    89 LSC Lincoln Wheels??

    I remember the 88-92 Mark VII LSC had wheels very much like this too and they should fit?? I think they look good.

    Got me a set of the Charchol Bullitts today, think they will look nice on my 1985 1C with the charchol trim.

    The wheels are 16x7 and I have NO IDEA what they are from. I do know that they will bolt up on an SVO, but they will stick out some. I think they would fit better with an SN95 set-up or look good with the Motorsports fender flares and stock suspension. I have had these for about 14 years and bought them from a buddy that had them on a ford ranger (year unknown). Jason

    Stats completed

    Hi All,
    well after a week back at the coal face the laundry is gettin done, Dad got safely back to NY and I've finally had a chance to sit down and go through the captains log. Here are the results.....

    Mile travelled: 6782
    Interstates travelled: I-205,84,82,90,94,39,74,65,75,40,30,20,10,17,15,80
    Fuel stops: 22
    Fuel used: 261.77 Gallons for a total fuel bill of $873.05
    Highest price: $3.959. Kent, TX
    Lowest Price: $3.039. Sweetwater, TX
    Best MPG: 30.15. Mudds Park, AZ to Kanab, UT
    Worst MPG:21.97. Blame it on the Octane Booster. Mr Hadden, enjoy!!!!
    Average speed: only kept records the first half but it was consistently in the high 70's
    Number of times we stopped to work on the Canuck's car: 2
    My Car: 1
    States visited:Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Tennessee, Texaas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin.

    Well, there ya have proof perfect that an SVO can do the cross country run and make it home in one piece. The only drama with my car was a little miss just outside of Wendover, UT that was fixed with a can of Seafoam. Damn bad fuel. Thanks god my auxillary shaft blew two weeks before

    Highlights, THE REUNION , visiting with Bill Hatfield and Mike Fleming, seeing the country, the Pima Air and Space museum, the Corvette Museum, the Grand Canyon, Bryce National Park ( but next time it needs to be daylight!!!), that 4E that was always on my tail, NOT getting a speeding ticket, making it home in one piece........

    But, most of all saying that I got to go on this awesome adventure with my Dad. That's what made it super special and the most fun. Thanks to everyone who was at the reunion for making him feel so welcome.

    CYA next year

    P.S.- pics to come

    Not counting Alaska, Texas is big enough to be considered 3 or 4 "normal" states, so I can see the price difference.

    Gas prices are still funky here. There is a small refinery that services the Tyler area (near me), and also the Dallas area, 80 miles away. Gas in Dallas is 8 to 10 cents less than Tyler.

    Normally, gas prices are higher along the Interstate, but around 100 miles east or west of the Midland/Odessa area (lots of big refineries and oil wells), it's cheaper along the Interstate than in the "cities".

    Throw in the facts that Texas exceeded California in Wind Generated Power in 2007, Sweetwater bills itself as the "wind power capital of the US", and there are a couple of off-grid wind systems that feed the oil producers around there, and I can certainly see the gas being the cheapest in Texas.
