April Fools day, 1966 marks the beginning of the Cougar story outside of Ford Motor Company. I think many of our less Cougar afflicted friends and significant others may find some dark humor in the date, but for us it marks the beginning of an incredible story.
The story of how Cougar began is brought to you by the good folks of the Cascade Cougar Club, and in particular, Don Skinner Editor of the Cascade Cougar Club Prowler newsletter, with innumerable contributions from the collection of Jim and Elaine Pinkerton. This material was previously published by the Cascade Cougar Club in printed form as well as on a CD that features two bonus articles that did not make it to print. I am sure the entire Cougar Community shares my gratitude to this fine group of folks for assembling this information and making available to us here.
