Great Cars....Loved Since New
Loved the Mark 8's so much that I have two, a mint '94 and a '97 "driver". Have had both for over 16 years and aside from converting the suspension to coils, the '94 has been virtually maintenance free. It's 25 yrs old, garage kept and only has 58k miles. (I drive the '97 more because it's less "perfect", and I'm still driving a Mark" without worrying so much about door dings, mileage etc. ) These cars are a dream to drive, lots of good American V8 power in a full size classic rear drive coupe!!!! What's not to like. Build quality, cosmetics and comfort are first rate, and all the electronic bells and whistles work flawlessly. It's got everything I want in a car....so much so that I can only think of three modern American cars that could come close for me.......the Caddy V8 Coupe, Dodge Challenger Hemi and the Mustang GT, all are much costlier for about the same level of personal driving satisfaction. Great car......way ahead of its time and an unbelievable value today, if you can still find a good one.
This is a GROWN MAN'S vehicle.... hands down! I've owned mine for two years, pulling out to do GROW UP things...golf course, weekend driving, summer fun, early fall dinner dates, etc. It has omph, but why bother flooring it? It's for cruising, styling being imoressive...IT'S A LINCOLN!!! Treat as such, beieve me it still turns heads young and especially old, experienced...that let's you know you have a SOON TO BE CLASSIC.Only MB still makes a large luxury coupe that has the performance , smoothness and room for rear passengers...IF YOU CAN AFFORD ONE, you see a Mark 8 in good condition GRAB IT!!! Nevermind a 6 series, that's performance...this is a best bet for a used luxury coupe...IT'S BIG MAN FRIENDLY TOO!!!
My first car
I have had this car for about two weeks now. I picked it up cheap with 94k miles on it. I have nothing really to complain about. It handles well even in rain and it has been a comfortable ride thus far. If you are looking for an inexpensive, fast, comfortable car then I recommend this vehicle hands down.
