Getting out of Cougars...

#1

Post by Cougrrcj » 08 Jan 2014, 16:05

Due to lack of time/ambition/money/resources, I'm going to be getting out of 1-2-3 Cougars other than AlphaCat, but even that is open to negotiation...
None are drivable, and all need work. All extra parts reasonable, but I don't have time/effort to remove parts. YOU have to remove cars/parts. I also have some NOS 1-2-3 parts...

AlphaCat -'73 hardtop. numbers matching - but not stock - 351C-4V/auto and fully optioned. Gold/ginger.
BetaCat - '73 XR-7 hardtop. 351C-4V with non-numbers-matching 4V drivetrain. Pewter with black interior.
PartsCat1 - '73 XR-7 hardtop. 351C-2V/C6. White w/avacado interior. heads gone.
PartsCat2 - '73 standard. 351C-2V/FMX. Yellow w/ginger decore interior. Originally NV car, but now rusty from sitting in my back yard for 8 yrs.

Parts cats are on gravel drive, and 'sank into the swamp'. AlphaCat and BetaCat are indoors.

Pics on request, but remember that it is winter here in frozen Cleveland...

I thought that retirement was just around the corner and that it would give you time to tackle the Cougars again? Anything we need to know?

Just not 'feeling it' any more. Lots of other things are getting in the way.

It's sad to hear that you are moving on from the hobby. I hope whatever you do for a hobby/interest brings you happiness. Good luck with your sales.

I know how you feel. Every time I have to do something with the 428 I long for a 2 litre air cooled boxer engine

This year the plan is for my Cougar community to be reduced by three more and replaced with air cooled 4 and 6 cylinder fun cars with hair dryers attached

Then I can concentrate on getting the 69 to a standard I want and get the Eliminator track worthy while I have some fun with cars that I can get the engine out in less than an hour

Sorry to hear your moving on, especially , selfishly , cause there aren't to many of us 1-2-3 fans to keep the flags waving. I know I was out of the hobby for a couple of years but the stars realigned and I'm back. But all the best as you head off in other directions, maybe we'll see ya back again :smoke:

Sorry your upset but maybe you should put them in the Classic Cougars for Sale venue. And make it official that they are for sale and get them more exposure. Cursing at the community will not help at all. Get back on the meds dude.
