C.A.T.S get together

It was a great time and good to see avid Cougar owners on Saturday. Thanks to all who traveled to Huron including the 67 that came over 600 miles!

Re: '69 351W Pulley Question (Running Out of Options)

I see you tested the sender but you need to find an original Ford sender.

Re: Cougars on Barn Find Hunter

He has been selling out of hemmings for 20+ years. Many years ago he came upon some NOS 67/68 chrome trunk lock assemblies. After buying one for $25 and they were in such great shape I ordered 4 more. A few months later in hemmings they were going for $150.
