Abes Lincoln - 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC 32 Valve DOHC 4.6 V8 Hot Rod Luxury
In honor of President Lincoln's birthday, February 12th, I thought I'd post
this video of his namesake, the Lincoln Mark VIII. When Henry Leland
started Lincoln Motor Company in 1917, he named it after our famous
President. This Lincoln has the monochromatic trim all the way around, an
elegant leather interior, and a 32 Valve DOHC 4.6 V8 under the hood. These
cars really do offer luxury and performance in one complete package.
Perhaps it would be the choice of our beloved President, if he were still
alive today. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

I should have tightened the camera to the tripod better as its rattling and
very annoying. Somewhere from the camera, editing to youtube the 1080p
widescreen was ruined so ill redo asap.
This is a 93 lincoln mark 8 with 4.6 dohc, stock Exhaust. I opened up the intake tube and
mcguivered a cold air intake. It still has snow tires on so there a little
noisy, they are 215 60r16s so first gear only goes to 95kph; with 225's it
goes to 102kmh. All of the accelerations are a roll into the full
acceleration, i dont want to wear the winters too much.
I did the hid conversion as you can see in the first 15 seconds of the
movie, they are morimoto mini h1's. I had to make a thermoforming machine
to create the clear lenses as the originals were fluted.
It has coil over suspension instead of the air ride, no big difference
really. Im going to redo the suspension in summer so im not being careful
in the backroads. It currently has 215000km on the body but only 50,000km
on engine and transmission.
