    Yup. came with either the 5.0 or the 4.6 depending on the year. i believe the 4.6 came out in 95, the year before it was thrown in the mustang.

    Total sleeper possibility there. Won't be the fastest drag racing (heavy) or a corner carver (heavy), but as for being a GT car, yes the Mark VIII is a great choice. They can be had on hte cheap these days too. Not the most refined car out there but with a little effort, you can have one hell of a sweet ride.

    I didn't say they couldn't be fast, just not the fastest out there. Still a damn good ride though. I wouldn't turn one down.

    Not to down you or anything but from what I understand, they've been around since 92-93. I'm pretty sure the Tbirds got the SOHC 4.6 in that time frame, too.
