Re: This is a Barn Find to beat all Barn Finds!

I'm fairly new to the Cougar Community having bought my first and only classic Cougar that I had been looking for through Don Rush on eBay back in November of 2013 as he was selling a 1970 XR7 convertible for a friend of his. I've just been laying low and taking in all the comments over the last few...

Re: Hagerty upsets me

I'm with Hagerty and have had nothing but positive experiences with them. I've never sent them an appraisal for my classic which saves me anywhere from $150 to $300 each time. All they asked for was some pictures. I did that but I also did one better by sending them the video Don Rush and Andrew fro...

Re: Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2018 - Fantasy Bid

I'd love to see it go for over $100,000 but I'm going to bid $79,000.

Re: FYI - Status of Cougar 1

Jim and Elaine, it was so great to have finally met you in Dearborn at the 50th Anniversary celebration in June. I can't imagine anyone else owning Cougar 1 but you. However, like everything in life all good things come to an end at some point. You have been such great "parents" to Cougar 1 and it's...

Re: Armor-All on interior windshield

^^^ I pull out sheets of newspaper, ball them and un ball them a few times, spray the windshield with cleaner and then scrub. Your hands will get newsprint all over them but your windows will sparkle :beerchug: - Phillip So you're saying your hands will get dirty from the black ink off the newsprin...

Re: The September 2017 Ride of the Month is Darren Hoult's '70 XR-7

Have to agree with the "Today many Cougar enthusiasts consider the '70 Cougar to be the high water mark." quote in the write up. I have a definite soft spot for the 1970 model year Cougar.
Darren, you look to have a real special Cat indeed! Congrats!

Re: Prayers Needed for WCCC staff...

Having lost a child myself, I have a sense as to how the family feels but can't imagine losing two! All I can say is stay strong and accept any help and good wishes that are offered. It really makes a difference. Time is the ultimate healer but always remember! Take care and god bless JR, Andrea and...

Congratulations Brian on ROTM honors! It was great meeting you in Dearborn and thanks again for giving me a ride back to the hotel in your Eliminator on the Thursday night of the 50th Anniversary show after our dinner night at the Italian restaurant!

Re: Dearborn 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Brian, Andrew and Bill, it was my pleasure either meeting, reconnecting and/or speaking with all of you as well as many others. I learned so much at this show but still only scratched the surface. I've forgotten so much of what I learned that weekend but that is the value of this forum. A quick post...
