Hi, just a quick intro of myself. Never owned one, ALWAYS wanted a Mark II. Someday hope to acquire one that will alleviate that desire. As a child here in the SF East Bay there was a white one that resided about 4-5 blocks from our home. I used to go around the neighborhood and ask people if they wanted a car wash and actually used to make pretty decent money for a 11-12 year old kid. I never got the guy to let me wash his, although I tried many times!

Hope to educate myself more about this incredible car through the forums.

Welcome Tom,

These cars are very special. IMO, the Mark II is automotive design perfection. The design theme was "Modern Formal" and they certainly achieved just that. In my eyes, to this day, the styling is timeless.
