August 2017 Ride of the Month Nominations are now open!

Please make an effort to let the nominees know they have been nominated and if possible make sure they are interested in participating.

Thanks!

This thread is where you will put nominations for the

August 2017 Ride of the Month!

All you need to do is to identify the car and the owner. A picture of the car would be helpful if you can locate one.

As a reminder, here is how it works:

You can nominate any Cougar, even your own. All nominations must be seconded.

We will nominate cars until the 26th of the month,
then vote from the 26th to the 1st of the following month, and announce the winner.

A new thread honoring the winner will go up just as quickly afterwards as possible. Then we start all over again.

The winning car will be pictured at the top of the Forums header for the month.

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

I'd like to throw my Cougar into the mix for August ROTM.
Finally finished the restoration on my car and the picture is from the Fordnutz Cougar 50th show in Fort Langley this year.

Beautiful Cougar Darren. I believe that August ROTM has already been decided during July's tied vote. Brian Carpenters Eliminator was to be the defacto winner for August. You can read more about it here: https://classiccougarcommunity.com/foru ... =33&t=7911
