I was hoping it was a real Eliminator but after talking to Bill (the administrator) I don't think it is.
When I bought the car I was told it was not, but the guy I bought it from wasn't a Cougar guy who didn't know to much about the Eliminator.
I started finding things that only a Eliminator came with but Bill pointed out some things that say it isn't.
So I guess its a Tribute car. It does have the Posi traction locker rear-end and it is a Cleveland motor with the FMX transmission. I guess I have to get the Marti report to find out the true history.

If it isn't, It is as pretty close as you will get. Either way I love the car and it gets a lot of attention where ever it goes.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Steve Alan.
