Post by Lin Thurston » 06 Mar 2018, 22:32

Hello everyone this is Lin Thurston and after many years I am getting back into the cougar seen once again. I have found a 67 xr7 cougar father and son project I want to purchase and need to come up with $5000.00 more to purchase the car. My son is now thirteen and I want to pass on my know how to him and hope he gets the classic car bug in the future. This is the reason I am offering my 35 year collection of cougar toys up for sale. As you will see there is a lot of items starting with old redline hot wheels as well as many newer ones, old slot cars none of the newer ones, jet wheels, corgi cars as well as the James Bond one missing skis, honey comb plastic cereal cars, matchbox cars, many (tons) of johnny lighting cars, racing champions, American muscle cars and model kits, muscle machines, small custom model kit, auto world cars, motorized model kits, pro shop car kits, battery operated bump and go cars, friction cars, dealer plastic promotional cars, plastic model car kits, Dan Gurney road rally set, Chauncey stuff cougar with Lincoln mercury label, match box puzzle, post cards and some die cast cars. Over 200 cars and collectables in this collection. If bought off ebay individual with shipping cost would run way over the $5000 I need. I am taking offers you will not make me mad so if interested please contact me and I will go over the many pictures with you and give you any details you need. I would write all night if I explain ever car in this collection. Its good to be back in the cougar community looking forward to talking with you guys again. I also have a mid 50's Lionel train set with ten cars, track and one nice bridge. Comes with all controllers as well and can text or email pictures if interested. I also have a 1968 Hertz XR7-G car Diamond blue with dark blue interior it is too rusty to fix would need rebody but front clip is in tact no XR7-G parts or drive train left except sun roof. All vin tags in place.

Hi Lin, welcome back to the Cougar community. Are you interested in selling any single items? Or is this an all or nothing deal? Thank you.

Hi Randy good to hear from you. I really don't want to sell my collection but I need to come up with $3000 to get a car for me and my boy so unless I have other interest I can't split it up. But if I do I would give you first chance you have helped me out a lot over the years. Thanks again for the interest.
