Re: Free LED headlights for three lucky people.

So I was thinking about this a bit more... And while the halo headlights look really cool... I'm thinking they are going to be REALLY hard to see on a car with hidden headlights, like ours >.>

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

So it sounds like the GT-E that Robert is working on is NOT the same as the other red GT-E that was a known rebody. Right? I'm asking because I recall reading a post by the the guy that did the swapping / rebody work. I think it was over on the MC.net forum, and would have been years ago. I just wan...

Re: 70 Lower dash restoration help

While his is not an Eliminator, a lot of the details, tips and tricks will probably be useful. Interio...

Re: Hood scoops - model or option based?

So what about the '69 with the "351 Performance Package" option? I thought those came with hood scoops as well? Rare option, I know. I don't think they did. When I was working for Don back in about 2004 he had a convertible with that option and it had no scoop. Now, I thought there were 2 "levels" ...

Re: Eliminators on the Market (August 2018)

Legit eliminator? https://www.oldcaronline.com/1969-Mercury-Cougar%20Eliminator-ERSKINE-Minnesota-for-sale-ID851852.htm That looks like a sweet deal! When was the last time you saw a mostly solid, "driver" condition Eliminator for under $20k? Been a few years now. I bet this one is sold by the end ...

Re: Cascade Cougar Club Prowl 2018. Tacoma WA

I booked at the Best Western Lakewood Washington (we stayed there a few years ago for a friends' daughter's wedding and it nice and pretty clean and quiet), and is about five miles away from the car show location, not far from a popular mall, and South of the Tacoma/Seattle I-5 parking lot.
