What's up guys, figured I would share some pics. I know some will and won't like. 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII custom air ride all the way around, interior, paint, lambo doors, lots of new parts. Still rides good, as well as 22's do. Hope I still remember how to post pics







I had just put these on after the DUB dirty dogs (see my old posts). They are 22" Effin 419's from Starr, discontinued. 245-30-22" Lexani tires

That's all the way down of course. Used to look like this at ride height.

Well, as long as you like it, I guess that's all that matters....nice paint job.

So you have some kind of aftermarket bags on it? I don't know...the wheels themselves look ok, but they are just too large, makes the car sit too high...I have 18 inch wheels and I wish they where 17s....how does it ride?

Its seems to be a show car anyway but the big wheels are stressing the car a bit with not enough side wall flex in tire. But the execution is very nice. Your got a nice paint job that goes with the high class side of style. Its badass I say. Post some shots if you have some interior changes made. Those are expensive cars to keep it all perfectly in order. I have worked on a couple just like yours and yours seems flawless exterior wise. Stock wheels would be too lame for that paint scheme anyway.

I like it. . . What are the custom air components if you don't mind me asking. I like the paint and IIRC the interior matches the two-tone's lines, right? Looks like it in the picture with the door up. I still remember your first set of pictures showing the interior thinking it looked really nice!

I'll say it again... It looks amazing!

One thing I really like about this site is that although most people here have a similar style, if the thought process, effort, and quality are there people will respect different designs and styles.

You've heard it before, you'll hear it again. Not my personal taste, but it's not my car. It does look awesome in my opinion. It isn't over done, which too many people do. If you love the car, then that is all that matters. Trust me when I say, my bird is UGLY, but it's the sexiest thing on the road to me. Good luck with it, keep up the good work and keep that thing alive.

I love my V8, but I'd love it more if all 8 cylinders worked. (they do now)

It looks like the guys at Big Papa's hooked you up...

Did Big Papa's do all the Interior, Paint, Lambo Doors, and 22" Wheels for you?



From the looks of it..Big Papa's does some pretty good work..

That must have set you back about 10 G's??



That car looks clean!


Not my taste though..

How would you know ? And why are you always trying to make fun of something you dont like or dont know anything about, posting pictures like the H2 that has nothing to do with the Mark. When was the last time you actually rode in a car with 22's .. like you have experience.

The air springs make a big difference in the ride quality. My buddys Charger on 22's with low profile tires also rode very nice, I was surprised to say the least.

Those are lyrics from a very popular and very awful rap song that they play on the radio nonstop. That said, I'm not a fan of wagon wheels, though the Mark does do it relatively cleanly.

I like it. Personally I dont think i'd use 22's but its a matter of taste and opinion. That said they look good on yours and the car has amazing attention to detail. Not overdone.

VERY Nice custom Mark.

I love everything about it.

Looks awesome when the bags are down but it does look a bit odd at normal ride height.
