My Lincoln Mark VIII with sequential tail lights
Update: Because I have been asked so many questions about it, there is a
complete write up here:
Added sequential tail lights to the Mark VIII last night. Back in the day,
I had a 67 Tbird and I had two friends with 69 Tbirds and I have always
missed those sequential lights. In my opinion is is the way the Mark VIII
should have come from the factory. It really suits the car.
1993 Lincoln Mark VIII fast bags bagged
stock bags, drilled and tapped with 1/2" fittings. 1/2" valves with fill
and dump speed controls, still need to adjust the back, it moves too fast
for my taste. There is one (for now) Viair 380 compressor, a 5 gallon tank
against the back of the trunk and a 3 gallon tank in the spare tire area. I
put 'fast bags' in the title as it moves a lot quicker than the factory
the clicking is me hitting the buttons on the remote.
.. I've since sold the car, after I put it on tbird springs

Lincoln Mark VIII Movie.avi
This is a short movie about my two Lincoln Mark VIII's. The red one is a
1996 base model and the white one is a 1997 LSC. The '96 is mine and the
'97 is my wife's. They're both awesome. There's nothing like having "His n'
Hers" Lincoln Mark VIII's. These are wonderful cars. They're sleek,
beautiful, fast, luxurious, and just plain awesome. The Lincoln Mark VIII
was introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the outgoing Lincoln Mark VII.
The VIII was a vast improvement over the VII that it replaced. The ancient
225hp 5.0L pushrod V-8 was replaced with a modern all aluminum DOHC 4.6L
V-8 producing 280hp. Late in '95, the LSC returned with true dual Exhaust and 290hp from the 4.6L V-8. The VIII
also replaced the VII's McPherson strut front suspension with a proper
upper and lower control arm design with integrated air spring/shock
absorber units. The old 4-link live axle out back was also upgraded to a
fully independent setup with upper lateral links, lower H-arms, air springs
and shocks. The 4-wheel disc brake system was also upgraded with larger
rotors and better electronics. The VIII was also a much larger car than the
VII giving it more interior and trunk space than the outgoing car. About
the only caryover was the transmission. The VIII's tranny was essentially
the same as the one used in the VII. Other than that, the VIII was a
completely new car from the ground up.
