Went out last night with my son to throw the Frisbee before the sun went down.

The other night we drove it down to Bailey farms to pick some fresh corn. It's been fun driving and wrenching since we got it back on the road this summer.

Those will be great family memories. I know I enjoy the rides in my Cougar more when I have my family with me.

You are so right! Always best to involve loved ones when driving in the family pet. I want mine back so bad I can taste it. I'm hoping next week. Autumn, Michigan, and Mercury Cougars! Who has it better than us? Nobody!

Yes I did! And it felt great. My son is coming over this weekend to help me tune it up. (and show him the ropes at the same time, as he will inherit the car). Then we'll give it a good bath, post some pictures, (he shows me the ropes), and carry on with the restoration. We have a lot to do, but what better car to work with than a classic XR7-G! Talk to you all soon.

Put about 110 miles on it this weekend! Did some photo shooting last night for the Calander contest with my 14 year old son. Who was able to borrow the newest Cannon high end DSLR.

He will be busy processing photos this week!

Went for a shake down run up Tujunga Canyon to be sure the beast is ready for our Nor/SoCal cruise to Santa Maria.
Hopefully at this time next week it'll be safely back in its lair after a fun outing! See a bunch of you soon!

Drove Pole Cat on 500 mile round trip wedding adventure. Youngest son got married. Good time, good weather and a great wedding car:

This is the shores of lake Michigan in Petosky, Michigan.
