A pair of 12.5 second passes in my Mark VIII, one from outside the car, one from inside. The blue light you see on the dash indicates the water/meth system is active, the red light indicates the Nitrous system is active. Both go green when in use. The greenish rectangle with numbers in it near the bottom of the console is the air/fuel meter. For a brief second you can see the remote that I use to control all of this, NO extra switches in my Mark VIII!
12 second Mark VIII daily driver
This somewhat chronicles the last year of me trying to turn my Mark VIII into a reliable 12 second car that is also perfectly behaved for daily use. I drive this car to work, to client locations, on road trips, and every weekend I take it to the drag strip and lay the smack down on Mustangs, LS1s and imports. After I am done I adjust the climate control, memory touch the seats back to comfort settings, and drive back home getting 28 mpg in silence and luxury. The Lincoln Mark VIII *IS* the gentleman's hot rod.
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.
Mark VIII breaks loose
We were about to part it out, but we thought we would let it loose first. If you need any Mark VIII parts, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

1997 Mark VIII LSC Cherry Bomb Dual Exhaust
This is my wife's 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC with new Cherry Bomb dual Exhaust. It has had the 3rd cat removed and replaced with an H-Pipe and a pair of Cherry Bomb glasspack mufflers in place of the originals. I think it sounds quite menacing. And so does everyone who has heard it. And my wife loves it!
