April 2018 Hemmings Classic Car 'Mercury's Stylish Cougar, Well Appointed Pony Car's 6 page article

Post by Cgrhj50 » 25 Feb 2018, 16:59

While Walt Disney's "Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang" dominates the cover, it was the tiny profile image of a white 67 Cougar that caught my eye. Inside is one of the most detailed magazine spreads on development of the first generation Mercury Cougar I've seen in a long time. There are several factory design studies which I've only seen before in books devoted to exclusively to the Mercury Cougar. Since the price was a modest $4.99, I bought the last two copies. A word of caution though, be careful not to touch the pictures as it's very easy to smudge images. Now I'm glad I bought two copies.

Hemmings must be running a special on Cougars. The latest issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines has an article on the 1970 Eliminator. They even included a photo of 2 blue ones. I wonder who owns them?????? Hint: they are both B2 cars.
