I wasn't prepared for this

Post by Socal Pat » 15 Jan 2015, 19:45

I've only made a few short trips maybe 10 miles each way getting my new to me 68 tagged and registered. But you'd think I was driving a Viper or a Ferrari with all the thumbs up and waves I get. I think it's partly the novelty of a clean Cougar as opposed to a more common Mustang. I don't know, but I'm gonna start shaving and combing my hair and dressing better when I go out in this car!

I know what you mean. Many have never seen one before and will ask "What type of car is that?".

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

I used to do that, until I realised they were looking at the car and not looking at me at all! Now I drive nude and nobody seems to notice.

get used to it, you will see heads turning and people you don't know wanting to talk to you. I've had people at gas stations ask if they can take pictures; women at stop lights wanting to be my best friend; and countless others, the best of which will be a fellow Cougar owner who will make a U-turn to see where you are going so he/she can talk to you. For the record, I think some of the women prefer the unshaven look, but comb your hair for Christ's sake!

These cars are often called "chick magnets"... But wait until you put your wife in one alone. When she gets back ask her why she is smirking.

Yep - the wife went out and ran out to a few places in the Cougar.
She called it a "Man Magnet" and now refuses to let me be buried in it.
