Head to Head

 

About “Ashley”

This is the second Mark VIII that I have owned. I bought it in January of 2005, and have been working on it ever since. I am getting close to the point where I will just be doing maintenance, and not worry about any more modifications. I used to drive it daily when there isn't snow on the ground. The MT Drag radials have limited use to sunny days now :)

About “96 Mark”

I bought this car from an Insurance Salvage Auction with damage from a tree that fell on the right windshield post and fixed the damage. I did a custom paint job with lots of clear coat.
