1997 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC - Vortech Supercharged

Pit Crew

Hot would love to throw her hat in the pile as a hotrod Lincoln!  She's earned it with her 390 RWHP original engine with a Vortech V3 SCi blower and all the necessary supporting mods that hide beneath her classic lines.  I've owned her since 2012 and she is now a show car, garage queen and robust advocate for all Lincoln Mark VIIIs. 

 

Here's an article and video from Prancing Ponies All Women Owned car show during Monterey Auto week...

I wish mine was as fast as yours, but it's just naturally aspirated with a few bolt ons.

IMG_5392.JPGHi - I'd like to enter the Fender/Hot Rod Lincoln contest.  I don't have a vintage Lincoln in my fleet, but I thought true fans of Commander Cody and the song Hot Rod Lincoln would dig this photo from a few years ago.  That's guitarist Bill Kirchen behind me, the guy who's Telecaster licks propelled the Lost Planet Airmen for many years, and the guy who wrote the guitar lick for Hot Rod Lincoln.  Bill is an Ann Arbor kid, who played and toured with Commander Cody during their best years, and is known in guitar circles for his use of Teles - he coined the term (and wrote the song) "Hammer of the Honky Tonk Gods" describing his favorite plank-style guitars.  Bill was famous for unbolting the neck on his Tele for airline travel - even installing threaded inserts in the body after he wore out the neck attachment holes.  The instrument we are playing is called a Kelly Pinecaster - built out of recycled wood from the NY Bowery district, and in this case, it's a fat neck, no truss rod, and a one-piece construction.  The photo is from 2018 in Traverse City, MI - we hired bill to play with a few local legends for a Nordic ski party we throw every year.  Bill was a fine gentleman and put on a heck of a show for us and remains a friend to this day.

Of course I am not eligible to win, but I felt like sharing some of my Hot Rod Lincolns: 17311292_10154523104923269_1066470420920330498_o.jpg

1983 Continental: all stock 5.0, not fast, but waaaay faster than a turbo diesel Mercedes.

1979 Collector's Series Mark V: the old 400 cid motor was ditched for a stroker 460 with EFI and ton of more stuff.

Right. I too am a drummer with perfect pitch. A professional drummer once gave me a great nickname:

 

"Russian N. Dragon."
