Yes welcome, I'm curious as to what part of the UK you are from? I travel somewhat frequently north of Manchester and love it up there.

Hi,

I actually live where your founding fathers left😆 The city of Plymouth on the Devon coast.
Love your 69 cat...

I love it when a plan comes together! Welcome!
Oh yes all fell together perfectly. Took a few weeks to come over the pond but the wait was worth it!

Okay Jeff, I must ask. How to you know this is a San Jose car? Did I miss James posting the VIN? Or do you see something in the construction of the car that says San Jose? Or did you know the car before James purchased it? Curious minds want to know. Thank you.

And to James. Congrats on your purchase. I too hope that you have many years of pleasant times with your new Cougar. Two guys you might want to get ahold of England are Barrie Dixion in Manchester and Tim Glover in Wirral. You should be able to get their contact information off the CCOA website. Now go take that Cougar for a spin around the block.
