      Technically I guess it was the mkVIII Lincoln as it was introduced later and production ran slightly later than the Thunderbird but it was more or less an evolution of the MN12 platform introduced in 1989. So here is an early Super Coupe, not hugely an oddball but rarely seen built for competition away from the strip. Not sure why, quick and great handling cars for their size.

      I believe he is native to Elkhart Lake, these pics were taken at Continental Roadrace Showcase early last August. The car was run there a couple times but I think it was crashed once and was repainted as it is now.

      And of course, a car I would love to own in stock form, let alone these beauties.
