Hurricane Harvey has been laying waste to a large chunk of the Texas coast. Our thoughts go out too every one that has been effected. It reminds us just how lucky most of us are. In the mean time lets take a look at a couple of very nice Cougars, and then pick one as our ride of the month.

I am a '69 / '70 Cougar lover all the way, but this time I had to give the '68 a vote....it looks very clean and I love the color, but I'm not sure why.

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'm a sucker for gold, so my preference is Gary May's 68, no disrespect to Darren's stunning black 70 XR7.

Both great looking cars -- it was a tough choice, but I had to go with Gary May's '68.
