Scott was probably having a senior moment where he got confused converting metric time into hours.

This would be a good excuse to drive my bumper cores up there to save on shipping.

One year we had someone come from Australia with cores in hand as it was cheaper to check them as luggage than to ship them UPS. Often folks will dismantle their car right here on the spot and spend 2 days on the grass installing parts with lots of onlookers and helpers. It actually works out well since you ALWAYS need a few more items you did not know you needed until you open things up and it also helps that we have almost every tool you could imagine needed to work on an old Cougar. Very much looking forward to this event as we took a year off so we could attend some of the 50th events.

WCCC guys, is there going to be a "How To" session this year, with a live studio audience?

Hmm... ideas ideas...

Drum Brake stuff? details, adjustments, whatever?
Headlight Alignment / Adjustment?
Front Suspension stuff?
Basic wheel / tire alignment? How and when to rough it in after fiddling around with stuff?
Sunroof TS&R? (probably a tough one, with most folks having headliners in place)
Electric Headlight Conversion?
Exhaust details? hangers, brackets, etc, orig vs repro vs aftermarket?

Hmm... not sure what else would be good to cover, interesting & useful (from a marketing / business perspective), yet not too invasive, and can be done while you have 25 cars at your disposal for a day or so.

What if there was a trailer willing to go from east to west. Picking up cougars along the way so more of us could fly out. Anyone know anybody who could load up half a dozen cougars headed to oregon?

As a matter of fact Dave from Precision Exhaust in CT will be flying out and installing one of his complete exhaust systems on a 67 or 68 with 289 or 302. Anyone want to volunteer their car? The labor will be free.

Actually, funny you should ask. We are talking about having clinics / sessions available with some Cougar experts who are coming (TBA). Basically there will be experts available to walk around, look over people's cars, answer questions & help fix minor issues.

How about a Cougar train? That would be something to see...

They don't use open racks anymore to move vehicles, too much vandalism. They do come in three different inside variations though for extra tall vehicles, bi level for trucks and suv's and tri level for cars.
