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.
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!

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
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!

Lincoln Mark VIII Fast Bag Setup
"SET-UP: 6 valves - 4 SMCs for fill and two small Snap Tite (3/32" orifice)
valves for dump.
The front and rear were set up to raise for one second each. The rear goes
way too high if not slowed down. The front goes too high as well. The car
was also timed to dump for six seconds. The second portion of this video
shows the whole car raising off a one-second pulse. The rear still was a
bit fast and goes a little high. I installed a ball vavlve on each bag to
slow it down. Dump was set for three seconds."
Found this somewhere, this isn't my car!
1995 Lincoln Mark VIII Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour w/ Bass Demo
I FINALLY got a chance to find a Mark VIII, you just hardly see them
anymore, on of my personal favorite cars from Lincoln back in the day. In
this video I give a full in depth tour of a 1995 Mark VIII with custom Exhaust, sound system, and lowering kit.
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.

Air Suspension - Can You Really Have it All?
In the past I've thought of air suspension as a modification reserved for
trucks, low riders, and show cars. But what about sports cars? Is it
possible to have the look you want at a show, the handling you want at the
limit, and the practicality of clearing speed bumps and driveways? The guys
from Accuair Suspensions say there is, so we put their Audi S4 to the test.
