March is going out like a... Cougar!

The good news is that better weather is coming and it is time to get your Cougar ready to drive.

We have two great nominees this month and they could not be much more different.

Do I recall correctly that Neal's car is unrestored? If so, WOW!
1968 XR-7 Augusta Green, J-Code, 5 litre, Autolite 6100, 5 spd, convertible with heated seats, cruise control and rear sway bar.

BTW, I think electronic ignition is pointless.
