My first Cougar (68 Std. 4 speed)

Finally got some pics up of my recently purchased cat. I completely forgot to take pics of the engine bay. Nothing special to see there anyway.

Yeah, the mirrors are pretty much useless lol. Until I get the money to redo the paint and body, they're probably staying put.

You have what every Cougar fan wants in his stable, solid CA car, best year, best color combo and all the right options! Very nice... Make sure you have it insured for about $20k, you could look long and hard before you found another just like it.
