Robroy, this thing scoots pretty darned good. Surprisingly good for only being a 3.9l V8. The wiki has some decent write ups about the different years in the references.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln_ls
Long story short, $11.900 on the windshield reduced to $8900, salesman gave me a paper with $8400 after the test drive which turned into $8000 after another fifteen minutes of talking. Did some math, called the bank and ended up with and agreement to buy it for $7700 out the door.
I did some quick eBay shopping and found a nicer steering wheel for $53 and some OEM floor mats for around $30. I'll probably end up with some OEM HID headlights and a louder exhaust before it's all over.
