Welcome, neat car. It takes a big commitment to own an American classic overseas, glad to see you doing it in style.

My first Cougar was a lime frost '67 standard with manual drum brakes and manual steering. It was a blast to drive, but you had to man up a bit with no power boost. I'd like to drive the same car with the 3 speed manual, sort of back to basics driving.
