Cons

Expensive replacement parts

Love It! — Awesome car...Built very well. 4.6L DOHC engine has plenty of power and achieves nearly 30 mpg on the highway! 290 HP & 290 TQ Looks good and rides well, even with airbags replaced with springs. Best looking interior of any car I've ever been in. Very comfortable front seats but there's not enough head room or leg room for rear passengers. HID headlights are awesome looking and work great. Distinguishing neon taillight looks really cool, unlike any other.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Wonderful ride, fast, sleek, responsive, comfortable, luxurious

Cons

10-cd changer mounted in trunk, rear seat too small for 6' rider on long trips

Sleeper Car Of The Late 90s — This was the sleeper car of the late 90s. The LSC version kicked up the power and added a sport suspension. In black-on-black (like we had) the car was positivly sinister to look at, but a dream to drive. I miss the luxurious interior and comfortable seats. The big 4.6l V8 engine churned out 290 hp with ease. The main reason we got rid of it was because our growing teen-aged son could no longer fit in the rear seat comfortably for long trips.

Air ride

98 Mark Viii Lsc — The 290hp 32V V8 has plenty of power and torque. Air ride went out so I replaced them with 1.5" lower coil spring conversion kit. The car is fairly nimble for the size and I so fun. Kinda sucks in the winter but is still FUN!

It feels like oyu are in your mothers lap when you drive this car.

Cons

air suspension

Like Heaven On Wheels — Words can't describe the ride. You have to drive one. 0 to 60 in 6.0 flat. The paint still looks like it was just painted after 10 years. 27 MPG on the highway. Hugs the road like it's on rails.

Pros

FAST, bright HID headlights, full neon tail lamp, nice stereo, dash light up like an airplane cockpit at night!

Cons

Parts are getting harder to find as it gets older. Some parts such as HID bulbs cost a FORTUNE if you can even find them Has so many computers you have to be a very qualified person (thank God I am!) to repair it!!

Lincoln Mark Viii Lsc — This car was 10 years ahead of it's time when it was built and can compete with any sport luxury car on the road today! It's sleek, loaded with bells and whistles and is FAST, FAST, FAST! Oh, did I mention that it's fast? Seriously, it has a 4.6 liter DOHC engine that cranks out 300 horsepower and is found in the Mustang Cobra R. Classy and sporty, what more could you ask for!

The Perfect Coupe — LOVED this car. I loved the way it looked, the way it drove... it was a big highway cruiser that loved to tool down the backroads and could outrun most anything that pulled up next to it. I never had a major mechanical issue (well, not that was the fault of the car... a botched tune-up landed her back in the shop when a cross-threaded spark plug blew out of the engine). If I found a nice enough one for sale tomorrow I would buy it, but since they stopped making them 10 years ago, I doubt that will happen.

Pros

Sports car handling and pure luxury

Cons

Getting old and parts are hard to come by.

45

Power And Class — By far the best car I have ever owned. It's a hotrod wrapped in pure luxury. The power of a Mustang GT and the comfort of a Lincoln. Air ride, power everything, butt warmers, back warmers powered by a 4.6L 32 valve DOHC Ford powerhouse. Glide along in style or show a ricer your rear neon taillight as you leave him in your rear view mirror!!!

The Hot Rod Lincoln — A great car to mod and have fun with, and still look classy in. A real luxury cruiser, but still a sports car at heart. It's a T-Bird with a Cobra engine with big comfy heated power memory seats in it.
