Lincoln Mark VIII Test Drive
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.
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.

The Maserati Biturbo is a sports car
introduced by Maserati in 1981. The Biturbo is a two-door, four-seater notchback coupé
(of somewhat smaller dimensions than the BMW 3 Series of the time)
featuring, as the name implies, a two-litre V6 engine with two turbochargers and a luxurious interior. The car
was designed by Pierangelo Andreani, an engineer from the De Tomaso team,
somewhat influenced by the design of the newer Quattroporte III (Italdesign
Giugiaro), as can be observed on the front fascia.
All Maserati models from the Biturbo's
introduction in 1981 until 1997 (except the Quattroporte) were based on the
original Biturbo architecture, among
them the four-door 420/425 and 4.24v, the Spyder, the Karif, the 228 and
2.24v, the Maserati Racing and the later Shamal and Ghibli II, as well as
Maserati Barchetta which used an ultimate version of the V6 engine
When Alejandro de Tomaso acquired Maserati in 1976, he had ambitious plans
for the marque. His plan was to combine the prestige of the Maserati brand
with a sports car that would be more affordable than the earlier
high-priced models that had traditionally made up the Maserati range. In
fact, Maserati ceased making supercars like the ones developed under
Citroën ownership altogether, like the Bora and Khamsin.
The Biturbo was initially a strong
seller and brought Italian prestige to a wide audience, with sales of about
40,000 units. Sales figures fell in subsequent years. De Tomaso also used
another of his companies, Innocenti, to produce Biturbo body panels and also to provide final
assembly of Biturbos. De Tomaso later
sold Maserati to Fiat, who grouped the company with their erstwhile rival
Export versions came initially with a 2.5L V6, after 1989 it was enlarged
to 2.8 litres, while for Italy a two-litre high-performance version was
originally produced (to avoid the 38% sales tax imposed at the time on cars
displacing more than 2000 cc). The aluminum 90-degree SOHC V6 engine was
roughly based on the 2.0 L Merak engine, itself based on earlier V8 Formula
One Maserati engines, designed by Giulio Alfieri (1924--2002). The
carbureted 2.5L engine produced 185 hp (138 kW) and 208 lb·ft (282 N·m)
of torque in North American spec and slightly more elsewhere. Fuel
injection was fitted in 1987 raising power to 187 hp (139 kW). In 1989 the
2.8L engine bumped power to 225 hp (168 kW) and 246 lb·ft (334 N·m) of
torque for North America and 250 hp (186 kW) for Europe.
The Biturbo is number 28 in the BBC book
of "Crap Cars" and in 2007 was selected as Time Magazine's worst car of
1984, although they ranked the Chrysler TC by Maserati as a "greater
The Biturbo competed unsuccessfully in
the British Touring Car Championship in the late 1980s, the European
Touring Car Championship and the World Touring Car Championship (1987).
The Spyder version was introduced at the Turin Motor Show in 1984. The car
was designed and built by Zagato, their first work for Maserati since the
A6G/2000 of thirty years earlier. The Spyder version has a shorter
wheelbase, 2.4 metres (94 in). Still, since it is a strict two-seater, the
luggage space is larger than in the original Biturbo. On this shorter chassis the sporty
hardtop Karif was later developed
1995 Lincoln Mark VIII Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thanks for bearing with me and the lack
of uploading lately. I have a ton of videos to upload including vintage,
exotics, new models, and some unique things to come. I have recently moved
into a new house for my 4th year pharmacy school rotations and have been
packing, unpacking, and dealing with all of this for a while. Now I'm
finally able to slowly start getting back into the groove of things. I
will also begin working on a new update video fairly soon to let you all
know what has been happening lately. Thanks a bunch and enjoy the future

1962 Lincoln and Thunderbird Being Built
A visit to the factory while the 1962 Lincoln Continental (suicide doors)
and the Thunderbird are being built. See the whole process from body
parts being welded together, glass put on, paint applied and the cars
rolling off the line and on to a transport to the dealers. This is how the
middle class was born, making things.
1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC Start Up & Rev With Exhaust View - 103K
1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC
This has a Intech 4.6L 32 Valve DOHC V8 making 290 HP while paired to a 4
Speed Auto. It's essentially a Cobra V8 & also the same engine from my 2002
Continental only in my car it's detuned & in FWD.
This model began in 1993 until the Final year made in 1998. The Mark is
known to be the first Production Vehicle to offer HID ( High Intensity
Discharge ) Headlamps.
The Marks biggest issue was with the 4 wheel Air Ride suspension which was
prone to early failure & it is a costly repair. Many owners resorted to
Coil Spring conversion but it really killed the Marks Smooth ride.
