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.
1996 Lincoln Mark VIII Seafoam Treatment
I seafoamed my 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII today. I haven't done it in a while
and it shows. There was a lot of smoke this time. The white '97 Mark VIII
LSC next to it is much cleaner. The last time I seafoamed it, there was
very little smoke. According to the descriptions on the can, Seafoam is
supposed to break up carbon deposits and clean the induction system,
valves, tops of pistons, etc. It is also supposed to get rid of the rotten
egg smell associated with clogged catalytic converters. Fortunately, my
cats are still in pretty good shape. I don't know if Seafoam really works,
but I know my engine runs smoother after a treatment. And it sure is fun to
Note: Eventually, I'm going to make a more detailed step-by-step video with
someone else holding the camera. This was obviously done very quickly. Next
time, I plan to use 3 bottles. One for the crankcase, one for the intake,
and one for the gas tank. Now, you've got to remember to change your oil
IMMEDIATELY after seafoaming your crankcase. Or else the stuff will destroy
your seals and gaskets. Running it through the oil is like high performance
Motor Flush. It cleans the crap outta your engine block.

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!

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.

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII
LSC. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of
this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
12 sec Mark VIII outside and in
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!
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
