for being such a positive contribution to my enjoyment
of owning one of the finest automobiles made in the USA.
It has been many, many years since I have taken as much
pride in owning a vehicle as much as I do now with the
Mark VIII. I hope my humbling experiences may inspire
some half as much as those of fellow more seasoned LOD
members have inspired me. Keep up the good work.

This is Woodie
Maple's hot Garnet Red 1993 Mark VIII. Woodie says that
the LOD has been a tremendous help to him and has saved
him a bundle. After reading the LOD message board, he
has done the following to the car: 1-2 accumulator
piston change, Mercon V transmission fluid change, added
a transmission cooler, changed the MLP switch, drilled
out the air filter box and added a K&N filter, installed
a performance chip from Max RPM, installed new front
struts from Arnott Industries, replaced the multipurpose
switch that controls the windshield wipers and turn
signals, replaced the brake pads and resurfaced the
rotors on all four wheels. Woodie did all the work
himself, except for the MLP switch change.
(pghmk8 on the LOD). The car is basically stock with the
exception of the sensor lowering. The first thing
performed by his brother Ray (drgnfrm). It has 20%
tinted windows all around....with a strip on the
windshield. As you can see it is Blue....he is not sure
of the paint code or the actual color name, but it also
has a blue interior.....making it blue on blue. It is a
'93......MANY more modifications to come.....
When Wayne Morris
inherited this 1993 Mark VIII from his Dad in mid May
2002, it had 7995 actual miles on it. His Dad bought it
new in March of '93. It now (July 21, 2002) has 9530
miles on it. Most of the added miles were from the drive
from Dayton, Ohio to Wayne's home on Big Pine Key,
Florida - "South of Reality". The car performed
flawlessly on the trip averaging over 28 mpg. The Mark
VIII is in good company with his '90 35th anniversary
Super Coupe, '56 Thunderbird with 4 speed transmission
conversion and two Harleys. His Dad had winter driven
the car and not done a good job cleaning the wheels.
Consequently, the salt had ruined them. He put on a set
of new Octastars obtained from an LOD member. Also had
the windows medium tinted to protect the interior from
the vicious south Florida sun. Other than these two
items, the car is completely stock. The only option on
the car is traction assist.
