1991 Lincoln Mark VII Bill Blass 5.0 H.O. from North America
Best car I've had
The locking actuators don't work, so my keypad and remote keyless entry is pointless right now.
Gas tank holders need to be replaced, transmission is going, some small electrical problems, and the clearcoat is going.
Great car, couldn't have asked for more. The 5.0 is a great engine.
Paint's going as is the tranny, but you can't complain considering it's 18 years old and has almost 130k miles.
It gets up and goes, and purrs, always get looks. Running BBK shorty headers into high flow cats with BBK X-pipe and Flowmaster Super40 series mufflers, would get Glasspacks but neighbors would call me in since I'm always out late.
The car feels extremely smooth, handling isn't its best aspect, but it's a great drag car. I also have BBK underdrive pulleys and a BBK cold air intake and MSD distributor, the car pulls.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Forgive me, but if this is the "BEST" car you've ever had, I'd hate to read about your worst. No offense intended, but from the problems that you are having, you either have a worn out beater, or maybe you're tearing them up.

"It gets up and goes, and purrs, always get looks. Running BBK shorty headers into high flow cats with BBK X-pipe and Flowmaster Super40 series mufflers..."
Well there's the reason for the looks... I'd look too, to see where all of that noise is coming from.

I know you have a "5.0" and all, but do you realize that at the end of the day, it is a LINCOLN!!! Not that, that is a bad thing, but it is not meant for "scaring children" , Lincolns are cars that are classy and elegant, go buy a Mustang and jack that up.

Yes even the "Hot Rod Lincoln" in the song was a Ford Model A with a Lincoln motor.

Yeah, I know it's a Lincoln, but that's what is funny, these cars are a dying breed and I have heard nothing bad about them besides they don't turn well. And that's what I love about this car, is sure it's not a Mustang, but everyone has a Mustang. It's great hearing stories from people saying "I wanted to buy this back in the day but it was too expensive." That gives you confidence and a sense of knowing that you bought a great car. People always say they are faster than they look, and it's so true.

Well they are a dying breed because people like you are killing the few good examples left. There's nothing wrong with a sleeper that can surprise people from time to time, but try to keep the elegance on the outside, huh?
