    I have to confess...I no longer own this car. I sent in the image for the COTM / calendar and then after it went to print, I sold the car to a fellow Mark VIII enthusiast named Clif Topper ...aka Heybob from other forums.
    I posted it for Sale in the end of December and the same day we struck a deal. he let me keep it for a few weeks through the holidays so in return I put 4 new tires on it and replaced the weeping oil filter housing gasket. detailed it up nice and let the kick-ass stereo go with it.
    I no longer own a Mark VIII and most likely never will as my automotive priorities have changed, except if a convertible comes along or a nice cordovan CE. Then again, should a financial windfall come my way, I would contract Jeremi L. to build one of his monster works of art
    I enjoy working on them, but mostly as a hobby rather than as a need. A daily-driver I already have, but a Mark VIII it is not, nor will ever be.

    I'll always consider myself a Mark VIII guy, but none reside in my name. Thanks for choosing my former ride as COTM JP!

    minor specs: 98 LSC Toreador red/prairie tan. AAS lowered coil conversion w/KYB's out back. rear upper shock tower bracing, Magnaflow exhaust, JMOD, killer stereo w/12" sub in trunk, 18" speedlines w/Nokian 245/45R18 tires. 97 alternator cover, tint, new accell COP's, motorcraft 12c's, mobile 1 oil, fresh MERCON V, and royal purple rear diff gear oil , Moog upper and lower control arms and ball-joints. LED lighting interior and mirrors. The car was a dream to drive...only thing I wish I did was fix the blend door actuator(top one broke/stripped in the HVAC box so no shortcut) and added a addco 1-1/4" rear sway bar.

    Still a great car, and a great picture. It counts.

    Thanks for sticking around after selling it. You're a valued member of this community.
