In 1996, Michael Kranefuss, owner of Team 37, saw the Mark VIII, which shared the MN-12 platform with the Thunderbird, as the logical replacement for the Thunderbird. The team built a NASCAR car based on the contour of 1996 Mark VIII. Wind tunnel tests were done on the completed car at the Lookheed plant in Marietta Georgia on May 7, 1996.

The car attracted a lot of attention during the two day test at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 8-9, 1996. John Andretti drove the Mark VIII for those test laps.

All that stuff is quoted, I didn't write it.

at this point moving to this would have been pointless. 97 was when the front got redesigned and 98 being the last year. oh what could have been though

This woulda been rather cool, since the first official Nascar race ever was won by a Lincoln. (Lincoln won another race in 1949, and twice more in 1950, but that was it for the marque in stock car racing)

#2, Yeah, what could have been...maybe involvement in Nascar might have saved the Mark VIII from the corporate ax, a la the Monte Carlo. ...and if that had happened, we wouldn't see this bullshit of common templates started by the 4-door Taurus stock car crap.

yeah if it had been used in Nascar, and of Ford had put the 5.4 in it as there was talk of, maybe that would have got sales up enough to keep it around
