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. Good day for a drive and show was able to take back roads for a portion of the trip which is always more fun. It was an all makes show but mostly Fords. No other Mercury's / Cougars. For that matter no early higher performance Mustangs either. But it was a good show with a complimentary lunch and down to earth people.

Most of you know I was able to take this one out yesterday after getting the front suspension aligned. First time on the road for it since at least 1992.

More road trips soon. I need to do some adjustments to get it running the way it should.

That's just a cool car, Neal. Looks great, and have enjoyed reading your rehab exploits!

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

Local car show at the high school. They are raising money for a rally cross car school project.

Here is a picture of the Eliminator from last weekend's local cruise in. The photographer Russ Muller does a great job. Definitely better than I could ever do.

Bryan your eliminator looks amazing. Love the paint and the stance. And the wheels look just right too - do you mind sharing what the tyre/ wheel combination is?

Steve thank you for the compliment. I really like the end result of the wheel, tire, and suspension combination. The fronts are 15 x 7 with 4.25" back space (Wheel Vintiques) Magnum 500 with 235 60 BF Goodrich tires, rear are 15 x 8 with 4.5" back space (Wheel Vintiques) Magnum 500 with 245 60 BF Goodrich tires. The rear suspension is stock height but I'm sure the leaf springs have fatigued some. Front springs are the 550 lb rate 1" lower springs from NPD. https://www.npdlink.com/store/products/ ... 30360.html

I took Ginger out to Port Angeles WA last Sunday for a little get together with 6 other Cougars. Ginger is the 3rd on down. I had planned to drive the 71 out. But I have not gotten her to run right yet. I may have time to work on her this weekend...

Thanks for the details. I’m aiming for same look, but with new springs in the front think I’ll need to do the arning drop to get the front down a bit.
