Re: Eliminators on the Market (May 2018)

"Now I understand how restorations can take a decade, but how do people stand not being able to drive their car for that long?!?" Mike, That's why you need a second one, so you have a back up and don't get withdrawal. At least that's what I used as an excuse to get my Eliminator, it was to motivate ...

Re: Have you driven your Cougar today?

In celebration of FE Cobra Jet Day yesterday my wife and I took the 69 Sport Special and the Cyclone to a show sponsored by the local Mustang club both placed in the popular vote.

Might want to get the VIN off the engine and post it over on the CJ site. Might have someones motor that would like to reunite them.
Should also share the VIN here as plenty of Cougars donated their motors to other cars.

Re: Mecum Today

Pinch welds are blacked out in the center but not on the lower rear quarters as I have underside shots of the car at MCACN when Mecum had it on display there. They never had the hood up when I was there though. But what wasn't mentioned in the Mecum write up is the dent / ding in the left fender and...

Re: Texas storms

I'd be trying to winch my Cougar on the roof... Cats don't like water. That's why I keep the Cyclone and Cougars separate. Don't need the wet cat smell in the garage.
