations. Air ride is nice but not dependable-you have to figure on replacing components every 6 to 8 years. Headlights are a joke, but HID kits on ebay cost $77 and are simple to install, so that problem is history now. Still able to get parts, but the 96 is the most unique and rare, so this'll be an issue one day. I will always have one-great car!

Best Features

Cockpit styling, classic lines, powerful, big revving aluminum engine that is decent on gas, somewhat easy to work on, trans is nice with necessary mods, tunable engine for much more power and drivability, memory seats, built-in garage opener, great sound and AC, handles great, fast and fun-get one!

Worst Features

Air suspension is flawed and relativly expensive to fix, headlights are awful but can be easily fixed for less than $100, trans has known weaknesses that can also be fixed for less than $200 if not too far gone. That's about it-and it is 12 years old, so that's not too bad.
