Tell me why?

Okay, lets put it to a vote: were all Cougar Convertibles Red? Is the '68 really the best year of all? This is the place to count the votes and find out.

Why?

2. Just like them

3. Sentimental reasons

Can I chose 2 and 3? I love them! They are unique, they sound great, they feel great. I love the way I feel when I'm behind the wheel. My cougar belonged to my Dad before it was mine. It was the car I got my first drivers license in. I got by best friend arrested in it. It was the first car I ever dented. Now it is mine and I love her like a family member :-)

I'll go with 1-3 and ESPECIALLY 4 (LOL).

I voted #2, but #3 is in there too, as I chased R Code since before I could drive, and I've owned it for nearly 26 years. The '66 Mustang was my wife's 1st car: she's owned that for 25 years. The '67 is just plain fun, and lets us enjoy the old cars as a family without the stress of driving a show car around...maybe chalk that one up to #1. I guess it all boils down to #2 though...after all, if they were '77 Granadas (or some such) they would have been crushed long ago.

Definitely #3 ... this was my actual '69 Cougar and now is mine again. Feels good to drive her again, and to show her off!! But for some reason I don't feel 25 again!!

The Cougar wasn't my first car; I had some cool cars before my first Cougar (65 Tempest convertible, 65 Mustang convertible, 68 Torino GT, 67 Austin-Healey Sprite, 65 Impala SS...you get the idea). I got the Cougar when I was 22 and just getting out of the Navy. I couldn't have been less enthusiastic when I first saw it since I'd asked my brother to find me a Triumph or MGB for when I got home. But it turned out to be the car I had the most fun in and the one I should never have let go. So it's #3 for me. I've earned my share of trophies and recognition for the cars I've had over the last 15 years. Now it's just about enjoying them and Cougars seem to still be the ones to do that with.
