I'd love to have one of these and in the original size. Compared to what I spend on Cougar parts even $100 would be worth it (to me). Rich Truesdell has been selling large prints of his photos I can see where he is getting them done.

Having one of the full size originals, I might be interested in one of the smaller size if it isn't too much money... you know, because I don't have enough G related stuff already.

As the XR7-G is my all time favorite Cougar, I'm definitely interested in getting a poster. Please let us know cost differences and I'll get one or the other.

Don -- Do you intend to change the misspelling in the original "Couger" to keep them from being mistaken for originals?
Definitely going to leave the misspelling, too funny to leave out! As with the last run that was made, it will be done on much thicker stock than original. Of course all patina and yellowing will be digitally removed so as with last run, I do not think anyone will be trying to pass these off as one of the two surviving prints.

Regarding the smaller size, what would you guys prefer? The options I'm looking at right now are 18"x24" or 24"x32". These would both maintain the original aspect ratio, and it seems like both frame sizes are pretty easy to get. Take a look at your wall spaces and chime in on which one you'd like better!

The good news is that the print shop is going to be able to do the full size ones as well!

Wall space?!! I don’t have much empty wall space. Maybe it’s time to start rotating items so they all get some display time.
I will probably get at least one of the smaller sized versions, no matter what size ends up getting reproduced.

May I suggest that this is the perfect excuse to build a bigger garage? Hmmmmm?

I’ve already added almost 400 square feet onto my 1500 square foot shop, calling it the library, which houses most of our collectables, manuals, and popular sleeping area for overnight guests. I can decorate the shop any way I like, but the house decor is my better half’s area.

The cost to make them depends a lot on how many we decide to do, but for the 24x32 our retail price would probably be somewhere around $15-$25.
If we did the smaller 18x24, they could be even cheaper, around $10-$20.

The big full-size one (36x48) is another story as it has to be printed on wide format machinery. Cost estimate came back not as bad as we thought, though. This isn't official yet, but we're thinking of pricing it at $68, which would be appropriate! But it looks like it will definitely be less than $100. One thing we haven't factored into the cost yet is custom shipping tubes.
