BTW, I think electronic ignition is pointless.

Hay anybody coming from a long way away, from personal experience and if you have the time; Stick to 2 lane Blacktop. You will be amazed by the friendly people you can find when driving through a little town at 25 MPH that you can never meet at 75 to 80 MPH on the interstates.

I would love to see your car in my driveway once again... The guy who sold me that car was a long time senior customer whom I really miss.

I was at WCCC last year just before the 50th show at Tacoma with Salt and Pepper.
It would be fun to attend an open house but it is a long way for me though. :think:

What if there was a trailer willing to go from east to west. Picking up cougars along the way so more of us could fly out. Anyone know anybody who could load up half a dozen cougars headed to oregon?
How about a Cougar train? That would be something to see...

Just like the 50th, this is also on my list of "Cougar Events" to attend. The trailering of her out sounds the best here with many stops along the way. Makes me remember a 5 week cross country trip I took in 1990. KOA's and many friends along the way. This year might be a push with other stuff going on, but there is always next year. The hang out sounds great with the install of any items being done on site with assistance if needed. What a great open house you have every year.

Any idea on how I might convince my very sweet wife that the best place to spend your 40th wedding anniversary is at a Cougar wrecking yard with a bunch of Cougarholics?

...the promise of expensive jewelry to accompany the trip? And a visit to the coast tacked on?

Spend extra time in the area. Driving up/down the Oregon coast is a great experience. There are lots of beautiful views and plenty of shopping experiences (if she is into that). A few days with us Cougar wackos and a trip for two on the coast... Now that is a nice trip.

You couldn't be much further away!

I have been getting back to your video lately... seems like other things keep coming up, but it's next in my video queue! It's gonna be one of the longest ever, there's so much detail, and it's hard to cut much of anything out because people want to know this stuff. Anyway, it's coming!
