    Hi there. I'm new to the forum (I am the administrator/owner of the Chrysler Sebring Convertible Club @ www.sebringclub.net). This is my weekend drive / car show car. This is my second go around with a Mark VIII (the first time was a 1997 LSC about 10 years ago that had a bunch of problems).

    This 1995 LCS has 75,550 miles. It is literally in almost pristine condition (no rust anywhere, especially the under carriage). All 100K maintenance was done 3 months ago & just put on Michelin Defenders. Only change to the car was the stereo (2 days ago, I put in a 1 DIN - NAV/Bluetooth/DVD with a 4.5" screen - and I'll be installing a backup camera next week... it mounts to the license plate so no new holes in the car). The only issue is the "airbag reset" error comes on when I start the car (and all I do is press reset).... the thing is, there is no error (I have new sensors to install sometime in the next month).

    I'd say this car is (on the Haggerty scale of 1 to 5) is a solid 2.5. The pics below I took coming from California through the Grand Canyon & then to Illinois. I have to be honest, I have never seen a Mark VIII this clean or unmolested (the undercarriage and engine compartment look almost new).

    Anyhoo, I look forward to being a contributing member of this Lincoln forum. And a quick question, if you had seen this car for sale at some time - what is the most you think it is worth (in other words, if this car was a Mecum or Barrett & Jackson auctions - what do you think it would go for)?

    Thanks. I figured that the price would vary..... (Haggerty says $5,900 to $9,000) for one in my car's condition. I'm planning from going from State Farm over to Haggerty's insurance (so one needs to have a price to come up with that will buy another car in the same condition).

    amarine1 welcome to LVC. Really like the Mark a lot. You might want to look at becoming a member of Lincoln and Continental Owners Club LCOC. They can source hard to find parts through their market place. Members have meet and greets in your regions. I've been a member since 2015. It costs $48.00 a yr. You get a magazine, also good ad rates for members, cruise ins, and best of all you get Ford X-Plan discount on any new Ford or Lincoln vehicle. The more popular the model the more $ you save. Members have seen savings from $700.00 to $7,000.00

    Mark 8 Addicts are another great membership with other Mark VIII owners. They are from California but still its a great way to meet new people who can also give you insight on your car. https://www.mk8addicts.com/

    Temple Performance and Super Coupe Performance are other sources for you. Super Coupe Performance Parts

    Let us know if you need anything, keep us updated on your Mark!

    Welcome to the forum! Cheers!

    By the way, just in case anyone's interested. My brother Joe is selling a few Custom Black Truck Wheels. If anyone's interested, feel free to PM me.
