I would like to thank the officers and all of LOD members 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.
Jason Urso (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.
