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.

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

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

Cons: air suspension

1998 Lincoln Mark Viii — Overall, the car has very good driving dynamics. Lincoln did a good job tuning the suspension. The 4.6L V8 gets good gas mileage and has good acceleration, despite the 3.07 axle ratio. The lines of the car still look great even though the car is over 10 years old. This car is a keeper.

Pros: Engine, Driving Dynamics, Styling

Cons: Steering wheel is too small, A little cramped for taller drivers

Luxurious Yet Sport! — I loved how it was luxury but at the same time had the horsepower to outrun or race a lot of cars. It is just a all around gorgeous and strong car!!! I would recommend anyone to get one because these cars run forever and i have not had any problems with mine!!!

Pros: Horsepower with luxury!

Cons: No complaints!

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!

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!!

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: Performance, reliability, comfort

Cons: they don't make it any more

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!!!

Pros: Sports car handling and pure luxury

Cons: Getting old and parts are hard to come by.

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.

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

One Of The Most Fun Cars I Have Had The Privilege To Own And Drive. By Roger

Fantastic car. 0-60 in the wink of an eye and gets 27mpg on the highway. Air suspension is a bit costly when it gets old but fix it once and it is good for another 15 years. One of Fords best! Read More
