The CATS “bringing the show to you” in Huron Ohio at the George Conrad collection was a great event! We had a goal of 20 Cougars attending and with a late arrival in a 69 convertible put us right at 20 Cougars. Mark Pratley and I left for the show on Friday doing a 4 hour 170 mile cruise to the show in our Cougars. Everyone was amazed at the Conrad collection of 174 vehicles housed in a 125’ x 400’ building. George was a gracious host going to each one of his Cougars and explaining the history and why it’s in his collection. He is a die heart Cougar guy and although he likes Mustangs he loves Cougars. George surprised us with a catered lunch with brisket, ribs, pulled pork and chicken. At the show we made George an honorary member of the CATS club. Thanks to John & Dee Baumann for being the lead on this show and planning the event with George. You can view the 150 + pictures I took at the show here:

The winners of the CATS top three participant pick awards in Ohio went too:

Tom & Cathy Wilds with a 1970 Competition Gold Boss 302 Eliminator

Jim & Judy Wojcik 1968 XR7 G

Wes & Stephanie Adkins Modified 1967 Wildcat

The next “bringing the show to you” event is in Springfield Illinois on August 3rd & 4th at the Abe Lincoln car show. Melissa Shereda is being a huge help organizing this event. We have around 40 Cougars committed to attend so this will be a fun event. If you need a hotel room contact Melissa at We will be having a cookout at Melissa home after the show on Saturday. I’ll do another update before the event. You can follow on Facebook at: C4 prowling to Power Light. Show flyer attached.

Hope to see you in Illinois…
