I think Your son should take anther look at the Lincoln. Not Cool?
wrong! The car was great stock and better if tricked out. Much better
than some wussy Honda. It seats 4 has a 5.0 V-8 stock, great lines and
plushy interior. Show him these web pages:http://tnmotorsports.com/lsc.htm

I stopped by to see a friend of mine and noticed an older Porsche 928
parked on the side street. Turns out it had been kept in a garage by a guy
who thought his son would love it when he got old enough. But he didn't.
Then my friend bought it and his son doesn't want it either.

Other than a distinct resemblance to a AM Pacer, it seems like it ought to
be a "cool" car for a teenager.

A Mark VII in good condition is still a "chick magnet". Maybe the kid
isn't aware of that.

Hey Paul, If you would like to see some of the cool things guys are doing to MK VIIs,
check out www.lincolnsonline.com. Thats where I got the idea. The Fox chassis Mustangs
and T-Birds are getting scarcer and more expensive now. Their upscale cousin is
starting to get some serious attention.

Re: Lincoln Mark V11

My Gosh! I had no idea they were getting thin. I just peeked at Ebay -
there are exactly 2 Fox Marks. You could buy two MK VIII's for the price of
one MK VII.

I miss my T-Bird Elan. It was an '84 - that year it had almost as much
gizmo-tech as the Mark. The dealer's wife had driven mine (she ordered it)
and the only option it didn't have was the talking warning box thingie.
When I joined a Hi-Fi store, the chief installer told me the car was the
best design for stereo he had ever seen. Speaker holes in the right spots,
aimed right, everything.

Thanks for the link!
Paul
