1984 PPG Mark VII Pace Car
#1
I was trying to locate photos of the 1984 Corvette PPG Pace Car (for the NCM sinkhole discussion) when I stumbled across a customized 1984 Lincoln Mark VII that served as one of the PPG Pace Cars:

Not that I'd find anything of the sort unusual, except for that rear C-pillar treatment - and I don't have to ask what it was grafted from either:

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:
Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.
Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.
Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

That car was the basis of the Roush-modified Mark VII "GTC". Out of a planned 50 units, approximately 8-15 were actually made. I have one. It has been undergoing a "restoration" for about 10 years now. It is almost complete. All body work and paint is done, all new leather interior is finished. Just need to put all the trim back on and its done.
I will post some pics a little later. I love the car, but I got stalled looking for a couple of trim items.

I had an 89 MarkVII LSC. It was quite possibly the best car I have ever had, in fact I would buy it back if given the opportunity.

Well, my 88' GTC is basically a stock LSC ( 5.0 HO ) with C&C/Roush-designed lower ground effects, lowered and "optimized" suspension, monochrome w/black trim paint scheme, custom BBS "RA" wheels, custom black/grey interior.
It is an awesome looking and all-around great car.

I have been wanting to sell it only because I have too many cars and my kids dont want to drive it. They think its an "old mans" car, plus it gets about 20/ mpg overall, if driven easily. Stick your foot down on the "go" pedal ( its fun to do that!)and it drops to about 17 mpg.

I am selling it for $4500 as is or $6000 "completed". It needs about 3-4 full days labor to install the rest of the little trim pieces.
