Looks pretty sharp, I suppose. O.K. interior, 4.6L V8 (Mustang?) engine.

Had the DOHC version of the engine for 280-290 hp. First use of neon gas for taillights.

I know you domestic freaks may hate the styling, but the last gen prelude is one of the best 4 bangers to drive!

I liked the Prelude, all gens.

The Mark VIII is another illustration of the fact that they don't hold up as well as Cadillac in looks, durability, desirability as a used car... nothing. Last-gen Eldorados still look good, especially in TC trim. The Mark VIII is nothing more than a tarted-up Thunderbird, and now whenever I see one, it's a ragged-out hooptie sagging on its air springs.

I personally think the Mark VII was a better effort.

I hated the front fascia on that Prelude, but they were a blast to ride in.

Heh... I'm not a domestic freak and I loved the styling of it. That's why I posted it. :P

Lumina Z34

Heh... And to think I almost had a Lumina sedan as my first car. My plans were to make it into a Z34 sedan. Would've been interesting, but I'm glad I got my GA now... even if it does have 80,000 more miles. :D

I think the Mark VIII looks really good in black. I love the last Eldo too, but the Mark just has a great sinister look to it.

Me no like the last-gen Celica. I liked the first gen (mini Mustang) before big bumpers, and I liked the first Calty-designed car... was that second-gen? The first California-designed Celica? I remember actually being excited to see a Celica with the longer nose... which meant it was a Celica Supra, with the inline six.

Now I think Toyota is the Anti-Christ.

I always liked the Mark VIIIs if they were in LSC trim <body colour grill>. In black I think they kinda look batmobileish.

I love the Mark VIII's. A guy at one of my "jobs" had one, mint and kept that way. It was the brilliant soft green I like, Ford used in on everything back then, but this green had a gold flake in it. It really stood out in the sun. Like Blu said though I did see many just sit on the used lots and never sell. They were however, brown and a strrange purplish color. Im with Z on the LHS, the first Gen, my Uncle bought one new when they were still NYer's. Love em, but still have never drivin one. Was going to check them out when shopping last time but there was that LSS and ...........sold !
