Default My "new" 1997 lincoln Mark VIII LSC

Just thought i'd post some pictures of my new ride I actually bought it in may but forgot to post pics here.
(These pics my dad accidentally turned night shot on lol)







Stats:

4.6L 32 valve (4 valves per cylinder) V8
Aluminium Teksid Block
290 HP stock
True dual 2.25" exhaust stock
It's basically a detuned 96-98 Cobra Mustang Motor.

so far all i've done is a cold air intake, a new Double din head unit, and 2 12" Kicker competition subs.

my plans for the future are:
Exhaust cutouts for when i go to the track (ordered)
Trac Lock rear end
3.73 Rear gears
Drag slicks (I have to find a good set if 15" rims that will fit this bolt pattern first)
and well into the future (or if i suddenly come into a large sum of money lol) a Vortech super charger.

Fuel economy actually isn't bad on V8 cars...i've got a friend who runs about 30MPG with his Northstar.
