My 1994 Buick Regal 3800 is going to roll over 130k in the next few months. For a 12 year old car, it runs great and looks OK. I'm just starting to get that itch...purely mental. Usually not cheap. Any thoughts on the 2003 and up Lincoln LS V8s? I like the looks of them and read good things about the chassis and such. I tried to do some research on them, but haven't tried that hard, or been that successful at it. Where did the 3.9 V8 come from? Ford? Jag? Is this engine easy to work on? Reliable? I usually try to do my own maintenance. Are parts and stuff cheaper than something like an Audi?
