Welcome, very nice, and local!
Are you a member of the Colorado Cougar Club?
No. Didn't know there was a Colorado club. How do I contact them?

That’s a fantastic XR7. Beautiful. Welcome to the site. Can you post some interior photos?
Thanks for the compliments. It's the factory color and a factory vinyl top. The stance is probably because I rebuilt the entire suspension with a kit for the Cougar I got from Mustangs Unlimited. Came with new springs and swaybars along with the usual cast of soft parts. Then I finished it off with some KYB gas shocks. The wheels are stock. The BFG tires are just what I wanted on the car I had back in the 70's. :)

I'll get some interior pics this weekend. It's the best part of the car!

OK, maybe its be my 'over 40' eyesight, but I don't see any contact information or any way to register on the site. :bloated:

Do you have any contact information?

You'll have to come see it in the garage. Last time I drove it I had to have it towed home. I think it blew a timing chain since it's right at 60,000 miles, and I remember from experience that mid-60s cars used to blow chains at about that mileage. They had plastic coated gears on the cam. That plus a list of winter improvements to get done before spring.

I'm in Highlands Ranch if you want to come by.

Welcome Mark. That's a sweet looking 68 XR7 that you have, and nice work. With 60K miles, the added freshening of the engine shouldn't be too hard on the wallet. Thanks for sharing.
