February 2018 Ride of the Month Nominations are now open!

#1

Post by xr7g428 » 22 Jan 2018, 20:18

Please make an effort to let the nominees know they have been nominated and if possible make sure they are interested in participating.

Thanks!

This thread is where you will put nominations for the
February 2018 Ride of the Month!

All you need to do is to identify the car and the owner. A picture of the car would be helpful if you can locate one.

As a reminder, here is how it works:

You can nominate any Cougar, even your own. All nominations must be seconded.

We will nominate cars until the 26th of the month, then vote from the 27th to the 1st of the following month, and announce the winner.

A new thread honoring the winner will go up just as quickly afterwards as possible. Then we start all over again.

The winning car will be pictured at the top of the Forums header for the month.

I would like to nominate Charlie Brown from the Mid America Cougar Club. Charlie is the proud owner of the 67 XR7 Cougar shown and is working on a father son project with his father...restoring a 68 390 GT. He is an amazing contributor to our hobby and a fantastic person to know.

Thank you for the nomination it is an honor. I love my 67, but I am really enjoying restorting the 68 GT with my dad (in the engine bay working on AC). :). Added a pic of how she looked when she landed in Tulsa.

I assumed the 67 in the pic from Gavin's post when I placed the second.

I nominated Charlie for his 67, he could nominate his dad for the 68 if he wants to share the story...
