Yeah ... I almost bought one years ago as a commute car for when I didn't want to drive my 300ZX in snow. Decided to get a Mazda 626GT instead, since it was cheaper and as a FWD, would do better in snow.

I only linked the Escort cause it's a Diesel Wagon. IDK why a 90s one got linked. It's not even a GT.

That is probably the only Mark LT being used as a work truck in the country.

I passed a Mark LT on the way to the airport the other day. I love those trucks, actually--slightly different styling on the same non-neutered F150. I wouldn't be surprised if they've depreciated worse than regular F150s from that era just because they're Lincolns.

I need to finish up the story I wrote about the 92 Riviera I picked up on a whim in Phoenix a few years ago. Paid $800 and I got all my money back. AND it was cheaper than booking a flight home (for two people). The digital dash was neat.

I kind of miss it. Whenever I go back to St Louis I drive down the street of the guy I sold it to just to check on it. I even ran into him once late at night with his girlfriend in the passenger seat. Still running strong!
