Re: Kick panel speakers on 68

Just in case anyone is wondering, I started this thread back in 2012 and still haven't fixed those holes...

Re: Finaly 1967 Cougar quaters!

Re: What are these parts?

Not sure what the object in first pic is, looks like a relay of some sort— it’s not a stock Cougar part. The second item is the tail light sequencer unit.

Re: Different types of valances? Or is mine bent?

Is this on the car pictured in your post? If so, your front bumper looks to be tweaked upward which could be causing the problem. You need to borrow Don Rush's bumper bender stick thingy.

Re: 68 XR7 interior refresh Part - 2

Google dash woodgraining for early 40's and 50's cars- there are guys out there that use a paint process that really looks like real wood.

Re: 1968 Convertible Conversion

That looks great, Steven. Makes me want to tear mine apart and start over. BTW, didn't Mercury make a "Bobcat" version of the Pinto? I wonder what that emblem looked like?

Re: 360, 383 or 440 - which is best for the beast?

It depends... is the "beast" the Mini in your signature? If so, I'd go for the 440 with a six pack.

Re: Legendary Cougar Magazine

I don't know if my subscription expired or not, but if applicable, I don't want a refund either. The issues I have are worth more to me than what you charged for them.

Re: Anyone else using their Cougar for a winter time daily commuter?

Since you ask, I’ll jump in to say that this year is the 15 th Wisconsin winter for my faithful 68 daily driver. She’s been through sleet, snow, blizzards, extreme cold, and just about everything in between. To keep warm, it’s really just a matter of sealing up leaky weatherstrip and finding hidden ...
