Re: Two more 68 Convertibles have surfaced

The Lucas Hovis Green and White one at the bottom was recently bought by a fellow who showed it on a Cougar Facebook group. He paid a lot for it, and said the construction bill was over 80K. And that was quite a few years ago, I imagine? I believe it!

That's a great page, thanks for sharing :)

Re: Cascade Cougar Club Prowl 2018. Tacoma WA

I feel kind of terrible how I'm such a poor Cascade Club member! I've been in denial about The Prowl this year, but really hope I can get into it and escape with a car of some sort. It is frustrating how the Summer goes bye so fast,and I've simply got to cut down on the other hobbies, lol. My Brothe...

Re: WCCC open house 2018

I have two door glasses, one rear Q glass, and two wing windows ready to be installed by any experts who want to help me finish off a '67 GT Saturday night, lol.. I've failed miserably on having the car ready to go, but we can start her up and listen and throw the back seat in and go for a drive wi...

Re: 13k Miles

When I restored my '68 GT-E the mileage was at 73,xxx and I bought a nice clean replacement speedo/odo and bezel and had to wind it for about 2 hours by hand to get it around to that mileage again, lol. Totally worth it.

Re: AFHQT......

Re: AFHQT......

The engine bay sheer size is bigger in a '69 than a '68 too, I'm going to go ahead and say..both in length and in width.

So generally what'd fit into a '68 bay will certainly fit into that of a '69 but not necessarily the other way around ;)

Re: High Desert Cougar Club of Oregon looking for new members

Hey Conan, I'll be honest..I've been pretty lax in my excitement and involvement because of the affiliation with the Cascade Club for years, trying to keep the eggs into as few baskets as possible. I've been pretty poor about joining them for meetings and outings and I'm sure many of us in Oregon ar...
