Re: Harbor Freight - floor jack and stands

Larger saddles can spread the load over a larger area and reduces stress fractures. Plus the larger saddle is much more stable when jacking the vehicle up. If you do not have the saddle 100% centered and you have the smaller saddle the car could slip off the jack, not something you want to have hap...

Re: Assembly after paint.

I don't recall the tunnel ram or anything out of the hood. Bu, YES, it was a Grabber Blue 70 Eliminator and the show was in Harrisburg, PA. So it's likely the same guy. Small world. That was 1982 when my car was first finished. I was all of 16 at the time. Yeah, I would bet it was the same car. Tha...

Re: Harbor Freight - floor jack and stands

Whatever you do decide to purchase I would recommend that you get a floor jack with the large saddle, something like a 6" or 8". A lot of the cheap jacks only have a 3" saddle.

Re: Assembly after paint.

The very first show I took my car to in 1982 had a blue 70 there with the spoiler angled the same way. Weird. Was the car by any chance a Grabber Blue Eliminator? With a 351C, 4 speed? Did the engine happen to have a tunnel ram or blower or something of the sort that required a much taller than nor...

Re: 1968 Car and Driver Readers Choice Poll - Cougar voted "Best Sporty Car" - Decal

I have had a parts car or two that had that decal. I have no idea what the build date was though.

Re: GT-E Introductory Show Car 500033

I may have some pretty interesting news about this car as early as tomorrow, trying to get it sorted out now. No it doesn't have to do with it being ready to run, not quite there yet. I don't want to say much at this point in case it turns out to be nothing. Stay tuned. Keep it up and you may get a...

Re: 1969 xr7 red interior pieces

I have a red 69 3 spoke steering wheel. No center pad. The wheel has a crack in the red area at 12:00. It also has a small crack at 6:00 and 9:00 on the backside of the spoke where it meets the rim. There are no cracks in the woodgrained area. The woodgrain is worn. The rimblow switch is gone. Randy...

Re: Cougar By The Numbers?

While Cougar By The Numbers is a great book it will only be a start to telling you if your car is numbers matching. The information in it is how many cars were built. There are breakdowns by paint color, interior color/style, engine/transmission combos, and options. So the best you will get from it ...

Randy, it's in the title of the thread. :poke:
Yes it is. Either I missed it or the title received an edit. Most likely I missed it. My eyesight certainly is not improving with age.

Re: In registry? not sure

You might not have registered it. Someone could have seen the car at a show or a shop or ??? and got the VIN and submitted it to the registry. If you talk directly with Phil Parcells he should be able to tell you if he has you listed as the owner or submitter and how much information he has on the c...
