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.

While I was moving cars around last night I took a few shots of the two 68 together.

Looks awesome Brian. I can only hope my Red one looks half that good.

The rear plate is a Michigan Historical plate. In Michigan you don't have to run a front plate, so you can put whatever you want on the front or nothing at all. The front plate is the original California black plate XLA490 that came on the Cougar when I bought it back in 85. The blue Cougar was built in San Jose CA and was sold in San Jose. Stayed there until I bought it.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the nice comments!
Early in the thread I stated I was going to try and get the XR7-G in the Muscle car nationals at the end of this month in Chicago. Not going to happen this year. Priorities got changed as my son is playing in the Lacrosse nationals in Florida right after Christmas. So, spending the extra travel money to get him down there for that and hopefully win a bunch of games at the nationals.
