Took pictures of my XR7-G today

There were only 619 XR7-Gs built. They were built along side the Shelby Mustang, and were available with every engine and transmission offered in 1968, (except the 427). This was the first Cougar to be a part of the Hertz Rent a Racer program. If you have any information about these rare cats, this is the place to share. The XR7-G registry is maintained by Royce Peterson.

Took pictures of my XR7-G today

My company sponsored a local car show this weekend. I took the XR7-G as few people here locally have seen it. There was four Cougars in the show which was good out of about 600 cars. It was cloudy the next morning so I grab some pictures before putting it away. The car is so reflective it's really hard to get good pictures of it.

Gotta hate it when your car is so shiny that it causes the pictures to reflect sooooo much.
