Maybe a Cougar in my future?

#1

Post by Tubbster1966 » 24 Sep 2017, 23:13

Been lurking for a couple of weeks. I have been toying with the idea of selling my current car, 1966 Mustang. This is the 4th Mustang I've owned, but I feel it's just time for a change. Originally I wanted to get into a Foxbody, and still may, but Cougars have always caught my eye. I really like the 67-68 years and would prefer a 4 speed. Originality doesn't matter to me as much as it needs to be in great shape. But before I can really start looking, gotta sell mine first! Just thought I'd introduce myself and look forward to asking a bunch of dumb questions! I'd post up a pic of my current car, but don't know if that's a proper thing to do on a Cougar forum!

Welcome aboard, You might want to keep in touch with John Benoit at Cascade Classics. ( http://www.cascadeclassics.com/ ) He comes in to a lot of nice Cougars and will not steer you wrong on one. Even if he doesn't find it he maybe inspect one for you. Good luck on the sale and the hunt for the next one.

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

Welcome aboard.... I will speak for myself but pic of your Stang is welcome as I like virtually all classics.
If you really want a change from your previous Stangs, you may want to consider a 69 or 70 Cougar, especially convertible, as their look and ride are totally different , them being longer and wider than 67-68.. But this is just a matter of taste!

Not that it's the same, but I've owned 2 '69 Mustang coupes and they do ride differently but I prefer the earlier body styles. I do like convertibles but here in the NW, not so practical. Even though I don't take mine out in the rain, ya never know when the rain will just appear.

Interesting. I'm not really into yellow so I'd have to see it in person to see how yellow it is, but a nice car!

Well it’s a sad day, but a good day also. I sold my Mustang today, so the adventure really begins! Probably a bad time to buy in the winter, but I can finally really start looking!
