The Mark VIII is one of my all time favorite vehicles. It is svelte, sleek, aerodynamic and fast, with incredible handling for such a big car. It has the Ford Mustang Cobra engine under the hood and the dynamic air suspension lowers the car when it is cruising above 60 MPH. I have owned many over the years, I like the second gen made in 1997 and 1998. Extremely reliable and technically advanced and 27 MPG all day long at 70 MPH with AC and cruise on. The naysayers about this car are people that don't understand the technology and design involved in producing the Mark VIII. Actually, all S Class Mercedes vehicles after year 2000, use the same type of air suspension. Lincoln was 7 years ahead.

I have always been in love with the second generation Mark VIII, since it was released in 1997. I call one of my MK 8's the Millennium Falcon, especially at night when the neon lights fill the back end with a single glow. I call my Black LSC Darth Vader since it has no chrome and it wears the black mask. The aerodynamics on this car are incredible, in 1993 Ford engineers took a stock MK 8 to the salt flats and ran at 182 Miles per hour, with the stock 295 HP cobra motor. The interior is far ahead of it time and one of the most ergonomic designs ever produced by a US car co. Turn signal diodes inside the side mirrors were 7 years ahead in time. The air suspension was 17 years ahead and Mercedes S Class adopts the design in 2000. The fuel economy at 27 MPG is great and the passing power on two lane roads is out of this world, 60 to 90 in few seconds. It is too bad that Lincoln stopped making this beautiful design to produce a 6000 LBS navigator that drives like a woolly mammoth and looks kike a box of rocks. Hopefully Ford will bring back the Mark 8 .
