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.

This is my buddy's turbo-charged 4.6L
DOHC 32V 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII getting tuned and pulling a good run on the
Dyno producing 518.6
HP at the wheels and 555.8 ft lbs of torque! The car was looking rough at
the time the video was taken but it continues as a work in progress. It's
much better looking now.
