A few things from NPD:

They have asked the manufacturer for an exact list of what you will get to avoid any confusion about what the drawing provides. I will update here when we have it.

NPD is not running the contest ClassicCougarCommunity.Com is so direct any contest related questions to CCC.COM

NPD will get the winners names and addresses from us. Winners outside the US are responsible for all shipping, duties, taxes, brokerage charges, etc.

The winner must complete the install within 6 weeks and provide magazine quality images for use by NPD and the manufacturer.


Here are the sample pictures.

The HID/halogen versions needed a wiring solution to cope with the older original headlight system. Would these also need that solution? Would it be a complete kit, so that all the winners need to do is adapt and install everything?
I’m asking because if it’s not a “complete” kit extra parts ordering may be required if they are not in the kit.

I would think being LED that extra parts would not be a problem as long as they are in sealed beam type housings.

I dunno... they look kinda cheesy, well, maybe not the white ones so much. Are those the actual lights we're talking about here?

There are actually three versions, white, and new black out version not pictured, and the multi color. Since the 123 cars don't have headlight covers they will get the multi color. There will be a drawing for each generation of Cougar.

So I was thinking about this a bit more... And while the halo headlights look really cool... I'm thinking they are going to be REALLY hard to see on a car with hidden headlights, like ours >.>

Maybe the color balance in the photos is just off, but running red LED rings in the headlights can't possibly be street legal.

Is it even a projecter LED in the center or just an HID bulb with a ring of LEDs around it?

I wondered about the legality of running red lights on the front like that... It doesn't seem like a great Idea, but if I understand it correctly the color is more or less infinitely adjustable. I have seen something like these on a few different colored cars where the lights matched the car and it looked pretty good. Those cars were parked at a show, and not being operated on the street. I suppose you could put a switch on them. I do think that these would be fun combined with the electric headlight motors... kind of a big cat opening it's very sinister looking eyes, but that might just be my imagination working overtime.

And YES, these are a NEW design with LED projectors. I will know more when I get the information but they should pull so much less current that the relay won't be needed.
