The story I've heard is that the molds were updated to produce the 1969 Cougar model and therefor no longer exist in '67/'68 form.

The '69 molds are all that is left and that is why that model is continually reissued to this day.

That's the same story I heard. I've been away from Cougar stuff for long enough that I very well could have missed news of a reissue. At least there are a few die casts available for the '67 and '68's.

I have bought a couple things from this guy, and get daily emails. The inventory is always different and it's rare that he has Cougars but always fun to see the daily mail.

There are so many good options for cars; Hot Wheels, Sun Star, TFC, Dinky, M2 Machines, etc.

It is neat to see everyone's collections.

My wife used to order directly from Yat Ming, but as of 2010, their site went down. Too bad, even though the shipping took FOREVER, the prices were terrific and they had a great selection of 1/18 diecast cars.

Almost 75 in one photo not including dups. I can't believe the 30th anniversary set is almost 20 years old.
