To me, it does appear to have been repainted at some point ~ there is gray primer showing under some of t...

Re: Rear brake problem

I checked the length of the rod coming out of the power booster according to the shop manual and adjusted it to spec. I even adjusted the rod longer than the shop manual recommends and I just pressure bled the brakes. I just went through adjusting my booster rod as well (replaced booster and MC). M...

Re: Eliminators on the Market (June 2018)

The Cougar is (1) of (3) cars that's for sale in his ad listing; other (2) are Mustangs: https://indianapolis.craigslist.org/cto/d/1970-mustang-...

The window sticker shows competition handling package and its not on the Marti not many mustangs had this let alone cougars.

w/COMPETITION HANDLING PKG
