Supercharging Is Not A Crime: 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC

I've seen lots of strange things in craigslist adverts.  Dirty thumbs and oily rags obscure license plates for some unknown reason on a regular basis...and there is a certain subset of the population who can only find time to take pics of their car at the gas station at night (vampires?)..but this next car is a new highlight in the smorgasbord that is craigslist.  I present..the first...the only..crime scene tape in a craigslist photo shoot.  Bravo.  Well done.  Find this 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC with supercharger offered for $8500 in Shepherdsville, KY via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.

(This was my dads car, his project/play toy whenever he wasn't working as an OTR driver. He bought it around 2006, and spent a lot of time and money taking it from a car that was already in pristine condition with minimal wear and turning it into a very fast and fun car that is still in excellent shape and still runs great. Unfortunately, dad died last December. As much as i want to keep this car for a number of reasons, I cant. Ive got to take care of my family now that hes gone as well as my own since im having my 2nd child in a few weeks. I cant bear to just let it sit and collect dust so...hopefully someone will see this car the way my dad did and can make it their own)

See a better way to park at a crime scene?


  1. I kinda liked these back 10 or more years ago found a clean one on a local car lot and was so disappointed with the the way it drove and handled, my Mom had a late 80's T-Bird and it drove just like that car, not that the bird was a bad car really just not what i was looking for in a Lincoln and yup same underpinnings as Bird and Cougar.

  2. I can't decide if I should love it or hate it! :)

  3. I keep asking myself:

    "Why would a car like this be driven less than 1,000 miles a year?"

    And my answers are not encouraging.

    -Stan (...yeah, *that* Stan...)

  4. A few years ago I liked her a little, found a clean one in a local car park, and was so disappointed with the way I drove and drove that my mother had a T-Bird in the late 80's and she drove like that. Car, not that the bird was a bad car, it really wasn't what I was looking for in a Lincoln and yes, the same basics as Bird and Cougar.
