Actually my last car was a Lincoln Mark VII.
It was an excellent car but it rotted away.
I was debating between a Mark VIII and the Eldorado.
The looks of the Eldorado and the Northstar System sold me.
Oh....I did have a 1979 Eldorado Bairritz for a short time.
I love the Biarritz! One of my all-time favorites. And I had a Mark VII LSC as well.. I LOVED that car! But, my next car was the ETC so it kinda just got lost in the past. Lincoln does make a good automobile.. But, the Mark VIII didn't compare to the ETC to me.. The interior is different, but nice in the Mark.. Altogether, it's a nice car..
I think the Mark VIII LSC was more the rich man's Cobra. I mean it really was a Lincoln Sportscar.The good thing I can say about it is that any mods for the Cobra would more than likely work on that Mark.I'm partial to the Mark VII I mean it was one of the last V8 RWD American Luxury Sport Coupe.
You'd be surprise what you can do to them 5.0 LSC. Before I got my Caddy I was looking for one of them but decided I could build my Caddy into something badder and different that many folks down here haven't see.
