Hi,

Does this group include Continental owners, or is it just for Mark VII owners?

thanks!

Welcome, sure let's hear about it. We like them all, they all are similar in most ways that matter. Read through the older thread of new owners, and the many threads that display common things to do, look out for etc.

For one example, if your car hasn't had the ignition switch replaced in the last ten years, do it now. Those older pre-90 components are known to partially separate(there are two halves), causing various electrical gremlins. Regards,

Hi Liliane and welcome from the "Left Coast". The Fox Body Continental (All Continentals built between 1982 through 1987) is just a Mark VII with four doors, as far as I'm concerned. I have one, too, so you are in the right place.
