The holidays, no matter your religion (or lack thereof), is a time when many a car freak has the downtime to think of something they’d really want. Another car? Maybe. More cars? Possibly. But I suspect many a Piston Slap reader is all about doing something to their car over the break. Here’s one of my projects: the Talking Lincoln Mark VIII, or MK-T for short.

- Dave M. On one hand Honda tends to make a strong, competitive product that should give you years of excellent service. On the other hand it's built on the bones of a GM product, who has a tendency to underbake their products until right before cancellation. NUMMI worked out well for GM; I wonder if this will work out well for Honda....
- RICHARD @mebgardner I have no issues with the way the car is configured. No offensive nannies.

- RICHARD @SPPP. It's the perfect use case. Most of my wife's driving is short trips around town. The car will get better MPG in that environment than interstate cruising.
- RICHARD The longest interstate trip I have been on so far is about 45 minutes. We live in Tennessee so that included significant elevation changes and travel at 75 mph. Next weekend, we will take a 3-hour trip for a wedding. I would not hesitate to drive long distances in this car. It is much more comfortable, quiet, composed than my wife's previous Ford Fusion Titanium while matching that car's performance. We drove from TN to Santa Fe, NM in the Fusion earlier this summer and that car became uncomfortable and tiring after about 3 hours behind the wheel.
