  • Back in a Lincoln as a Daily

    And it feels great. From 2000 through 2011 my dd was a Lincoln, and I'm back. I'll snap some outside shots in a few when the sun comes back out, but I took this halfway home yesterday. Very happy.
    2017 MKZ Reserve 3.0T
    This is a company car, 3 year lease with 24k miles/year. I travel approx 19,500 miles for the company, so that leaves me 4,500 miles per year for fun. Mostly winter fun tho, as the Marks are driven so long as no salt, snow, or rain are possible. I'd like to thank my company, they're awesome! But I do work my ass off for them so...

                    flippin beautiful. it ALWAYS takes me a few years for a "new body car" to grow on me/get used to, and even begin to "like" the looks/styling/ergonomics....well, except the Mark VIII....I sat in a 93 at the 92 SF International auto show and fell head over heals for it since I had my eye on a Mark VII LSC for months leading up to it.
                    The "new" Lincolns did NOTHING for me since 2001....at all...the LS...the Conti...the new Towncars (whales, from 98-12)...
                    but lately seeing all these MK'S cropping up here (I cant keep up with Lincoln's alpha-lunacy).

                    But THAT.....THAT right there is BEAUTIFUL!!!.

                    congrats to you...the look from tire to top is perfect...and damn straight you deserve it...you work your butt off for them, and then let you rest your butt in that.

                    Nice ride pal....real darn nice.

                      I plan on going back to a Lincoln for my daily driver very soon, but I am not buying a new Lincoln.
                      I am taking my '97 Mark VIII out of storage and will be driving it from NJ to Texas in either November or December.
                      It will be taking me to work every day in San Antonio.
                      I changed out all the timing chains a few years back, but then never got to drive it much after that due to an assignment that had me living in Ukraine for nearly four years. When I returned to the USA, I accepted a position in Texas. My daily driver is currently a Ford Escape, but I miss the Mark and will see if it can handle The Texas Hill country on a daily basis.

                        Glad to hear you're back, and driving the Mark again. Texas sounds like a very nice place to be in November and December. Congrats on the new position!

                          San Antonio is a nice town, I spent 9 very long weeks there. I've got to go to TX this winter for training and I think I might just drive my Mark down for that.
